Fleetilla, which specializes in asset tracking, fleet management and related IoT solutions, and Polte Corporation, a leader in advanced cloud location over cellular (C-LoC) technology, are collaborating to integrate Polte’s location technologies into Fleetilla’s asset tracking and freight visibility solutions, the companies say.
Fleetilla has developed and deployed long-life, battery-powered asset management technology in challenging environments for nearly 20 years. The company’s FL950 series hardware, along with its cloud-based asset management application and APIs, provide a solution for managing semi-trailers, rail wagons, land-based inter-modal containers, rental equipment and other assets. With the addition of Polte’s location technology, which offers indoor and outdoor tracking, Fleetilla will be positioned to offer seamless freight and equipment visibility across the supply chain, the company said.
“Location is the foundation for all of the supply chain visibility and digital freight revolution that we are witnessing today,” said Pradeep P. Kumar, Fleetilla’s president and CEO. “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.”
Polte’s C-LoC solution leverages available 4G and 5G signals and cloud-based machine learning to enable accurate location indoors and outdoors. Polte’s algorithms offload location calculations from the device and compute them in the cloud, the company said, reducing time-to-market while outperforming other cellular location solutions.
“We are excited to collaborate with Fleetilla to bring visibility to their customer’s assets not previously possible,” said Ed Chao, Polte CEO. “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.
“Polte’s solution brings additional functionality to their already impressive lineup of fleet tracking devices.”
