Rochelle Park, NJ, November 1, 2017 - ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a leading global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, announced today that LTI Trucking Services, Inc. (LTI), a nationwide truckload carrier and full-service logistics company based in St. Louis, MO, has selected ORBCOMM to provide its industry-leading cold chain telematics solution to track, monitor and control its fleet of refrigerated trailers. ORBCOMM will provide cellular connectivity, state-of-the-art hardware, wireless fuel and door sensors, along with a web-based reporting platform for optimal fleet management.
LTI will use ORBCOMM’s cold chain telematics solution to provide comprehensive temperature, fuel management and maintenance data for its refrigerated trailer fleet transporting perishable food, beverage and confectionary products. Leveraging ORBCOMM’s solution, LTI will fully integrate the data with its proprietary back-office platform to optimize asset utilization and compliance with the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). ORBCOMM’s advanced solution also integrates closely with McLeod LoadMaster® transportation management platform. The Loadmaster® two-way interface enables LTI to capture near real-time trailer data, including operational condition and GPS position, through one comprehensive system.
“Our impressive customer portfolio and market leadership in refrigerated transportation is continuing to expand significantly as leading trucking companies like LTI are making ORBCOMM’s IoT technology part of their core strategy to improve fleet and load visibility, maintain temperature requirements, automate processes and comply with FSMA regulations,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “ORBCOMM’s premier cold chain monitoring solution provides LTI with a strong competitive advantage that helps to ensure successful, efficient operations for every shipment moving along the supply chain.”
