HERNDON, Va.– SkyBitz launched the Falcon GXT3100i, a new intermodal chassis tracking and container detection solution, today.
According to the company, the Falcon GXT3100i is designed to provide a complete picture of chassis’ location and whether a container is loaded on it or not via the SkyBitz Container Detection Sensor. It offers intermodal operators visibility of their assets’ entire chain of events – from the arrival and departure from customer sites to all events occurring in between.
The data allows customers to improve on-time deliveries and reduce delays.
The SkyBitz Falcon GXT3100i solution offers ROI for intermodal chassis providers and carriers that enable:
Improved asset turn ratios and reduced outbound loaded idle time.
Views of extremely accurate cargo arrival and unload times.
Increased existing asset utilization which helps reduce rental fees for additional chassis.
Accurate detention management supported with valid data to enforce detention billing.
Total asset visibility through accurate real-time arrival and departure data and reports while the chassis is not only at an intermodal facility, but also while in-motion.
“We are excited to be able to provide our customers with a new level of intelligence on their intermodal operations,” said Henry Popplewell, president, SkyBitz. “Not only will chassis providers receive door–to-door visibility on the location of their equipment, they’ll also gain insight into whether a container is loaded or unloaded on the chassis. The actionable information from this solution allows intermodal businesses to gain better utilization, avoid misuse, and increase their customers’ satisfaction by improving on-time delivery. All of this adds up to cost savings and an improved bottom line.”
The Falcon GXT3100i is ideal for the intermodal industry, said SkyBitz.
