"ORBCOMM's telematics system will enable John Christner to take their refrigerated trailer operations to a whole new level of efficiency and see an immediate return on investment (ROI)," said David Gsell, General Manager of StarTrak.

"As we continue to see more broad adoption of telematics in the transportation and distribution industry, we are excited about the impact ORBCOMM's powerful solutions are having on trucking companies in a diversity of market segments."
