, the leader in commercial telematics, today announced that Trancasa, a leading provider of freight transportation services serving U.S., Mexico, and Canada, has renewed its asset management technology solutions from SkyBitz. Trancasa selected the subscription-based enterprise solution, SkyBitz as a Service, empowering them with the ability to update their entire fleet with the latest technology while reducing capital expenditures to receive a quick return on investment.
With more than 25 years of experience, Trancasa is a highly experienced long-haul carrier throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. Its modern fleet consists of light duty trucks, tractors and dry-van and flatbed trailers. Since first placing orders with SkyBitz 10 years ago, Trancasa has continued to grow its business over the years to meet the shipping demands of its customers. The safety and security of its drivers and cargo are of paramount importance to them, especially for those shipments moving between the United States and Mexico. Therefore, one of Trancasa’s main objectives was to update its trailer tracking and sensors technology solution to one that provided frequent reporting and complete visibility of its fleet spanning a broad coverage area.
“Because a large bulk of our business is in and out of Mexico, theft of cargo and safety of our drivers was a big concern for us. We were searching for a solution that offered us real-time information in order to provide increased security and safety for our drivers, cargo and assets,” said Ilse Fernandez, General Manager, Trancasa. “SkyBitz has been a trusted partner that continues to innovate its technology. When they came out with the SkyBitz as a Service offering, it made it very easy for us to update our fleet with the latest technology without upfront investment.”
Trancasa selected the SkyBitz Falcon GXT3100, a cellular product designed for covert installation that delivers accurate, real-time data enabling operations managers to make mission critical decisions. Trancasa also deployed SkyBitz cargo and door sensors for added security measures and increased information for better utilization of its trailers. SkyBitz not only provided real-time trailer location information, but also the capability to perform yard checks and monitor load status and door open or closed status for enhanced security and efficiencies.
“We are pleased Trancasa reselected SkyBitz solutions to update their trailers with the right mix of best-in-class products and services to meet their specific needs,” said Henry Popplewell, President, SkyBitz. “Their recent adoption of our SkyBitz as a Service subscription-based solution to their entire fleet is proof of the powerful return on investment SkyBitz has to offer fleets.”
