Trailer tracking has been the primary focus of transportation carriers across the world, and Blackberry stands at the forefront of technology, offering secure and encrypted fleet tracking data on cellular networks.
Five hundred Caravan Transport Group trailers have been equipped with the new Blackberry Radar to commence the joint pilot project. Blackberry Radar is the new, easy-to-use and easy-to maintain, secure cellular fleet and trailer tracking service available to carriers on the market now. The trailer tracking features enables the client to view the status of their cargo, with live updates on locations and programmed events that show up as alerts, taking the guesswork out of supply chain solutions and logistics.
Blackberry Radar allows the driver to collect the freight and get rolling. There is no need to open the trailer doors, temperature and humidity settings are to be adjusted as needed, and both the driver and the planners/dispatchers are alerted when an event occurs. The easy install of the physical hardware paired with complex software and Blackberry encryption technology made Blackberry Radar an easy choice for Caravan Transport Group.
The results of the Blackberry Radar trailer tracking program have been positive, the return on investment is demonstrated in the efficiency of the data being received and time saved in locating loads and determining load contents. Caravan Transport Group’s desire for the top of the line Blackberry Radar technology was to further increase efficiency of loads and data processing and eliminate human errors. The Blackberry Radar software works in coherence with existing dispatch software and complements existing satellite communications, e-logs features and in-cab scanning already prevalent in the fleet.
Caravan Transport Group plans to further expand and continue to equip its fleet with the Blackberry Radar units, with the goal of fitting another 1000 trailers with the tracking devices. Caravan Transport Group is a proud proponent of the Blackberry Radar initiative and excited to see what a future together has to offer.
