ORBCOMM’s solution, which features a high-sensitivity solar panel with long-lasting battery life and charging capabilities, enables Aikai Butsuryu to continuously track and manage their container chassis, which have no power supply when disconnected from the tractor. With ORBCOMM’s advanced solution, Aikai Butsuryu can access live and scheduled status updates whether their chassis are in transit, at the distribution center or in the container terminal, so they always know where their assets are located in real time. Through the ORBCOMM platform, Aikai Butsuryu can share details on the chassis’ operational status with multiple users in the organization, including driving history, mileage, maintenance requirements and inspection schedules, improving utilization, turn times, safety and compliance, while reducing costs. In addition, the ORBCOMM devices were installed on the chassis in about 10 minutes, which made Aikai Butsuryu’s deployments quick and efficient with minimal disruption to their operations.
“We are excited to provide our state-of-the-art chassis management solution to Aikai Butsuryu, an industry leader in freight logistics in Japan, to enhance the efficiency, productivity and performance of their fleet,” said Sunil Sharma, Chief Operating Officer for ORBCOMM Japan. “We look forward to working with Aikai Butsuryu for many years to come to set the standard for container chassis operations and provide maximum visibility throughout the supply chain.”
“ORBCOMM”s IoT solution has become an integral part of our freight transport operations, seamlessly delivering valuable data and deep insights about the location and status of our chassis fleet so we can make more informed business decisions,” said Keiko Uemura, Managing Executive Director with Aikai Butsuryu. “We are very pleased with our partnership with ORBCOMM and the bottom-line benefits we have achieved by deploying their reliable, proven and cost-effective chassis management solution across our entire fleet.”
