Blackberry Radar to drive higher profits for trucking industry

At the 2016 Mid-America Trucking Show, BlackBerry unveiled BlackBerry Radar, a new end-to-end asset tracking system for trucking companies and private fleet operators. With BlackBerry Radar customers can optimise utilisation of their trailers and shipping containers, improve on-time delivery, reduce theft and generate more revenue from each trailer, without having to invest in costly IT infrastructure. BlackBerry Radar provides everything needed to track highly mobile assets, including a self-powered tracking device, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform with cloud based applications, world-class security and visual reports that make it easy to pinpoint the location and status of each asset.

The BlackBerry Radar tracking device takes only minutes to install and generates rich, frequently updated information that enables operations managers, load planners and dispatchers to make the most profitable decisions for their organisations. For example, the device can send real-time alerts whenever a trailer has crossed a user-defined geofence, or when a trailer door has opened or closed. It also monitors GPS location, temperature, humidity and the presence of cargo. To access this data, customers simply log into BlackBerry Radar’s secure online portal—from there, they can interact with elegant visualisations and one-click reports that show where their assets are, and what is happening to them.

BlackBerry Radar also provides an extensible architecture and rich application programming interfaces (APIs) to help developers create innovative applications.
