Fleet tracking systems provider Wireless Data Solutions Inc. and its DINET Data Inc. subsidiary have teamed with So Cal Soft-Pak Inc. to provide a turnkey tracking and communication solution for commercial vehicle fleets in the waste management industry. DINET will partner with Soft-Pak to integrate its line of wireless mobile data communications hardware with Soft-Pak's waste management software.
The companies expect the combined product to specifically provide a waste management service that will enable waste fleet managers to control the day-to-day operations of waste fleet vehicles, including vehicle tracking, dispatching priority, productivity analysis and vehicle preventative maintenance.
“The market for mobile communications equipment in the waste management industry is growing rapidly,” said Brian Blankenburg, CEO of Wireless Data Solutions. “The partnership affords us an excellent advantage in a market with very few proven competitors.”
Wireless Data Solutions’ fleet tracking systems incorporate a combination of sensors, mapping software and Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers. With this technology, waste industry fleet managers will be able to see at any given time the location of each truck as well as its real-time status.
