The transportation industry’s technological renaissance has inspired a new era of innovators – and a new era of holdouts. The differences between the two camps have never been more apparent. In a volatile market, the innovators come out on top. They keep working and they keep innovating.
Telematics solutions leader SkyBitz is a prime example of a forward-thinking company set out to disrupt the status quo. The industry standout just launched SkyBitz Kinnect, a next-generation GPS tracking solution that integrates sensor data from trailers and containers through one communications device.
The industry is focused on simplifying information-gathering techniques and streamlining processes right now. This motivation has been evident in almost every major transportation technology announcement this year. SkyBitz Kinnect fits right in, aligning with the industry’s values by offering customers a simple way to tap into asset data – including cargo visibility, increasing capacity for real-time response to load status.
The transportation industry is embracing more effective and easier-to-implement solutions. The industry propelled itself into the digital age with breakneck speed after the ELD mandate took effect a couple of years ago. The result? Individual solutions for every problem, clunky interfaces and too many options. Now companies are attempting to cut the clutter and embracing increasingly available all-in-one solutions.
SkyBitz Kinnect is the foundation for SkyBitz SmartTrailer™ offerings, combining high processing power, wireless technology, a large-capacity solar rechargeable battery
and an optional tether capability, resulting in the most flexible and expandable telematics platform in the industry.
The product offers customers exactly what they have come to expect from digital solutions: real-time information, simple integration and environmental awareness.
“As leaders in digital connectivity, we are excited to introduce the industry’s most advanced telematics device ever, SkyBitz Kinnect,” Siamak Azmoudeh, SkyBitz vice president of product line management, said. “SkyBitz Kinnect raises the bar for telematics performance, driving profitability with exact location and statuses of trailers or intermodal containers in real time. Additional wireless sensors capabilities deliver SmartTrailer information, driving higher levels of productivity.”
With the SkyBitz Kinnect offering, customers will benefit from:
- Long product life in the harshest environments.
- Wireless platform supporting a variety of sensor capabilities.
- Multiple power options ensuring continuous connectivity.
- Volumetric capacity measurements of trailers or containers.
SkyBitz Kinnect currently supports wireless sensors to provide cargo and door status, cargo images and the ability to support additional wireless sensors. SkyBitz Kinnect is designed to support installation on multiple asset types, including dry-van trailers, flatbeds, tankers, intermodal containers and chassis.
The new offering can be customized to meet customers’ specific needs, letting them create the technological suites they need to be as effective and profitable as possible.
