Spireon, a telematics, risk management and location-based business intelligence provider, announced that RJ & Sons — a family-owned and operated transportation company providing Specialized Logistics to customers throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico — has adopted the company’s asset management system on its fleet of trailers.
RJ & Sons implemented Spireon’s FleetLocate to gain greater visibility of its assets, particularly as trailers travel across Canadian and Mexican borders. RJ & Sons installed the devices covertly so they are not visible on the flatbeds.
“Spireon’s FleetLocate trailer management system has helped improve not only trailer visibility but has reduced the idle time of our trailers, resulting in significant cost savings,” said Uriel Verazzi, general manager of RJ & Sons. “Since we can now track mileage of our trailers, we receive proactive alerts, and have been able to optimize scheduling of our preventative maintenance checks, as well as provide an overall better level of quality to our customers.”
RJ & Sons is able to share accurate and timely updates with customers on the status of their shipments. With proactive landmark arrival and departure alerts RJ & Sons can address trailer inventory issues before they become larger problems or cause delays.
“With our unique 99.9 percent performance guarantee, we’re proud to offer the industry’s most reliable and scalable solution to our customers,” said Roni Taylor, vice president of industry relations at Spireon. “RJ & Sons now has full visibility of their entire fleet at all times, including detailed breadcrumb trails of trailer movements, which is especially important for companies operating in remote areas or across international borders where coverage can be inconsistent.”
