New Delhi [India], Dec 20 (ANI): BlackBerry Limited and Fleet Complete on Wednesday announced expansion of their partnership with the purchase of BlackBerry Radar-M devices for BigRoad - A Fleet Complete Company.

The addition of BlackBerry Radar will strengthen the company's new BigRoad Freight program, which gives owner-operators and fleets the ability to book the loads they want while ensuring quick payment and providing hours-of-service (HOS) visibility from within the BigRoad Mobile App electronic logbook.

"With BlackBerry Radar, BigRoad users will immediately see the benefits that come from unparalleled visibility into their cargo and mobile fleet assets. Radar-M provides up-to-date information on a trailer's available capacity and location so that drivers are able to know exactly when and where they are able to take on more loads," said Philip Poulidis, SVP and GM of BlackBerry Radar.

"We're excited to expand our relationship with BlackBerry and increase the power and potential of the BigRoad Freight program with BlackBerry Radar," added Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete.

BigRoad Freight empowers drivers to book the loads they want, when they want, 24/7 from within the BigRoad Mobile App on the phone or tablet. By leveraging real-time location information and a unique compliance availability dataset, shippers and carriers benefit from improved schedule predictability and asset optimisation.

The Radar-M devices will provide BigRoad's customers with visibility into the available load capacity of its trailers, which will then enable the platform to match drivers with additional shipments along their route.

On a related note, BlackBerry Radar is a vdata-driven solution that provides near real-time information such as vehicle location, route and mileage, temperature, humidity, door status, and cargo load state on a single intuitive on-line dashboard.

It collects up to 100 times more data than conventional GPS-based track and trace solutions, and uses this information to build a 360-degree visualisation of a customer's assets to ensure safety, security, and regulatory compliance.

All data is stored securely on a cloud platform, thus retaining the privacy of user information at all times. (ANI)
