BlackBerry Limited caught the attention of those in the trucking and shipping industry at the Mid-American Trucking Show, with the reveal of its latest devise, the BlackBerry Radar. While not available until sometime this summer, the BlackBerry Radar has already received a positive response. The new system is designed to track trailers and shipping containers with unparalleled ease and accuracy.
The new BlackBerry Radar is a cloud-based application built on an Internet of Things (IoT) platform. This provides real-time tracking of trailers and shipping containers from practically any location in the world. Fleet managers, trucking companies, and other businesses in the shipping industry will be able to access this real-time date on any computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone that is equipped with a web browser.
One of the best features of the BlackBerry Radar is its superior security features. Not only will this new application give owners and managers the ability to track the exact location of their entire fleet, but it will also provide continuous monitoring of their vital assets. In fact, the BlackBerry Radar is so sophisticated that monitors will be able to track the actual, real-time condition of the trailer or container. This increased security will help companies greatly reduce the risk of equipment theft.
It is designed to work as a cost-effective tool for those in the shipping industry because it does not require companies to purchase a new, costly infrastructure. The device is easy to install and will be ready to provide accurate data within just minutes. Instant status reports allow fleet managers and private owners to make real-time decisions that are in the best interest of their business.
The combination of features offered by the BlackBerry Radar will help those in the shipping industry optimize productivity, improve delivery times and status, reduce equipment theft, and ultimately boost profits. Even though the BlackBerry Radar is still in the pilot testing phase, it is sure to gain traction once it officially enters the market.
