Solution Will Enable Company to Enhance Asset Utilization
HERNDON, Va. – March 9, 2015
– U.S. Xpress Enterprises, the nation’s second largest privately-owned truckload carrier providing transportation services across North America, has chosen industry leading asset management technology solutions from SkyBitz®
. U.S. Xpress is deploying SkyBitz’s tracking technology across its fleet of new dry van trailers, as well as existing trailers, this year. U.S. Xpress selected the subscription-based enterprise solution, SkyBitz as a Service, providing consultative technology service, expert onboarding support and immediate implementation with no upfront capital expense.
“At U.S. Xpress, we take great pride in consistently delivering superior service to our customers. We focus on adopting innovative technology solutions that enable us to improve responsiveness to our customers and increase productivity,” said Max Fuller, chairman and CEO, U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. “SkyBitz has demonstrated unparalleled industry expertise. We were impressed with the way SkyBitz worked closely with us to develop a customized integration that delivers greater visibility and efficiencies across departments – from maintenance to dispatch to business operations.”
U.S. Xpress was looking for a solutions provider that could deliver a deep integration into its existing enterprise business intelligence system. In addition to real-time visibility of its trailer-fleet’s location, U.S. Xpress will be able to monitor and analyze reports for idle time, turn times, detention time, trailer pools, mileage, cargo status, and perform yard checks remotely. This actionable information provided by SkyBitz benefits multiple areas of U.S. Xpress’ company such as dispatch and Transportation Management Systems, maintenance and other reporting tools for business operations, which leads to cost savings and improving the bottom line.
The SkyBitz solution provides complete visibility of trailers and cargo throughout U.S. Xpress’ North American supply chain which helps them to optimize the use of their assets, improve security, and provide their customers with best-in-class service. The flexibility and adaptability of SkyBitz solutions drive more informed decision making and operational processes as U.S. Xpress sought to become more efficient and support growth.
“We are proud to partner with U.S. Xpress to help them improve the utilization of their trailers and also optimize their supply chain operations,” said Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SkyBitz. “SkyBitz is committed to working closely with U.S. Xpress to identify areas to build greater efficiencies and develop powerful analytics to support growth and provide a competitive advantage.”
