With SkyBitz trailer tracking, Mckinney Trailer Rentals will receive best-in-class tracking solutions for improved asset allocation, total load visibility and enhanced logistics and security. “Our customers are requesting trailer tracking more now than they did a year ago,” said Richard Swenson, Corporate Operations Manager. “Once we determined we needed additional trailer tracking units, we evaluated all of the remote asset management solutions available in the market today. This process confirmed our reasons for choosing SkyBitz with their industry expertise and flexibility of their solution.”
In the trailer market, most companies do not have possession of their trailers and do not manage the vehicles. SkyBitz helps trailer rental and leasing companies to better utilize and service their equipment to meet customer demand through increased visibility. For Mckinney Trailer Rentals, Skybitz has also been able to help with increased security through geofencing and tracking via motion sensors.
Mckinney’s recent purchase of 56 new Thermo King PrecedentTM S-600 trailer units with TracKingTM telematics and SVC Termo GardTM enables them to provide incredible new refrigeration technology to their customers. “To stay competitive in the transportation industry, we strive to provide the products and technologies that will help protect our customers from costly repair expenses and damaging downtime,” said Casey Sherman, Operations Manager at Mckinney. “Thermo King’s new Precedent technology is incredible, setting a new standard in transport refrigeration. The TracKing telematics system gives our customers more flexibility in this very competitive and cost sensitive business. It will allow real-time monitoring of the trailer and refrigeration unit sparing our customers the inconvenience of manually tracking their units.”
“We appreciate Mckinney Trailers’ business and partnership,” said Brandon Pugh, Thermo King Northwest owner. “They are a company focused on prompt and value-added service. When it comes to the reefer side of their business, they depend on Thermo King products and services to deliver. We are proud to partner with them and of their belief in Thermo King.”
