Fleetilla, an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Asset Tracking, Fleet Management, and IoT Solutions provider, and Polte Corporation, a Richardson, Texas-based positioning technology solutions provider for the Internet of Things (IoT) and leader in Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, as per recent reports, have entered into a collaboration agreement to integrate Polte’s location positioning technologies into Fleetilla’s Asset Tracking and Freight Visibility Solutions.
Fleetilla’s FL950 hardware series, along with Fleetilla cloud-based asset management application and APIs, are crafted specifically for asset managers to quickly and easily manage semi-trailers, rail wagons, land-based inter-modal containers, rental equipment, and other assets. Now with this announced Fleetilla-Polte collaboration with combined Polte’s indoor and outdoor location tracking technology, Fleetilla reportedly is all set and geared up to offer seamless freight and equipment visibility across the entire supply chain.
“Location is the foundation for all of the supply chain visibility and digital freight revolution that we are witnessing today,” mentioned Pradeep P. Kumar, President & CEO, Fleetilla. “In order to connect the dots seamlessly, equipment and freight (particularly LTL) need to be tracked on the road, as well as at the factory and the warehouse. Polte’s breakthrough location technologies, coupled with Fleetilla’s nearly two decades expertise in design and deployment of long-life, wide area outdoor location solutions, will allow us to now offer seamless end-to-end supply chain and equipment visibility – indoors and outdoors.”
“We are excited to collaborate with Fleetilla to bring visibility to their customer’s assets not previously possible,” stated Ed Chao, CEO, Polte. “Our software-only solution enables Fleetilla to rapidly get to market since it does not require changes to existing hardware designs. In addition to accurate indoor and outdoor positioning, this collaboration brings an added level of value to their customers through improved battery life and added security.” Continuing Chao added, “Polte’s solution brings additional functionality to their already impressive lineup of fleet tracking devices.”
