(Nasdaq: PWFL), a global leader and provider of subscription-based wireless IoT and M2M solutions for securing, controlling, tracking, and managing high-value enterprise assets, announced it will be outfitting a large portion of the full Day & Ross trailer fleet with PowerFleet’s LV-500 solar tracking solution and the PowerFleet LV-710 Freight Camera.
As one of the largest transportation companies in Canada, with more than 8,000 employees, drivers, and owner operators, Day & Ross has grown to be a critical player in transportation and logistics in North America.

“After extensive review, we selected PowerFleet’s LV-500 solar platform and their LV-710 freight camera because it was the most advanced technology in the market, they are easy to deploy, and easy to use,” explained Matt Trites, Director, Maintenance, Day & Ross. “We now obtain literal visibility into how our equipment is utilized and how the freight is loaded and handled.”
The PowerFleet LV-500 is the industry’s first multi-powered asset tracking solution, leveraging solar panels, supercapacitors and long-lasting primary batteries for unmatched service life and critical event visibility. The PowerFleet LV-710 combines a high-definition camera, image recognition processor, door sensor and ‘cargo-area’ environmental sensors for true freight visibility and condition, and it also provides accurate visual proof of the empty and loaded status of trailers, trailer cube utilization and aids in more accurate customer billing.
