Wireless IoT and M2M provider PowerFleet has signed a national deal with McGuire Transportation, a Texas-based regional dry van trucking company, to upgrade its trailer management.

New Jersey firm PowerFleet provides subscription-based offerings for securing, controlling, tracking and managing high-value enterprise assets.

McGuire turned to PowerFleet’s LV-300 asset tracker for improved trailer visibility and asset use, purchasing 350 units to equip its entire fleet. McGuire hopes this will let it optimise the use of its assets, improve security, and provide its customers with better service.

“We were early adopters of technologies such as electronic logs and computer-based dispatch systems and we continue to add innovative technology to enable us to improve responsiveness to our customers and increase efficiencies,” said Phil McGuire, president of McGuire Transportation. “PowerFleet has demonstrated its industry expertise and we were impressed with their approach to work alongside us to find what was right for our fleet.”

The LV-300 asset tracker provides continuous real-time visibility while in transit, and more accurate arrival and departure information to plan supply chain resource allocation. Its high-frequency reporting ensures end users can receive continuous updates on the status and condition of their cargo.

“McGuire has built its reputation on its strong commitment to its customers and in leading the market in new technology adoption,” said Mark Stanton, general manager at PowerFleet. “We are equally committed to working closely with McGuire to identify ways to garner greater efficiencies as we deliver cutting-edge trailer management that provides powerful insights into their fleet utilisation while improving their customer service and enhancing their competitive advantage.”

PowerFleet provides subscription-based wireless IoT and M2M for securing, controlling, tracking and managing high-value enterprise assets such as industrial trucks, tractor trailers, containers, cargo, vehicles and truck fleets. The company is headquartered in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, with offices around the globe.

Founded in 1989, McGuire Transportation, based out of Temple, Texas, is a regional dry van carrier specialising in servicing the central and north Texas area with available equipment daily in all major Texas cities. The company also leases truck-tractors, storage trailers and over the road trailers through its parent company, McGuire Trucking.
