Hyundai unit, PowerFleet combine on tracking platform

A Hyundai Motor Group subsidiary has partnered with PowerFleet, the Woodcliff Lake-based provider of Internet of Things solutions, to launch its fleet tracking platform.

California-based Hyundai Translead will use PowerFleet’s LV-300 trailer tracking solution to launch HT LinkSense, a platform allowing fleet managers to better monitor the status of trailers and freight, PowerFleet said in a statement.

“Our integrated logistics solutions will enable customers to access a more holistic view of their trailers and freight status by capturing critical sensor and telematics data,” PowerFleet CEO Chris Wolfe said. “By leveraging our trusted telematics platform, analytics and real-time reporting capabilities, Hyundai Translead will raise the bar with its HT LinkSense offering by delivering high-value asset information to the transportation industry.”

The HT LinkSense solution will be available for Hyundai Translead’s dry van line at launch, but there are plans to expand it to the company’s refrigerated, flatbed, chassis and aftermarket products, PowerFleet said.

“We are excited to partner with PowerFleet as we expand possibilities for customers in fleet data strategy by providing a scalable, open platform solution with HT LinkSense,” said Sean Kenney, Hyundai Translead’s chief sales officer. “Through our partnership, we offer flexibility through universal connectivity of sensors for maximum fleet operational efficiency, making smart fleets smarter.”
