Coastal Pacific Xpress Inc. (CPx), a Canadian truckload carrier, has selected the asset-tracking technology from SkyBitz for its fleet of more than 700 trailers. Headquartered in Surrey, British Columbia, CPx specializes in temperature-controlled and just-in-time delivery across North America for the food industry.
CPx decided against upgrading its incumbent trailer tracking system, according to SkyBitz.
"SkyBitz has a more interactive, modernized Web interface and deeper detention reporting capabilities," says CPx IT manager Clint Hall. "SkyBitz also has an active research & development group and has already incorporated our feedback into product and service enhancements."
CPx is also using SkyBitz geo-fencing capabilities to set geographic boundaries for its trailers, especially in irregularly shaped yards. And it's using sensor tracking to receive an instant alert when any trailer is stopped for more than 10 minutes.
