Our telematics solutions enable Gulick to protect and improve the delivery of their on-board cargo, while optimizing asset utilization and efficiency of their operations throughout the supply chain.”
In addition to helping the organization track its freight while mobile, the systems also provide Gulick with temperature monitoring/control capabilities, logistics services, and fuel management assistance. ORBCOMM’s telematics solutions are designed to integrate with the TMW dispatch software platform, allowing for easy reading and control through a single system.
Gulick management believes that the increased visibility will provide them with the advantages they need to take their organization to the next level. With additional data, the company can manage assets more effectively and cut operational costs. This in turn will make it easier for them to provide a better experience for their customers.
