Our solution for tracking the location of non-vehicular assets, such as trailers or equipment will be able to reduce the costs involved with lost equipment and trailers. We are proud to be able to deliver high quality service and products in the fleet industry.”

“The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be the fastest-growing of our international awards programs,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The sheer number of nominations is matched by the increasing quality of those nominations.
