Quickly track intermodal shipments by container location, load status, shipping company, cargo capacity for immediate conversion into billable revenue
The intermodal shipping world is complex, with more and more freight traveling across rail, truck, and ship now than ever before. SkyBitz provides the right equipment and tracking solutions for chassis and containers that deliver critical information to movers throughout the supply chain. Rugged devices and sensors built for multiple modes of transport deliver GPS tracking location, temperature readings, motion and mount condition, unauthorized use, and idle time data. From the shipper interested in the location of their shipment to the drayage carrier that needs to locate and deploy an available container, the SkyBitz SmartTrailer solution links the intermodal asset to accurate data insight through an intuitive, simple portal.
No one likes stagnant containers or drivers waiting around for an intermodal shipment to be unloaded at the rail yard. SkyBitz intermodal solution helps maximize efficiency across the entire operation by enabling carriers to only dispatch drivers when the asset is ready. With SkyBitz, a company can see inside their containers using cameras and advanced AI technology, so they know when shipments are made and when that container is fully unloaded and ready for the next job. Two-way communications improve turn times so trailers are being utilized at optimal capacity and your drivers are as productive as possible.
SkyCamera mounts to the left rear of your trailer, chassis or container, making installation easy and allowing more control over your equipment across your fleet. It communicates with the SkyBitz Kinnect via Bluetooth Low Energy.
Intermodal managers today want to know more information about the status and condition of their cargo from Point A to Point Z, with options such as real-time alerts and cargo visibility. In order to help streamline operations, it’s important to know where assets are at all times. Connecting the dots between container tracking, driver location, meeting government compliance, reducing theft, and realizing capacity of loads helps asset managers improve efficiency.
SkyBitz intermodal solutions provide the global visibility required to maximize container utilization, reduce fuel costs, and improve the shipper experience using real-world data analytics to power supply chain decisions.

“It’s an ecosystem where smart containers are an essential part of the equation,” he said. “We are leveraging this to make near real-time decisions to run our network. To know where that container is and where it’s moving to is not only important to the customer, who wants to consume that information now, [it also allows us] to be proactive when there is a potential delay.”
