Mckinney Trailer Rentals Expands Its Use of SkyBitz Trailer Management Solutions to Its Growing Fleet
Increase in Business and Customer Demand Drives Company to Add More SkyBitz Mobile Terminals

HERNDON, Va. – March 20, 2013 -SkyBitz®, the leader in remote asset tracking and information management solutions, today announced that Mckinney Trailer Rentals, an industry leading regional provider of trailer rentals, leases and sales, has once again selected a SkyBitz trailer tracking solution for its new fleet of trailers.

With the SkyBitz solution, Mckinney Trailer Rentals will be positioned to provide improved asset allocation, total load visibility and enhanced logistics and security to their customers. In the last year, Mckinney Trailer Rentals re-assessed its trailer tracking needs due to two main factors: increase in its fleet size and a rise in customer demand for best-in-class trailer tracking solutions. Ultimately, Mckinney Trailer Rentals selected SkyBitz to continue to be its trailer management solutions provider for all their 2013 trailer purchases.

“Our customers are requesting trailer tracking now more than they did a year ago. Once we determined we needed additional trailer tracking units, we evaluated all of the remote asset management solutions available in the market today. This process confirmed our reasons for choosing SkyBitz in the first place: their industry expertise and flexibility of their solution. Also, they have been the easiest to do business with,” said Richard Swenson, Corporate Operations Manager, Mckinney Trailer Rentals. “As a trailer rental and leasing company, our customers have a wide variety of tracking requirements. SkyBitz offers all the services that our customers have requested, from simple location information for better utilization, to increased security and trailer status through geofencing, and tracking via motion sensors. Because the tracking units are simple to install, we are able to mount and remove the units as our customers require them. This gives us the ability to more cost-efficiently satisfy our customers’ needs.”

“We are proud to have served Mckinney Trailer Rentals since 2006, and are excited to support their growing business by providing the best mix of asset management tools for a comprehensive solution,” said Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SkyBitz. “Their recommitment further demonstrates the powerful return on investment and overall solution SkyBitz has to offer.”
