BlackBerry has integrated its Radar multi-sensor trailer monitoring device within Isaac Instruments’ Open Platform fleet management software, and Titanium Transportation Group is the first commercial fleet to deploy the new option.
The integration allows fleet managers to have an aggregate view of current tractor and trailer operations in a single console, enabling them to better manage and automate their dispatch operations, driver messaging and hours of service compliance, Isaac officials said in a press release. With the addition of BlackBerry Radar to Isaac's Open Platform ecosystem, fleets will have the added capability of accessing near real-time data on the status of their trailers, chassis or containers. In addition to location visibility and history, BlackBerry Radar also provides a range of sensor data such as route and mileage, temperature, humidity, door open/close and cargo load state, now all within a single user-interface in the Isaac Open Platform.
Titanium deployed the solution for its entire fleet of trailers and commercial vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.
“With supply chain issues that show no sign of easing up anytime soon, having timely and accurate data that can help you eliminate wasted time and effort and that improves service, the life of drivers and the bottom line has never been more important,” said Christopher Plaat, senior vice president and general manager of BlackBerry Radar. “Isaac has a strong footprint in the Canadian market and our combined offering for transportation and logistics businesses will allow joint customers to have better coordination between their drivers, trucks, and trailers to unlock excess shipping capacity. Being more efficient is critical during these unprecedented times when there are added pressures on compliance, equipment utilization and drivers as the lifeblood of our economy.”
