MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Cancom Tracking, a mobile communications company, has announced that Trimac Transportation Services Limited Partnership, a provider of services in highway bulk commodity transportation, has entered into an agreement to add Cancom’s OmniTRACS real-time satellite fleet management system and WebTech’s Quadrant transportation solution.
Cancom, in partnership with WebTech, worked to bring the Quadrant transportation solution to Trimac, which is designed to deliver a unique hybrid business tool by combining both satellite and cellular data communications. Trimac officials said the system will further enhance their fleet management efficiencies through automated Hours of Service, driver and vehicle performance, vehicle tracking, and two-way communications. The driver performance data, which is received directly from the vehicle via the JBUS/J1708 engine computer, is designed to promote optimum driver habits, translating into savings in fuel consumption and vehicle maintenance.
“The selection by Trimac for wireless fleet management solutions for the bulk hauling transportation market follows on the heels of our recent announcement of service offerings designed to address the specific needs of the trucking industry” said Neil Chan, WebTech’s senior VP business development.
“Cancom’s relationship with Trimac across Canada and the U.S. has extended for over a decade and we are thrilled to be establishing this partnership that will support a fully integrated fleet solution,” said Cancom vice president, Mike Ham. “This will provide Trimac with a range of services designed to eliminate manual processing of paperwork both from a driver and office administration perspective while enhancing company bottom line results. A key component will be the back-end integration with dispatching and planning applications wirelessly connecting with dispatch over satellite or cellular for real-time communication requirements.”
