Motorcity Systems and Orbcomm Inc. have formed a technology integration partnership to better connect Orbcomm’s truck and trailer telematics systems with various transportation management systems used by motor carriers.
Motorcity’s Torque integration network, a cloud-based middleware platform, connects with multiple TMS products to streamline integrations with other technologies and systems.
Orbcomm’s partnership with Motorcity will make it easier for fleets to access in-cab and equipment information from Orbcomm directly in their native operating systems, the companies said in a joint announcement.
