Aether Systems Inc. today announced that nationwide truckload carrier TRL Inc. plans to convert its entire fleet of 600 trucks to Aether MobileMax for wireless fleet tracking and messaging.
Pittston, PA-based TRL specializes in dry and temperature-controlled transportation services and has long been a proponent of wireless solutions for its fleet, Aether said.
After evaluating and testing several alternatives in the market, TRL, which has been using integrated mobile communications in its fleet for nearly 10 years, decided to adopt MobileMax.
"We found that MobileMax gave us a great value for our money and does the most to improve visibility, communication, and the overall effectiveness of our fleet," said TRL president & CEO Stephen Hrobuchak.
The MobileMax system transmits dispatch and data messages and GPS position reports, and provides data on state-line crossings, vehicle fault codes, and driver performance.
