CPx installs SkyBitz asset tracking system

March 1, 2008
Coastal Pacific Xpress Inc. (CPx) has selected the patented Global Locating System (GLS) asset tracking technology from SkyBitz

Coastal Pacific Xpress Inc. (CPx), one of the largest and fastest-growing truckload carriers in Canada, has selected the patented Global Locating System (GLS) asset tracking technology from SkyBitz for its fleet of more than 700 trailers. Headquartered in Surrey, British Columbia, CPx specializes in temperature-controlled and just-in-time delivery across North America for the food industry and has been honored as one of the 10 best-managed companies in British Columbia.

Instead of upgrading its incumbent trailer tracking system, CPx chose to retrofit its fleet with the SkyBitz GLS 210 system for roughly the same cost because the SkyBitz technology offers numerous advantages and efficiencies.

CPx is using the geofencing capabilities offered by SkyBitz to set geographic boundaries for its trailers — especially in irregularly shaped yards. The carrier is also employing SkyBitz Smart Sensor Tracking to receive an instant alert when any trailer is stopped for more than 10 minutes.

The ease of installation for the SkyBitz mobile units enabled CPx to outfit its entire trailer fleet in less than six months, with nearly all installations performed from a single location.
