Canadian trucking company chooses Orbcomm tech for fleet retrofitting

Orbcomm Inc., the Rochelle Park-based provider of Internet of Things solutions, announced this week that a Canadian trucking company has begun to implement its cold chain monitoring solution.

Light Speed Logistics, which serves the North American market, is retrofitting its refrigerated fleet in preparation for the sunsetting of 3G wireless technology at year-end, Orbcomm said in a news release. The company is also adding Orbcomm’s latest solar-powered asset management solution for its new dry van trailers.

“It’s great to see longtime customers like Light Speed Logistics continue to evolve their telematics deployments by taking advantage of Orbcomm’s next-gen IoT technology to enhance their fleet operations,” Christian Allred, Orbcomm’s executive vice president and general manager of global sales, said in a prepared statement.

Financial terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
