CSI Wireless has announced its Fleet-Link asset-tracking product is now being shipped to application service providers, OEMs and other customers.
Fleet-Link is a self-powered asset-tracking device used to monitor and manage truck trailers, freight containers and other mobile assets from a central command center. The first model of the device includes a solar-powered option and is available for trucking companies and international shippers. It communicates using the MicroBurst cellular network developed by Aeris.net which CSI says provides coverage throughout North America.
The company plans to soon release a second Fleet-Link model which will communicate using the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) cellular technology which is used by nearly 75% of the world’s wireless subscribers and networks.
Fleet-Link can report incidents including: cargo that’s been opened during transit, cargo that has stopped outside its origin or destination for an extended period of time, excessive vehicle speeds, vehicles that have strayed from their route, excessive engine use or idling time, reefer trailer temperatures, activated door alarms and other such events.
