Parts distribution centers to use I.D. Systems technology

A Tokoyo group has purchased I.D. Systems Inc.’s PowerFleet for 11 parts distribution centers throughout the U.S.

Woodcliff Lake’s I.D. Systems provides enterprise asset management technology. Its PowerFleet Vehicle Management Systems help improve supply chain safety and productivity by restricting vehicle access to only trained and authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists and sensing and reporting vehicle impacts.

Toyota Motor North America Service Parts and Accessories Operations already has a relationship with I.D. Systems, including prior generation solutions used to manage and control forklifts in Toyota’s manufacturing operations.

PowerFleet reduces fleet-maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle operational data, reporting equipment problems, scheduling maintenance based on actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar or manual data entry, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment, the company explained in a release.

“I.D. Systems is proud that Toyota’s Service Parts and Accessories Operations group has chosen PowerFleet once again to help ensure safe and efficient operations in their warehousing operations,” said CEO Chris Wolfe. “We’ve been supporting Toyota for many years now, and we continue to deliver innovative and reliable solutions for other similar top manufacturing operations, so they can remain safe, deliver operational excellence and drive productivity improvements.”

Tokoyo’s manager of Environmental, Health and Safety agreed.

“After reviewing industrial vehicle management solutions based on our selection criteria, we selected I.D. Systems’ PowerFleet as we found it to be a robust, comprehensive product that fit our business unit and specific needs,” Michael Mark said.
