Hi-G-Tek Partners with Emco Wheaton to Launch Sealed Cargo System
May 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Hi-G-Tek announced a partnership with Emco Wheaton designed to supply a range of wireless Radio Frequency Identification sealed delivery solutions for liquid petroleum and fuel-oil road tankers.
Emco Wheaton has launched a wireless Sealed Cargo System that uses Hi-G-Tek's Pro-Active technology. The SCS provides an accurate monitoring solution for individual compartment valves and manhole covers, resulting in real-time tracking from terminal to delivery point.
Key elements of the system include immediate event alerts and monitoring of the tank truck apertures, GPS tracking, fleet management and back-office interface, and simple installation on existing road tankers. Additional product launches are expected later in the year to further enhance the range of the sealed parcel delivery systems provided by Emco Wheaton.
"We are delighted to be in a position to launch a unique range of industry leading, cost effective solutions to our customers," said Graeme Murphy, managing director, Emco Wheaton SBU. "Integrating proven technology from Hi-G-Tek with our standard product range and global distribution network brings tangible benefits to our clients and ensures our clients' assets are monitored and secure at all times within the transportation network."
