South Carolina Ports Chooses Phillips Connect as Telematics Provider for New Chassis Pool

Irvine, CA (Aug. 9, 2022) – South Carolina Ports has chosen Phillips Connect as its telematics provider for its new port-owned and port-operated SMART Pool™ chassis fleet.

SC Ports will use Phillips Connect’s StealthNet™ GPS tracking technology on its SMART Pool™ chassis fleet to maximize efficiencies and gain insight into its supply chain. StealthNet monitors chassis for location, mileage, and power usage.

“SC Ports is launching its SMART Pool to enhance the reliability, safety, quality and availability of chassis equipment to support supply chain fluidity,” SC Ports CEO Barbara Melvin said. “We are excited to utilize Phillips Connect’s GPS technology to optimize the performance of our new SMART Pool. The enhanced visibility it provides will further support the efficient movement of cargo.”

StealthNet is a sturdy, waterproof, high-performance tracking gateway that installs in 10 minutes or less, with two charging options and a 10-year rechargeable battery capable of operating without recharge for up to six months.

“After reviewing several vendors, we felt very confident partnering with Phillips Connect for our new SMART Pool,” SC Ports’ Chassis Pool Director James Caudill said. “We were impressed with the quality, capability and reliability of its technology. The quick installation is beneficial to operations, and the fleet visibility will help maintain fluidity in the supply chain.”

“The StealthNet solution SC Ports has chosen for its new chassis pool will have very robust capabilities out of the gate, but also has great potential to grow with them,” said Phillips Connect’s Director of Sales Engineering, Cliff Creech. “Phillips Connect is proud to have been chosen as SC Ports’ telematics provider for its new chassis pool.”
