Leverages ORBCOMM’s unique, dual-mode technology to ensure the reliability and efficiency of their communications and protection from network obsolescence
ROCHELLE PARK, N.J., May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that Marten Transport (Marten), one of
the largest refrigerated truckload, dedicated, intermodal and brokerage providers in North America, has begun the retrofit of their fleet of refrigerated and dry van trailers with ORBCOMM’s next
generation, dual-mode asset tracking solutions in preparation for the sunsetting of 3G wireless service, which will commence at the end of 2021.
An ORBCOMM customer for more than 10 years, Marten is upgrading their fleet with ORBCOMM’s unique dual-mode satellite and cellular connectivity, offering redundancy in transport load tracking and monitoring to provide reliable communications even in remote areas where cellular networks are unavailable or unreliable. ORBCOMM’s next-gen products feature an embedded global SIM, which enables cellular connectivity on over 565 cellular networks, facilitating deployment in nearly any region of the world regardless of the connectivity option.
Marten is utilizing ORBCOMM’s latest refrigerated monitoring solution to track the freight’s location and temperature, providing peace of mind that their loads are compliant and meeting customers’ standards for quality and service, as well as ORBCOMM’s feature-rich, solar-powered device, which offers end-to-end visibility of their dry van assets. By extending the lifecycle of their IoT devices and ensuring protection against network obsolescence as a result of the 3G sunset, Marten will ensure consistent and reliable communications throughout the supply chain and maximize their return on investment. In addition, ORBCOMM is working with Marten to provide an enhanced professional services offering, including advanced business intelligence and industry benchmarking of refrigerated data to improve operational efficiency and deliver incremental ROI across their business.
“Marten Transport has one of the largest fleets in the U.S. and represents one of our most significant double-play deployments, which has performed well over the last 10 years,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “By helping Marten upgrade their fleet with our dual-mode technology and deploy our next-gen asset tracking solutions, we can deliver the highest levels of network performance, coverage and resiliency to enable Marten to manage their extensive fleet for the long term.”
