SkyBitz®, A leader in commercial telematics, has announced that Paschall Truck Lines (PTL), a Transport Topics Top 100 dry-van freight carrier, has selected asset management solutions from SkyBitz for its fleet of trailers.
After researching and evaluating trailer technology systems for several years, PTL chose SkyBitz for its product reliability, intuitive web services, customer service, and the convenience of an affordable subscription platform, SkyBitz as a Service, which eliminates any upfront capital investment.
With the SkyBitz asset management solution PTL receives frequent reporting and complete visibility of its fleet which operates in the 48 contiguous United States. In their decision making process, PTL realized there were additional benefits of an asset management solution beyond trailer tracking– the technology was more advanced and more affordable. Reducing driver frustration over wasted time searching for trailers and increased utilization were key drivers in PTL’s decision to move forward with implementing asset management technology across its fleet. PTL has reported they are now able to communicate estimated time of arrivals much more accurately, which helps to improve customer relationships.
“The SkyBitz asset management system has helped us get more efficient with faster turn times and fewer idle days on our trailers. We’re also able to help reduce our drivers’ frustration looking for assigned trailers,” said Misty Darnell, Director of Business Improvement & Internal Audit, PTL. “The attention to detail and service from SkyBitz was the deciding factor for us.”
“We take pride in helping PTL find efficiencies in their trailer operations in order to cut costs and help with their driver retention,” said Henry Popplewell, President, SkyBitz. “Ever since we launched SkyBitz as a Service, carriers are realizing asset management technologies are more accessible than they previously thought. They can start implementing the solution without coming up with upfront capital. Ease of acquisition, coupled with the additional benefits of working with our dedicated Customer Success Team for the life of the asset, make SkyBitz the ideal choice for carriers of various sizes.”
PTL is using real-time location reporting and cargo load status information from the SkyBitz Falcon series with cargo sensor solution. SkyBitz provides PTL with robust reporting, dashboard analytic tools for key performance indicator (KPI) metrics, and access to a hands-on team of customer success managers.
