CTTMX, one of the largest providers of vehicle fleet tracking and logistics in Mexico and Central America, is using CalAmp's intelligent telematics devices and smart sensors to migrate its fleet operations from 2G to 3G and 4G networks.
 
A total of 20,000 fleet vehicles will be integrated with California-based CalAmp's 3G and 4G telematics technology to improve efficiency, reliability and supply chain management, from point-of-pack at the manufacturer to last kilometre distribution through shipping providers.
 
The contract was made through CalAmp’s recently appointed local value-added distributor Dogo Informatique.
 
"By working with Dogo and CalAmp, we can now deliver the most advanced supply chain and cold chain services to our enterprise customers to ensure the safety of their assets and compliance with the latest regulations," said Agustin Rodriguez Zazueta, chief operating officer for CTTMX.
 
The partnership between CalAmp and Dogo aims to expand access to fleet and supply chain management for fleet and asset managers, insurance providers and car rental companies across Mexico and Latin America.
 
"This partnership is an exciting opportunity for CalAmp to support mobile IoT expansion across Latin America," said Carl Burrow, senior vice president of global sales for CalAmp. "Our goal with Dogo Informatique is to demonstrate that the transition to next-generation networks doesn't have to be painful for their customers and is absolutely essential to help ensure a secure and reliable supply chain and efficient fleet management. There are a variety of challenges that fleet managers, insurers and rental companies face daily, and 3G and 4G IoT can help enable more effective solutions."
 
As a major trade hub, Mexico has struggled with supply chain problems such as security and a fragmented distribution infrastructure. As major carriers move to shut down 2G networks across Mexico and Latin America, CalAmp and Dogo are teaming up to deliver access to 3G and 4G networks providing higher speeds, increased reliability and more secure cellular connectivity. CalAmp's telematics device and supply chain technology will support a broad range of applications, from fleet management and cold chain visibility for food and beverage transport, to stolen asset recovery and risk mitigation.
 
"Providing our customers with access to CalAmp's full portfolio of software, devices and services dramatically increases our ability to deliver advanced telematics to our broad customer base across Latin America," said Maria Laura Osuna, business developer for Dogo Informatique. "By collaborating with CalAmp, we are able to provide major enterprises like CTTMX with best-in-class supply chain and fleet management technologies along with our 24/7 technical support, financing and expanded inventory."
 
Dogo Informatique is a developer of the TRM System aimed at tracking vehicles and stationary assets, as well as personal tracking. It has a portfolio of services and products, as well as the representation of other applications and equipment that allow it to work in markets such as supply chain, logistics and asset security.
 
CTTMX's core business is fulfilment of cold chain custody overseas, telemetry and logistic, and transportation security advisory. It is the only company in Latin America certified by USDA, the USA’s Department of Agriculture. It has a presence in Mexico, USA, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
 
CalAmp, headquartered in Irvine, California, has been publicly traded since 1983.
