Cartrack has selected ORBCOMM to provide satellite data communication services to extend its current range of GSM logistics and telematics solutions. Cartrack will distribute the high-performance fleet management solution throughout the African continent via its growing brand and dealer network.

Cartrack, a leading vehicle tracking and logistics company based in Johannesburg, South Africa, will use ORBCOMM's global satellite network to track and monitor the location, routes and status of its vehicles in near-real-time.

By integrating ORBCOMM's global satellite communications service into its telematics solution, Cartrack will helps its customers gain significant operating advantages and cost savings through an enhanced coverage footprint and improved visibility and security over their assets even in the most remote areas of the African continent outside of typical GSM coverage.

"Cartrack's agreement with ORBCOMM further demonstrates our commitment to the African market and our industry leadership as the top choice for wireless M2M services," said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM's Senior Vice President of International.

"With the growing importance of cost-effective, reliable connectivity in powering M2M applications, ORBCOMM will play a pivotal role in the successful implementation of Cartrack's telematics solution. In addition, ORBCOMM's recent installation of key ground infrastructure in South Africa will provide even greater network availability and geographic coverage for the Sub-Saharan countries."

"Cartrack's vehicle telematics services require a high standard of performance, quality and geographic reach, and ORBCOMM meets this need with ubiquitous global coverage, reliability and integrated M2M services," said John Edmeston, Cartrack's Managing Director.

"We are very pleased with the positive response from our dealer network, which is very excited to offer our cost-effective tracking and monitoring applications to the African market."

ORBCOMM and Cartrack will market their joint telematics solution at Satcom Africa 2013, which is being held in Johannesburg, South Africa from May 28-29.

A subsidiary of Onecell Holdings, Cartrack is a GSM technology-driven vehicle telematics, communication, and stolen vehicle recovery business unit, servicing more than 330,000 vehicles worldwide, and over 200,000 vehicles within South Africa.
