Solutions for Transportation & Logistics
Network Innovations’ suite of satellite communications solutions for voice and data ensure reliable communications for transport and logistics business operations; resulting in cost savings, faster operational results and improved safety.
Tracking – Our tracking solutions provide GPS information on the time intervals that you require. Helping your route scheduling, providing data for your fleet management reporting, enabling you to define geo-fences to identify things gone astray and giving you operational data on vessels or vehicles for speed, mileage, compartment open, door unlocked, seat-belt off, trailer disconnected or other telematics information that you want to monitor.
For your valuable cargo and containers, satellite tracking will enable you to identify the location of empty and full containers using location and sensor data to avoid having containers sit idle. You can prevent cargo theft and ensure the safety of goods by collecting data from door, cargo, and tire pressure sensors. Track the location of your container or trailer in the event of a theft by leveraging GPS location information. Deliver valuable shipment location information to your customers to support just-in-time operations.
For your railway cars, you’ll be able to quickly find and deploy idle railcars using GPS information to reduce dwell times and ensure full utilization of a rail wagon fleet. Calculate stop times at rail stations and border crossings using geofencing capabilities. Receive alerts when railcars enter or leave rail yards, border crossings and other points-of-interest by leveraging GPS and geofencing capabilities. Track unusual or unscheduled stops using the GPS accelerometer inside the satellite terminal, which can notify rail fleet managers when a wagon starts or stops. Control rail cargo and temperature sensors, and receive notifications of excessive impacts from over-speed coupling.
Dispatch Communications: Telephone & Push-to-Talk – Depending where you operate on land or at sea, you’ll likely encounter times when your travels take you outside of cellular services or the range of your 2-way radio network. Network Innovations provides satellite telephone systems in multiple formats: portable handhelds, in-vehicle fixed phones or docking kits, and maritime phones for life at sea. If it’s push-to-talk radio that you require for dispatch operations, then we can extend the range of your 2-way radio network across your operating region, on a global basis. Our SATRAD Matrix products also provide simple integration of satellite push-to-talk with your existing UHF/VHF radios, repeaters and dispatch console systems.
