Tankstar USA Inc., Adopts SkyBitz for Increased Accuracy and Efficiencies

STERLING, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkyBitz®, the leader in remote asset tracking and management, today announced that Tankstar USA Inc., an industry leader for cost-effective liquid and dry bulk transportation for long-haul, short haul and just-in-time operations, has chosen SkyBitz as their tracking solution for their company fleets.

“Previously, we’d tried several other products for tracking but they just didn’t have the total solution we needed. SkyBitz answered that need”

Tankstar USA companies selected the SkyBitz Falcon Series GXT1000 to track its fleet of tanks that service the cement industry in order to gain better visibility. The result is improved asset allocation, logistics and security for their customers. Tankstar USA company operators can view near-real time location information and run customizable management and operational reports for each tank in the fleet through the SkyBitz InSight Web service. SkyBitz Insight allows for automated alerts through the use of SkyBitz Sky Fences, which outline customized geo-perimeters around customer landmarks. Tankstar USA can now see its company fleet’s daily entire chain of events - from the arrival and departure from customer sites to all events occurring in between.

“Previously, we’d tried several other products for tracking but they just didn’t have the total solution we needed. SkyBitz answered that need,” said Jack Schwerman, President of Tankstar USA. “In the ready-mix concrete industry, the loads are time-sensitive and need to be moved quickly. After testing an initial set of mobile terminals with our tank equipment, we plan to expand this to our other equipment. Since 1913, Tankstar companies have always looked for ways to differentiate ourselves by offering innovative solutions to problems and using the latest technologies to better serve our customers.”

“In one of our new verticals of focus, the construction industry, timing of shipments is critical and SkyBitz provides a supply chain logistics solution that allows our customers to improve margins but also be better partners with their clients,” said Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President of Sales. “By deploying SkyBitz solutions, Tankstar USA companies can be more effective with their dispatch operations and thus be a better partner to their customers through the sharing of critical information that plays a key role in load planning.”

The SkyBitz Falcon Series GXT1000 operates on a terrestrial GSM network and is an extremely durable and multifunctional device ideal for security and management of high value assets in rugged high integrity applications. Its customizable features capture the exact data needed for customers to monitor stop and idle time, mileage driven, arrival/departure timing and sky-fence adherence.
