“Pana-Pacific’s strategy is to partner with industry leading companies to provide best-in-class products to today’s fleets,” said John Trenberth, president, Pana-Pacific. “SkyBitz is an ideal partner based on their established reputation for providing the broadest portfolio of reliable asset visibility, optimization and management solutions. Our shared focus on innovation and customer service ensures our customers have access to advanced, cost-effective solutions that are easy to implement and use.”
SkyBitz specializes in offering tools for companies with unpowered mobile assets such as the trailers. The solutions are able to calculate asset position in seconds, dramatically reducing power consumption and the cost and inconvenience associated with frequent battery replacement, Pana-Pacific said. As a result, fleets get position reports faster and with less power consumption and longer battery life.
“Pana-Pacific has been a trusted partner to an extensive network of customers for over 40 years — that, combined with deep-rooted domain expertise, makes them the right partner to align with to bring our solutions to a wider customer base,” said Henry Popplewell, senior vice president and general muanager, SkyBitz. “We are excited to work with Pana-Pacific to provide valuable solutions that equipment owners and operators, managers and drivers rely on to optimize efficiency, increase compliance and improve customer satisfaction.”
Among the products from SkyBitz is the web-based SkyBitz InSight, which provides managers complete visibility of all their tagged assets and allows them to run customizable management and operational reports for each trailer in their fleet.
