PLANO, Texas, Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asset Intelligence, a leading provider of supply chain asset tracking solutions and a subsidiary of I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), today announced that its VeriWise™ Track & Trace system has been purchased by Garner Transportation Group, a leading truckload carrier in the Midwest. Garner will deploy the system on its entire fleet of dry vans for an initial contract term of five years.
VeriWise Track & Trace is an easy-to-deploy asset tracking system that provides real-time data to improve the efficiency and security of trailer and container fleets. It is designed for quick, flexible installation on a wide range of cargo-carrying assets, with patented power management technology to provide exceptionally long battery life and years of maintenance-free operation.
Garner, based in Findlay, Ohio, has provided a wide range of transportation, warehousing, and logistics services throughout the Midwest U.S. for more than 50 years, and has a history of applying innovative technologies to its operations."Garner is committed to investing in technology that helps us better serve our customers," said Garner President Sherri Garner Brumbaugh. "The VeriWise Track & Trace system enables us to gain real-time visibility of our dry van fleet, eliminate manual yard checks, and improve our dispatch efficiency. That translates into more timely, controlled deliveries for our customers, and almost a 10% increase in fleet utilization for us." "We chose Track & Trace for its value, ease of installation, and reliability compared to other solutions we tried," continued Brumbaugh. "It was especially important to us that the system can be mounted externally on our dry vans -- not on the roof where it would be subject to damage -- and that installation takes less than 15 minutes." "We are very pleased to welcome Garner Transportation Group into our family of customers," said Darryl Miller, Chief Operating Officer of I.D. Systems. "VeriWise Track & Trace is an ideal solution for Garner; it's an affordable system that can be quickly and effectively installed, and it delivers greater asset visibility and control that converts instantly into operational cost benefits and customer service improvements."
