To manage logistics of this critical industry, fleet operators use wireless technology to locate and manage the movement of their trucks and trailers. To stay in touch with those vehicles, operators simply must live with the spotty coverage offered by terrestrial networks, pay high prices for satellite coverage, or install multiple wireless devices, each operating on a different wireless network.
We understand the realities of logistics and delivery, and constantly innovate communication solutions that respond to your challenges. The SkySite® Network’s wide area coverage means that even the most rural roads and geographies can be served with one affordable service. Space Data can work with you and other partners to deliver affordable tracking devices that integrate GPS and wireless to fit your needs.
All this requires more than 3.6 million heavy-duty Class 8 trucks and over 3.5 million professional truck drivers – without which the American economy would grind to a halt.
Nearly 71% of all freight tonnage in the U.S. moves on the back of trucks.
Moving 10.5 billion tons of freight annually
The US trucking industry accounts for more than 6% of all the full-time jobs in America.
The trucking industry in the U.S. is worth hundreds of billions of dollars.
Some transportation applications that use Space Data Spectrum include:
Truck and Trailer Tracking
Track your vehicles and your staff for improved safety, security, and accountability. These applications allow you to make the most of GPS capabilities, such as tracking vehicle data, location and speed, to ensure route adherence,delivery agility, and adherence to safe driving requirements. Monitor fuel consumption, ignition status and perform on-board diagnostics for proactive vehicle maintenance to make sure your fleet is always ready to deliver.
With GPS onboard, cargo or hazardous materials that need extra attention can be tracked in real-time using the SkySite® Network. This is especially important for on-time delivery, theft recovery and homeland security applications. Space Data can help cargo companies integrate GPS devices into their cargos and integrate their tracking systems into the SkySite® Network.
Telematic Data Capture
Fleet operators use wireless technology to transmit telematic data gathered from sensors mounted in the vehicles. Telematics is a growing area that leverages wireless communications in order to transmit diagnostic data such as engine status from a vehicle’s on-board computer to a central gathering point.
Voice Dispatch for Workforce management
Gives you centralized control of your workforce, these applications offer customizable user interfaces to allow your dispatcher to coordinate your staff efficiently and effectively. They also enhance business connectivity by allowing telephony interconnections and multi-system patching.
