John Christner Trucking Selects ORBCOMM For Refrigerated Telematics Solution

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, today announced its StarTrak division has been selected by John Christner Trucking, LLC (John Christner) to provide an industry-leading two-way tracking and monitoring solution for its nationwide fleet of refrigerated rail and over-the-road (OTR) trailers.

Based in Sapulpa, OK, John Christner will use ORBCOMM’s RT6000+, a powerful two-way reefer telematics device developed by StarTrak that provides comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services for its temperature-controlled cargo. ORBCOMM will also provide a robust web application with advanced data reporting and analytics capabilities to increase in-transit visibility and efficiency of John Christner’s refrigerated transport operations. Leveraging ORBCOMM’s innovative solution, John Christner will fully integrate the trailer data with their back-office platform to gain significant fuel savings, optimize temperature compliance and increase responsiveness and customer satisfaction, which will contribute directly to their bottom line.

“ORBCOMM’s telematics system will enable John Christner to take their refrigerated trailer operations to a whole new level of efficiency and see an immediate return on investment (ROI),” said David Gsell, General Manager of StarTrak. “As we continue to see more broad adoption of telematics in the transportation and distribution industry, we are excited about the impact ORBCOMM’s powerful solutions are having on trucking companies in a diversity of market segments.”

“We evaluated several solution providers and selected ORBCOMM’s telematics system for its dynamic data reporting capabilities and proven industry success,” said John Christner, Chief Executive Officer of John Christner Trucking, LLC. “With fuel savings as our primary ROI driver, ORBCOMM’s tracking and monitoring solution will provide the critical insight we need to better manage our trailer fleet operations and increase performance.”

ORBCOMM has begun initial deployment of its telematics system on John Christner’s rail trailer fleet and expects to continue deployment on their extensive OTR fleet in 2014.
