Enables Pottle’s to increase asset utilization, improve turn times and provide the highest level of quality service and customer satisfaction

Rochelle Park, N.J. - ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Pottle’s Transportation, LLC (Pottle’s), a nationally recognized carrier based in Bangor, ME, to provide its latest trailer monitoring solution for their dry van fleet. ORBCOMM’s end-to-end telematics solution provides wireless connectivity through its industry-leading hardware and integrated Cloud-based analytics platform for efficient fleet management.

Pottle’s is using ORBCOMM’s advanced trailer monitoring solution, which features a high-sensitivity solar panel and built-in cargo sensor, along with its robust platform to manage its dry van trailers, gaining complete visibility and control over their entire fleet. ORBCOMM’s solution enables Pottle’s to access live and scheduled status updates whether their trailers are in transit or in the yard, so they always know where their trailers are located and if they are empty or loaded, improving turn times and yard management while saving their drivers time and fuel. ORBCOMM’s trailer telematics solution also provides Pottle’s with the unique ability to see precise data to schedule trailer maintenance, inspections and time elapsed for increased asset utilization and performance. The ORBCOMM devices can be installed externally on trailers in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is loaded, making Pottle’s deployments quick and efficient with minimal disruption to their operations.

In addition, Pottle’s will utilize ORBCOMM’s trailer telematics data with their McLeod Transportation Management Software (TMS) for a centralized view with actionable insight, enhancing productivity throughout their entire organization.

“We are pleased to be selected by an industry leader such as Pottle’s Transportation to launch their fleet-wide trailer monitoring program, which leverages ORBCOMM’s advanced functionality, value-added services and deep expertise in transportation,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM Inc. “ORBCOMM’s ability to provide best-in-class telematics solutions for multiple transport asset classes through one integrated platform offers Pottle’s a strong, long-lasting ROI and supports their plans for future growth and expansion into new markets.”

“Trailer tracking is an essential tool for enhancing visibility, improving utilization and lowering costs, and ORBCOMM offers a solution that gives us all of those benefits through accurate locations and cargo sensing data,” said Chelsea Pottle Demmons, Vice President of Pottle’s Transportation. “One of our main goals is to reduce the amount of time spent sending drivers into locations looking for empty trailers. We searched the market for a trailer monitoring system that meets all of our needs reliably and cost effectively, and we found it with ORBCOMM.”
