The world’s population is growing. Urbanisation is accelerating. The demand for goods and services is exploding, transforming the way global supply chains function. This puts pressure on the transport industry to optimise its operations to satisfy a heightening demand, while improving sustainability and ensuring worker safety along the way, no matter where they are. Does this sound like an impossible task? We don’t think so.

Working across rail, multi-modal logistics and freight, we are supporting the transport sector’s ability to harness technology to transform the way you work, no matter where you are located in the global supply chain. Whether it is delivering supply chain transparency and improving operational efficiencies across South America or enhancing worker and passenger safety in Australia, our bespoke connectivity services and solutions have got you covered.

Optimising rail operations

Managing an expansive rail network is in no way a simple task. Whether it is optimising network capacity or keeping crews safe, challenges arise daily. Yet, a lack of terrestrial coverage hampers the visibility you have over your networks, compromising your ability to deploy technologies that can help you transport cargo efficiently, safely and sustainably. Don’t worry, we have the services and solutions to help you change this.

With the support of our global partners, we can provide you with ultra-reliable telematics, control and communications solutions anywhere globally. Do you want to be able to track and communicate with your trains wherever they are? Do you want the tools to monitor weather-susceptible remote rail environments to reduce network downtime? Are you struggling to stay connected with remote maintenance crews? Or perhaps you even want to automate your train operation? With our satellite-enabled connectivity, you can improve the efficiency, safety and sustainability of your rail operations and harness the benefits of technology, no matter where you are operating.


Having visibility of your fleet is key to optimising your operations. We know that the greater awareness you have over vehicle locations and the health and status of drivers and cargo, the easier it is to optimise your operations and keep your staff safe. But in order to have continuous visibility over your fleet, you need reliable connectivity. That’s where we come in.

Our satellite services make telemetry data such as location, speed and engine diagnostics always available to you and your control centre operators, no matter where your networks are. This gives you the tools you need to effectively manage diverse fleets of vehicles wherever they are in the world, ensuring drivers are safe and cargo is delivered on time. Why not take charge of your fleets today and access real-time telemetry data with satellite-enabled connectivity?
