Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, UNITED STATES


WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., June 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PowerFleet, Inc. (Nasdaq: PWFL), a global leader and provider of subscription-based wireless IoT and M2M solutions for securing, controlling, tracking, and managing high-value enterprise assets such as industrial trucks, tractor trailers, containers, cargo, cars, and light and heavy duty truck fleets, has been selected by Rusken Packaging to outfit its private fleet with the PowerFleet LV-500 solar tracking solution and the PowerFleet LV-710 Freight Camera.

The Alabama-based company will utilize PowerFleet’s LV-500 solar tracking solution coupled with the LV-710 Freight Camera to help maintain visibility of location and load status for its full fleet of trailers with deliveries starting in June of 2020. PowerFleet’s leading logistics solutions will better enable Rusken to eliminate manual yard checks and improve operating efficiencies through its powerful IQ analytics portal with robust utilization reporting.

“The past few months have proven that now, more than ever, transparency and efficiency are the best defense against supply chain vulnerabilities,” said Jeff Bowman, Corporate Logistics Director of Rusken Packaging. “PowerFleet’s reliable, next generation solutions give us the confidence that we are future proofing our business and ensuring we’re always able to deliver the best quality of service to our customers. We look forward to using the cutting-edge PowerFleet technology to ensure optimal asset utilization throughout our organization.”

The PowerFleet LV-500 is the industry’s first multi-powered asset tracking solution, leveraging solar panels, supercapacitors and long-lasting primary batteries for unmatched service life and critical event visibility. The LV-500 combines advanced wireless sensor technology, a cloud-based application, and analytics to increase turns, utilization and profit.

This solution will be deployed in conjunction with the PowerFleet LV-710, which combines a high-definition camera, image recognition processor, door sensor and ‘cargo-area’ environmental sensors for true freight visibility and condition. The pairing of these two solutions will offer Rusken Packaging greater insight and quality control through the supply chain with imagery, environmental sensors, and real-time updates.

“Rusken’s strong growth over the last decade is testament to a clear focus on their products, customers and staff,” explains PowerFleet Chief Product Officer, Elizabeth Elkins. “We are thrilled that PowerFleet’s technology is a cornerstone in Rusken’s innovative approach to drive continuous visibility and top-quality service in their customer focused regional transit model.”
