SUNNYVALE, CA – Trimble announced on February 28 that its subsidiary, Trimble Mobile Solutions, Inc. (TMS), has signed a memorandum of understanding to form a distribution alliance with AmeriQuest Transportation and Logistics Resources Corporation.The companies will offer low-cost asset tracking and security solutions using Trimble’s TrimTrac locator. The TrimTrac locator, based on Global Positioning System (GPS) and cellular communications, is a palm-sized, battery operated device that enables fleet operators to locate cargo, trailers, heavy equipment, and other high value assets via the Internet.“The TrimTrac locator is easy to install, with no wires or external antennas,” commented Eric White, Business Development Manager for Trimble Mobile Solutions. TrimTrac’s enhanced GPS sensitivity and compact size make it ideal for discrete placement in vehicles or cargo. The TrimTrac locator supports 900 positions using four AA batteries or an external 12 volt source.”TMS and AmeriQuest intend to offer multiple service plans designed to enable asset management for a variety of fleet and transportation organizations. The solution is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2005.
