ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC) has been selected by McColl’s Transport (McColl’s), Australia’s independent bulk liquid carrier of milk, food and bulk chemicals, to provide the company’s asset tracking solutions to monitor ISO (International Organization for Standardization) tanks throughout the continent.
ORBCOMM provides wireless LTE connectivity through its hardware and integrated cloud-based analytics platform for optimal fleet management.
McColl’s is using ORBCOMM’s telematics solution with the ability to track un-powered assets that are being transported by chassis and rail to improve utilization and productivity, streamline operations and expedite product delivery. By leveraging ORBCOMM’s asset monitoring solution, which features a high-sensitivity solar panel along with a wired temperature sensor and a wireless door sensor, McColl’s can gain complete visibility and control over their specialized ISO tanks as well as the ability to monitor and control the temperature of liquids in their ISO tanks and monitor when the tanks are being pumped.
ORBCOMM’s devices can be installed externally on assets in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is loaded, making McColl’s deployments quick and efficient with minimal disruption to their operations. McColl’s is in the process of installing ORBCOMM’s asset tracking solutions and is exploring ORBCOMM’s other IoT offerings as part of their efforts to expand their deployment across additional asset types.
“It’s a great testament to the value and high performance of ORBCOMM’s asset tracking solutions to be selected by McColl’s Transport, Australia’s leading tanker transporter, as their telematics provider,” said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM’s Senior VP and GM of Global Sales. “ORBCOMM’s IoT solutions help McColl’s ensure the safe and reliable transport of their customers’ products anywhere in Australia, while maintaining best-in-class service levels.”
“Our commitment to technology innovation has been an integral part of McColl’s growth and scalability for more than 60 years, and ORBCOMM’s leading IoT technology is the best choice for helping us take our business to the next level of productivity and efficiency,” said Peter Shearer, General Manager for McColl’s Transport. “By improving visibility of the location and status of our ISO tanks and building greater efficiencies into our operations, we can uphold our long-time reputation for reliable service, world-class compliance and stringent safety standards.”
