The Telit HE910 cellular module and Jupiter JF2 positioning module combine to drive operational savings and reduce product loss.

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services, announced that Road King Technologies, a fleet management & automation company focused on the Ready Mix concrete industry, has integrated Telit HE910 and JF2 modules in its RK3000 tracking units to enable its unique Trac18 GPS service.

“Road King’s service is an ideal example of how M2M technology can transform business”


Surprisingly, delivery of concrete is subject to limitations most fleets don’t have to face. Once a truck is loaded, severe time restrictions make route optimization absolutely critical. Moreover, to prevent hardening, mixer trucks have more moving parts than most fleet vehicles – meaning more parts to maintain in proper working order. These issues atop the shared fleet management concerns of safety, driver behavior, fuel optimization, etc., drove Road King to select Telit’s modules to enable both location and wide area connectivity for its customers. Using the RK3000 to monitor each mixer, Road King provides an easy-to-use suite of cloud-based data collection, visualization and data archiving tools to provide unparalleled insight to this unique group of fleet managers. As a result, customers are saving as many as 8 trucks [loads? trips?] per day, not to mention protecting themselves from frivolous lawsuits, improving driver reliability across their organizations and increasing their efficiency extensively.

“The Telit HE910 cellular module helps us deliver critical fleet data to the cloud and provides an easy upgrade and expansion path to grow our business, while the JF2 gives us accurate location data at very tight intervals,” said Harry Marks, President of Road King. “As a result, we’re able to give our customers a competitive edge with unparalleled insight into their vehicles, water usage, quantity control, dispatch wait times and more.”

“Road King’s service is an ideal example of how M2M technology can transform business,” said Mike Ueland, President of Telit Americas. “Not only have they achieved an outstanding, purpose-built solution for concrete logistics, they continue to uncover hidden values from the data they collect – whether that’s identifying underperforming or noncompliant drivers or protecting their clients against legal claims.”
