Canadian firm BlackBerry has unveiled BlackBerry Radar, a new end-to-end asset tracking system for trucking companies and private fleet operators.

With BlackBerry Radar, customers can optimise utilisation of their trailers and shipping containers, improve on-time delivery, reduce theft, and generate more revenue from each trailer, without having to invest in costly IT infrastructure, BlackBerry said in a statement.

The solution also encrypts all transmitted data, authenticates the device and cloud endpoints to ensure a high level of security and privacy between users and the service.

Select trucking companies and private fleet operators are currently participating in a customer pilot programme and the solution is scheduled for general availability later this year, it added.
