3,825

BlackBerry and Matson Logistics announced today that the company has deployed BlackBerry Radar-M across its entire fleet of its domestic intermodal containers.

The BlackBerry Radar asset monitoring solution will provide Matson Logistics with near real-time information such as location, motion, mileage, temperature, humidity, door open/close status, and utilised cube space, all on an intuitive on-line dashboard.

The devices collect up to 100x more data than conventional GPS-based track and trace solutions while installation takes less than 10-minutes. With a premium battery that has three times the energy capacity of many competitive solutions, the solution is reliable and long-lasting, requires no recharging and is virtually maintenance free.

Matson Logistics also affixed ‘Powered by BlackBerry Radar’ decals on the doors of each container, highlighting some of the solution’s benefits that will provide enhanced visibility to their assets for both their operations and their customers.

The deployment marks the first time that a BlackBerry Radar customer has visibly branded their assets to let people know that they use the smart, IoT-based monitoring tool to improve fleet utilization and operational efficiency.

“Before we chose BlackBerry Radar for our containers, we tested several products,” said Keith Crenshaw, AVP, Procurement & Pricing, Matson Logistics.

“BlackBerry Radar proved both reliable and easy to integrate with our systems, with the added benefit of having a small profile when installed on the containers. The data tell us precise container location, whether the container is loaded or empty, and also generates notifications when the doors open or close.”

Christopher Plaat, SVP and GM, BlackBerry Radar, BlackBerry added,

“We’re proud that Matson Logistics, known for its service excellence, has selected BlackBerry Radar as its asset monitoring solution,””BlackBerry Radar is a secure, reliable, and easy-to-implement solution that provides fleet operators with data-driven insights into their cargo and mobile assets, enabling business owners to make smarter decisions.”
