Aug. 13, 2021
According to Day & Ross, the successful rollout of the trailer tracking solution to the company’s Canadian fleet, was the catalyst to expand the solution to its U.S. operations, following the acquisition of A&S Kinard and Buckler Transport in 2019.

PowerFleet will be expanding the deployment of its LV-500 solar-powered trailer tracking solution to transportation company, Day & Ross’ U.S fleet operations. With a focus on performance and reliability, Day & Ross will be implementing the solution across a fleet of 3,000 trailers with the goal of achieving better asset visibility and increased utilization.

According to Day & Ross, the successful rollout of PowerFleet’s trailer tracking solution to the company’s Canadian fleet, was the catalyst to expand the solution to its U.S. operations, following the acquisition of A&S Kinard and Buckler Transport in 2019. 

“After the positive feedback we received from mechanics, dispatchers, and management from our Canadian team, we determined that PowerFleet’s LV-500 solution was the right trailer tracking solution for our U.S. fleet,” said David Carr, president, dedicated, North America, Day & Ross. “PowerFleet's trailer tracking solution provides reliable visibility into exactly how and where our equipment is being utilized so that we can gain greater fleet efficiencies. The total cost of ownership was another major consideration and with PowerFleet's LV-500 supercapacitors and 4G LTE connectivity, we are assured long service life of the devices.”

The patent-pending PowerFleet LV-500 is the industry’s first multi-powered asset tracking solution, leveraging solar panels, supercapacitors and long-lasting primary batteries for unmatched service life and critical event visibility. It delivers frequent reporting on the status and location of trailers through PowerFleet’s cloud-based application. A self-contained device that requires no connection to external power, the LV-500 can be installed in 10 minutes or less and provides maintenance-free performance.

"We are honored that Day & Ross has expanded its use of our state-of-the-art telemetry platform to their U.S. fleet based on the value and performance of our products and the best-in-class support provided by our team,” explained Mark Stanton, PowerFleet’s general manager of supply chain solutions. “Our integrated logistics solutions enable Day & Ross to better analyze trailer dormancy and lower costs associated with underutilized assets. The solution also improves on-time and efficient deliveries so Day & Ross can continue delivering exceptional customer service.”
