Knight Transportation is expanding its use of Asset Intelligence’s VeriWise trailer management solutions. Knight has been an Asset Intelligence customer since 2000.
Asset Intelligence is a subsidiary of I.D. Systems.
The new contract calls for the addition of 400 new tracking systems, including VeriWise Reefer Control systems for refrigerated trailers and VeriWise Dry Van systems, with cargo sensing, for dry van trailers.
“We have tightly integrated VeriWise fleet management technology into our trailer operations and view it as a significant competitive advantage,” said Steve Grover, Knight’s senior vice president of technology and innovation. “VeriWise systems provide effective, reliable visibility and situational awareness of our trailer fleets to help us optimize asset utilization, minimize costs, and improve customer service.”
VeriWise asset tracking systems combine sensor, wireless, and web technologies to provide real-time visibility and control of trailers and their cargo. The systems automatically identify, analyze, and respond to critical transportation issues to improve the efficiency and security of logistics operations.
VeriWise Dry Van is an advanced trailer monitoring system with patented full-length cargo detection sensors and solar charging technology. The system reports reliable, uninterrupted trailer location and loaded/ unloaded status—even if the trailer is disconnected from tractor power for an extended period.
VeriWise Reefer is a refrigerated trailer management solution, which has been integrated with both Thermo King and Carrier. It allows users to manage temperature set points remotely and react to problems quickly, with real-time alerts based on automatic exception data analysis.
“Knight has been an important Asset Intelligence customer and technology partner for 14 years,” said Kenneth Ehrman, chairman and CEO of I.D. Systems. “We are gratified to continue to expand on that relationship with this new contract.”
