Fleetilla, Polte Collaborate to Extend Supply Chain and Equipment Visibility via IoT

Fleetilla, a provider of asset-tracking, fleet-management and related Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and Polte Corp., a supplier of cloud-location-over-cellular (C-LoC) technologies, have announced a collaboration to integrate Polte's location technologies into Fleetilla's asset-tracking and freight-visibility solutions.

Fleetilla develops battery-powered asset-management solutions designed to work in challenging environments. Its FL950 series hardware, along with its cloud-based asset-management application and application programming interfaces (APIs), can manage semi-trailers, rail wagons, land-based inter-modal containers, rental equipment and other assets. With the addition of Polte's location technology, which offers indoor and outdoor tracking, Fleetilla will be able to offer freight and equipment visibility across a supply chain. Polte's C-LoC solution leverages available 4G and 5G signals and cloud-based machine learning to enable accurate locationing. Its patented algorithms offload location calculations from the device and instead compute them in the cloud.

"Location is the foundation for all of the supply chain visibility and digital freight revolution that we are witnessing today," said Pradeep P. Kumar, Fleetilla's president and CEO, in a prepared statement. "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."

"We are excited to collaborate with Fleetilla to bring visibility to their customer's assets not previously possible," added Ed Chao, Polte's CEO, in the prepared statement. "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. Polte's solution brings additional functionality to their already impressive lineup of fleet tracking devices."
