ContainerPort Group Selects VeriWise™ Track & Trace System to Manage Container Chassis

Asset Intelligence, a leading provider of supply chain asset tracking solutions and a subsidiary of I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDSY), announced that its VeriWise™ Track & Trace system has been purchased by ContainerPort Group (CPG), a leading provider of cargo transportation services. CPG will deploy the system on a fleet of container chassis for an initial contract term of five years.

VeriWise Track & Trace is an easy-to-deploy asset tracking system that provides real-time data to improve the utilization, efficiency, and security of trailer and container fleets. It is designed for quick, flexible installation on a wide range of cargo-carrying assets, with patented power management technology to provide exceptionally long battery life and years of maintenance-free operation.

CPG, based in Cleveland, Ohio, provides a service network of approximately 20 facilities across the Midwest and East Coast of the United States. The company’s intermodal cargo transportation services include containerized freight shipping, cargo terminal operations, rail operations, container and chassis maintenance, and warehousing and logistics.

“ContainerPort Group chose VeriWise Track & Trace for its value, ease of installation, and reliability,” said CPG President Richard Coleman. “With our recent acquisition of another container management business, it became essential for us to optimize the control and efficient utilization of our expanding fleet of cargo-carrying assets. We needed a system that could be mounted quickly in an unobtrusive location on our chassis, yet could still communicate reliably, without relying on line-of-sight connectivity to a satellite.

“We tested several other solutions and concluded that VeriWise Track & Trace was the most robust solution available, with a unique covert mounting option, essentially maintenance-free life cycle, and reliable cellular communications. We expect the system will provide us with immediate real-time visibility of our assets, even when they are in remote customer facilities or rail yards, and significantly increase the utilization of our chassis fleet.”
“We are very pleased to add ContainerPort Group to our base of successful customers,” said Darryl Miller, Chief Operating Officer of I.D. Systems. “VeriWise Track & Trace is an ideal solution for CPG’s application—it’s an affordable, simple, effective system for basic asset tracking that can quickly drive cost and inefficiency out of container fleet operations.”
