Dec. 27, 2013
ORBCOMM Inc, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) systems, announced a multi-year agreement with Hub Group Inc to deploy ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 state-of-the-art intermodal container tracking and monitoring platform.
ORBCOMM Inc (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) systems, announced a multi-year agreement with Hub Group Inc (Nasdaq:HUBG) to deploy ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 state-of-the-art intermodal container tracking and monitoring platform.
A provider of intermodal, truck brokerage, and logistics services throughout North America, Hub Group evaluated several providers and selected ORBCOMM to develop this telematics system. Hub Group will integrate ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 solution to more accurately identify loading and unloading events, which should reduce container idle time and increase customer satisfaction. Hub Group anticipates ORBCOMM’s advanced GT 2300 platform will improve information flow across the multiple touch points between its intermodal/drayage and back-office operations, providing greater visibility to loads. In addition, this system further differentiates Hub Group in the market by improving timeliness of pick-up and delivery information. ORBCOMM’s GT 2300 uses customizable reporting profiles to optimize critical data delivery and power management for extended battery life. This device is also designed to fit internally within the container corrugations to avoid damage during cargo loading, unloading, and movement. Hub Group will begin deployment of the ORBCOMM system in the first quarter of 2014. For more information, visit www.orbcomm.com.
