BlackBerry Limited and Fleet Complete announced an expansion of their partnership with the purchase of BlackBerry Radar-M devices for BigRoad – A Fleet Complete Company.
The addition of BlackBerry Radar will strengthen the company’s new BigRoad Freight program, which gives owner-operators and fleets the ability to book the loads they want while ensuring quick payment and providing hours-of-service (HOS) visibility from within the BigRoad Mobile App electronic logbook.
“With BlackBerry Radar, BigRoad users will immediately see the benefits that come from unparalleled visibility into their cargo and mobile fleet assets,” said Philip Poulidis, SVP and GM of BlackBerry Radar. “Radar-M provides up-to-date information on a trailer’s available capacity and location so that drivers are able to know exactly when and where they are able to take on more loads.”
“Fleet Complete and BigRoad are committed to finding innovative ways to help drivers save time, comply with government regulations, and more importantly, make more money,” said Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete. “We’re excited to expand our relationship with BlackBerry and increase the power and potential of the BigRoad Freight program with BlackBerry Radar.”
BigRoad Freight empowers drivers to book the loads they want, when they want, 24/7 from within the BigRoad Mobile App on the phone or tablet. By leveraging real-time location information and a unique compliance availability dataset, shippers and carriers benefit from improved schedule predictability and asset optimization.
The Radar-M devices will provide BigRoad’s customers with visibility into the available load capacity of its trailers, which will then enable the platform to match drivers with additional shipments along their route.
BlackBerry Radar is an innovative, easy-to-install and data-driven solution that provides near real-time information such as vehicle location, route and mileage, temperature, humidity, door status, and cargo load state on a single intuitive online dashboard.
It collects up to 100x more data than conventional GPS-based track and trace solutions, and uses this information to build a 360-degree visualization of a customer’s assets to ensure safety, security, and regulatory compliance. All data is stored securely on a cloud platform, which maintains the privacy of user information at all times.
