Logistics company picks Orbcomm solutions for its fleet

Orbcomm Inc., the Rochelle Park-based provider of Internet of Things solutions, has been selected by a Toyota Tsusho subsidiary to upgrade its fleet of trucks and refrigerated trailers.

Orbcomm will upgrade the fleet of TLD Logistics Services Inc., based in Knoxville, Tennessee, the company said in a statement.

“TLD Logistics is an exciting win for Orbcomm, and we look forward to integrating our industry-leading IoT technology into their operations and supporting their commitment to keeping their drivers safe, compliant and less stressed on the road by eliminating manual data entry,” said Chris MacDonald, ORBCOMM’s senior vice president of transportation solutions. “Orbcomm’s comprehensive in-cab and cold chain solutions deliver strong ROI value to TLD by facilitating optimal fleet management, better workflow and enhanced customer service.”

TLD tested several telematics solutions before selecting Orbcomm, TLD General Manager Chris Stephens said.

“Orbcomm’s longtime industry expertise and ability to allow us to see both our trucks and refrigerated trailers in one intuitive platform is a game-changer, and the automation of critical business processes, plus having access to reefer temperature in the cab, has greatly improved the overall driver experience,” Stephens said.
