DT301T Tablets Deliver Superior Durability and Reliability for Nationwide Intermodal Logistics Company

SAN JOSE, Calif. - DT Research, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, today announced that IMC Companies, a nationwide leader in intermodal logistics and the largest marine drayage provider in the U.S., relies on DT301T rugged tablets for backend transportation system management and container maintenance coordination within IMC Companies yards. IMC Companies selected DT Research’s DT301T rugged tablets based on the superior durability, reliability, sunlight readable and cost-effectiveness of the units, which is made possible through DT Research’s unique purpose-built design.

With over 50 locations nationwide, IMC Companies is the nation’s largest marine drayage provider with an integrated network of smart depots. IMC Companies uses the DT301T tablets to track, maintain and repair containers and chassis moving in and out of the company’s integrated network of logistics businesses, which provide an array of services including container drayage, expedited services, customs brokerage, truck brokerage, freight forwarding, warehousing, chassis provisioning and secured container storage.

“The DT Research rugged tablets have all the features we need, along with the durability necessary to stand up in our rough environment,” said Robert Spiecha, Director of IT, Engineering and Operations at IMC Companies. “We tried other tablets, but found ourselves continually fixing broken attachments, dealing with dead batteries and frustrated with poor wireless communication capabilities. We have found the DT301T tablets to be much more durable with better WiFi and the hot-swappable batteries ensure we never have a dead tablet. We are so impressed with DT Research’s tablets, we plan to standardize on them with handhelds and vehicle mounted devices throughout the business.”

The DT301T tablets provide IMC Companies with the industry’s only purpose-built rugged tablets with hot-swappable batteries, which allows the tablets to remain working while batteries are changed and eliminate downtime. The DT301T rugged tablets are military-grade with an IP65 rating, yet lightweight - offering the versatility to be used in the field and in vehicles as well as in office environments.
