Titanium Transportation Group Goes All In with BlackBerry Radar
WATERLOO, ONTARIO and BOLTON, ONTARIO--(Sept. 28, 2017) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) and Titanium Transportation Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TTR) announced today that Titanium has started deploying Radar-L across its fleet of flatbeds. With the addition of Radar-L, BlackBerry's new asset and fleet tracking solution, designed for rapid installation on flatbeds, chassis, containers, heavy machinery, and other valuable transportation or non-powered assets, Titanium's entire fleet now utilizes the BlackBerry Radar platform.
This agreement builds upon Titanium's first deal with BlackBerry, which was signed in December 2016 and included the use of Radar-M devices on approximately 1,200 trailers.
"We like to say that we take a "youthful" approach to an "old" industry. We embrace technology and welcome a modern trailer tracking solution to boost efficiencies and increase our fleet utilization," said Ted Daniel, CEO of Titanium. "We have already seen significant business benefits with our current implementation of BlackBerry Radar, and expect to see bigger improvements in fleet utilization and operational efficiencies now that our entire fleet is on the BlackBerry Radar platform."
"Titanium is an innovative transportation company that recognizes how connected devices and the data they generate can help transform businesses," said Philip Poulidis, SVP and GM of Radar, BlackBerry. "Titanium was an early adopter of our BlackBerry Radar solution, and we are privileged that they have entrusted their entire fleet of trailers and commercial vehicles to the BlackBerry Radar portfolio."
BlackBerry Radar provides real-time information such as load status, temperature, humidity and pressure information, among many other data points, on a single intuitive on-line dashboard. It collects up to 100x more data than conventional GPS-based track and trace solutions, and uses this information to build simple to understand and powerful interactive reports designed specifically for managing fleet. All data is stored securely on a cloud platform, which maintains the privacy of the user information at all times.
