Plano, Texas, January 11, 2005 - Terion, the leading provider of trailer fleet management systems with over 80,000 devices installed, today announced the launch of FleetView 3F - its trailer management system specifically designed for flatbed trailers. FleetView 3F combines the latest digital wireless and GPS technologies with Terion's robust web-based application designed specifically for operation on a flatbed trailer.
The Smarter Flatbed Trailer Management Solution
? FleetView 3F is designed to perform in the harshest environments, exceeding the stringent SAE-1455 and NEMA 4 independent standards.
? FleetView 3F installs underneath the bed, allowing installation when the trailer is loaded and never interfering with a load.
? The system supports full over-the-air system upgrades and enhancements, eliminating the expense of taking trailers off the road to manually upgrade the unit.
? FleetView 3F utilizes the CDMA digital wireless network, intelligently switching from 1XRTT, SMS, circuit switched digital service and AMPS cellular. The result is the most powerful ubiquitous digital network capable of economically and efficiently delivering significant amounts of data.
"Terion's FleetView 3 technology platform allows for installation on several trailer types, including dry vans, refrigerated trailers, and now flatbeds," said Ken Cranston, President and CEO of Terion. "Flatbed carriers now have access to the most advanced trailer tracking system on the market with FleetView 3F - the same system used to manage over 80,000 dry vans and reefers today."
