STI Chooses I.D. Systems for Onboard Trailer Technology
Specialized Transportation Inc., STI, has recently selected I.D. Systems’ VeriWise technology for its onboard asset telematics. STI receives enhanced remote monitoring and diagnostics on trailer assets such as GPS positioning and utilization status allowing for real-time visibility to all of its trailers equipped with the VeriWise system.
VeriWise technology provides STI critical operations data such as when a trailer is moving, idle, tethered or untethered, its real-time location, location history and telematic system diagnostics. This information provides the basis for reporting, monitoring and optimizing trailer utilization. This enhanced visibility to its trailer fleet allows STI to reduce the need for short-term trailer rentals by identifying under-utilized or idle equipment. The utilization of the VeriWise technology has enabled STI to better utilize its assets hence serve their customer’s at a much greater level.
“The sophistication of the onboard technology is a great improvement for us,” stated Dave Malinowski, STI’s Asset Manager, adding: “we have improved the visibility of our assets which will enable us to make better business decisions. We can also provide up to the minute status by utilizing a virtual web based interface. This visibility is valuable and will provide many benefits to our customers and our organization.”
The VeriWise user interface is very flexible and allows STI to assign an unlimited number of unit-specific identifiers to each individual trailer. This capability enables STI to create detailed reporting and evaluate trailer utilization by region, fleet group, trailer specification, make, model or any other key indicator.
