Industries: Transportation and Distribution

Chassis Tracking

Real-time chassis tracking, monitoring and control is proven to enable better business planning, streamline operations, minimize theft, improve preventative maintenance and repair, and enhance customer service.

Optimizing chassis operations without readily accessible data is a complicated process that requires a great deal of manual effort. Data obtained through manual processes is likely not 100% accurate and is often outdated, hampering efficiency and putting companies who have been slow to adopt chassis tracking technology behind the competition.

Improve Chassis Utilization

  • Reduce dwell times and identify unused assets to get chassis back into service and making money.
  • Save time, money and manual labor costs by locating chassis and properly distributing them to different areas. Plus, improve land and yard planning.

Gain Complete Visibility and Control

  • Determine if the associated container is mounted or unmounted on the chassis as it moves throughout the supply chain.
  • Help prevent chassis theft, loss, misuse and unauthorized runs with accurate chassis tracking and location history.
  • Improve customer service with more accurate on-time deliveries, billing, ETAs and in-route chassis location updates.

Leverage Smart, Sleek, Easy-to-Install Devices

  • Low profile and sleek form factor devices enable quick and covert installation, protecting the hardware from contact with the container during loading.
  • Connect to tractor power source or use the solar rechargeable battery for reliable, long-service life.

Give Meaning to Data with Powerful Software and Mobile Apps

  • ORBCOMM's CargoWatch® web application delivers near-real-time alerts on chassis location, geofence access, status change events (bare or mounted) and historical reporting for complete visibility and enhanced operational efficiency.
  • Manage your chassis fleet on the go, from any mobile device. Track location, monitor status and manage alerts right from the palm of your hand, on iOS and Android.
