See how a regional contract carrier of dry goods, Swing Transport, adopted ORBCOMM’s trailer tracking solution for improved fleet visibility, better operational efficiency and reduced theft…

Swing Transport is a full-service provider of transportation and logistics services based in Salisbury, North Carolina. The company operates a fleet of approximately 1200 dry trailers across the southeastern states, and specializes in service-intensive, time-sensitive freight with 80% of loads requiring on-time pick-up and delivery services. For Swing, maintaining outstanding customer service and improving operational efficiency are two of its main priorities.

The carrier needed a comprehensive trailer tracking system that would deliver 24/7 visibility of assets in order to minimize unauthorized trailer use, improve service delivery and reduce theft. “This was our first foray into this type of system,” recalled Gamewell, Director of Operations at Swing Transport. “We had seen the value of a tracking system on some of our leased trucks, so we chose to work with ORBCOMM to help us implement a solution that would provide the same level of value for the rest of our fleet.”
