Press release date: November 10, 2016
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 10, 2016 - Amerijet International, Inc. announced today that it has approved Starcom Systems Kylos Air GPS Tracking Device for Air Cargo use aboard its Aircraft. Amerijet, with offices in 78 countries and moving more than 300 million pounds per year has identified the need for the latest in tracking technology to better serve its shipping clientele. Starcom Systems Americas, LLC, a fully owned subsidiary of Starcom PLC (STAR:L) designs and manufactures a variety of GPS based tracking devices that are battery operated or direct wire applications for vehicles.
"Being able to know exactly where cargo is, and being able to track or monitor it on your smartphone, desktop or via your own tracking platform is critical to the next generation of services we intend to provide," said Pamela Rollins, Senior V.P. Business Development. "Starcom Systems latest development with the Kylos Air allows for close monitoring of high value air cargo, temperature sensitive products and equipment. The units go into "Airplane Mode" while in the air, but communicate the moment they exit the aircraft, helping minimize the ramp time of sensitive cargo," stated Rollins.
