ORBCOMM Launches Award-Winning, Solar-Powered Trailer Tracking Solution To Transportation Industry

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, today announced the commercial launch of its GT 1100 trailer tracking solution to the transportation and distribution industry at the American Trucking Association (ATA) Management Conference & Exhibition from October 19-22 in Orlando, FL. Recognized as the winner of CTIA’s 2013 E-Tech Award for Innovation in M2M, the GT 1100 is ORBCOMM’s first self-powered M2M asset tracking and monitoring solution.

The GT 1100’s compact form factor and low, one-inch high profile make it easy to install on trailer roof tops, in between the corrugations of intermodal containers and on virtually any type of unpowered asset. The ruggedized solution utilizes solar recharging technology for low power consumption, efficient messaging and long service life in the field. The GT 1100’s versatile communications platform allows customers to build their messaging schedules around their business requirements without any message restrictions or extra costs, providing the flexibility needed for greater trailer visibility and utilization.

The GT 1100 also includes CargoWatch ®, a robust web application for comprehensive device management, providing complete visibility for fleet and operations managers. This state-of-the-art application delivers near-real-time alerts on trailer status, location, history, as well as arrival and departure events, significantly improving operational efficiency, decreasing fuel and maintenance costs and reducing theft.

“ORBCOMM’s GT 1100 solution is designed to make trailer tracking hassle-free, eliminating frustrating battery changes, reducing maintenance and providing customers with a reliable solution that costs much less over time,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “ORBCOMM has developed a suite of asset tracking solutions tailored for the transportation and distribution industry that can meet the needs of every niche market – from reefer monitoring to intermodal container security to dry van asset tracking. Couple these solutions with ORBCOMM’s global satellite and cellular airtime and powerful web applications, and we offer our customers a complete telematics solution.”
