Fleetilla and Polte Collaborate to Extend Supply Chain & Equipment Visibility

By Ken Briodagh April 09, 2019

Fleetilla, a provider of Asset Tracking, Fleet Management and IoT Solutions, and Polte Corporation, Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology provider, recently announced a collaboration to integrate Polte's location technologies into Fleetilla's Asset Tracking and Freight Visibility Solutions.

Fleetilla’s FL950 series hardware, along with its cloud-based asset management application and APIs, are designed to provide a solution to manage semi-trailers, rail wagons, land-based inter-modal containers, rental equipment and other assets. With the addition of Polte's indoor and outdoor location tracking technology, Fleetilla reportedly is set to offer seamless freight and equipment visibility across the supply chain.

“Location is the foundation for all of the supply chain visibility and digital freight revolution that we are witnessing today,” said Pradeep P. Kumar, President & CEO, Fleetilla. “In order to connect the dots seamlessly, equipment and freight (particularly LTL) need to be tracked on the road, as well as at the factory and the warehouse. Polte's breakthrough location technologies, coupled with Fleetilla's nearly two decades expertise in design and deployment of long-life, wide area outdoor location solutions, will allow us to now offer seamless end-to-end supply chain and equipment visibility - indoors and outdoors.”

Polte’s C-LoC solution uses available 4G and 5G signals and cloud-based machine learning to enable highly accurate location indoors and outdoors, and with this new partnership, Polte's algorithms offload location calculations from the device and compute them in the cloud instead, with the goal of reducing time-to-market outperforming other cellular location solutions available in the market.

“We are excited to collaborate with Fleetilla to bring visibility to their customer's assets not previously possible,” said Ed Chao, CEO, Polte. “Our software-only solution enables Fleetilla to rapidly get to market since it does not require changes to existing hardware designs. In addition to accurate indoor and outdoor positioning, this collaboration brings an added level of value to their customers through improved battery life and added security. Chao continued, "Polte's solution brings additional functionality to their already impressive lineup of fleet tracking devices.”
