IRVINE, Calif. – Spireon has announced its first solar-powered telematics solution for trailers and other assets, providing customers with a new, energy efficient way to gain location information and data.
The self-powered solution, the Spireon FleetLocate, is compatible with several transportation vehicles and equipment, including dry vans and intermodal applications.
“Spireon FleetLocate is a complete trailer management solution that captures a wealth of Rich Data at the trailer level, then translates the data into easy-to-understand, actionable business intelligence,” said Steve Blair, senior vice-president of sales at Spireon. “From automating yard checks to right-sizing fleets and increasing driver satisfaction, Spireon customers see dramatic improvements across all areas of their operations, ensuring a rapid return on investment. We are excited to add this new solar-powered product to our industry leading portfolio, adding a new option for customers to dramatically improve their trailer management operations.”
After installation of the trailer-mounted all-in-one solar panel and telematics unit, customers tap into a renewable energy source that powers Spireon FleetLocate’s rich data telematics solution, which was developed over six years ago.
Spireon says the design ensures maximum durability both on and off the road, and allows customers to gather information without drawing power from an external battery.
“Spireon’s track record of telematics innovation has solidified the company’s position as a leader in empowering fleet and transportation businesses to improve operational and utilization efficiencies,” said Roni Taylor, vice-president of industry relations at Spireon. “Our innovation is driven by our commitment to delivering powerful new solutions to our customers, and our new solar-powered trailer tracking solution is another great example of Spireon delivering on that commitment for our customers.”
The Spireon FleetLocate is expected to be available in the coming months.
