SkyBitz Announces Kuantum: Best-Selling Trailer Telematics Platform Gets Better
Integrated cargo sensor and expanded features help fleets speed trailer ‘turns’
HERNDON, Va., Oct. 25th, 2022 — SkyBitz, a leader in industrial IoT telematics solutions, announces Kuantum, the next-generation of the transportation industry’s best-selling trailer telematics platform to maximize asset utilization.
With the release of Kuantum, SkyBitz replaced its best-selling GXT5002C trailer telematics solution with a purpose-built platform for increasing revenue and profitability by maximizing fleet capacity using the same number of trailer and intermodal container assets.
“In the current environment, fleets of all sizes are looking to fully utilize drivers, trailers, and container assets to protect their margins from sliding rates and runaway inflation,” said Henry Popplewell, Division Vice President of SkyBitz. “Kuantum delivers essential, real-time information and insights for turning trailers faster to maximize revenue, cost savings, and driver satisfaction.”
Kuantum has an integrated ultrasonic cargo sensor, harness solar energy to recharge its internal battery, and uses a state-of-the-art power management system to reliably deliver high-frequency, event-driven reporting of trailer locations and empty/loaded status. The ruggedized hardware is compact and engineered to deliver maintenance-free service for the life of a trailer.
Fleets can do more with less by using the next-generation Kuantum platform that provides accurate, timely, and relevant asset and cargo intelligence. With Kuantum, fleets with mixed assets can optimize their dry vans, and intermodal containers by:
- Turning assets faster to increase driver productivity and revenue.
- Detecting misuse of assets by customers and other third parties.
- Decreasing reliance on customer notifications to schedule pickups.
- Automating yard checks and other manual tasks.
- Verifying detention events with arrival, load/unload, and departure data.
SkyBitz Kuantum is Bluetooth-enabled and operates on the 4G LTE Network with 5G compatibility. The device mounts on the front of a trailer and functions as a single gateway to support multiple wireless sensors in the SkyBitz SmartTrailer™ ecosystem. Configurable reporting options and over-the-air programmable capabilities ensure a future-proof investment.
The SkyBitz Insight web Portal delivers a single dashboard that unifies management of mixed trailer assets and provides instant visibility of trailer and cargo status from data captured by Kuantum and other SkyBitz devices. All data in the SkyBitz Insight web portal is available for real-time integration with transportation management systems through APIs.
