Transport International Pool, commonly known as TIP, has signed an agreement to market a satellite-based tracking system for untethered trailers.
The system was developed by Vantage Tracking Solutions, a business unit of Orbcomm, the first commercial provider of global low-earth-orbit satellite data. The Vantage trailer tracking system reports vital information, such as the trailer's precise location, whether a trailer is connected or disconnected from a tractor, if it is loaded or empty, and if its doors are opened are closed.
TIP plans to provide the transportation industry with leased and rented trailers that are equipped with the Vantage tracking system and will work with customers to integrate the system into their trailer fleets.
Qualcomm is also marketing the system.
