On September 19, 2017, Omnitracs announced that BCTA member Shaw Tracking is now part of its comprehensive product and service portfolio.

Shaw Tracking has been the exclusive Canadian partner of Omnitracs fleet management solutions for more than 25 years. The company distributed a wide range of world-class solutions, including GPS vehicle tracking products, fleet management software and other value-added software applications, which will now be integrated into the broader Omnitracs’ product solutions portfolio.

“Finalizing the acquisition of the assets of Shaw Tracking is a milestone accomplishment for Omnitracs, and represents a significant opportunity for the transportation industry to continue to transform itself through technology,” said John Graham, Chief Executive Officer, Omnitracs. “Our goal is to bring the best technology solutions to transportation and logistics companies, and expanding our presence into the Canadian market furthers this initiative.”

Omnitracs has been a leading provider of fleet management solutions in the US for nearly 30 years. Combining the companies will further extend the global footprint and expertise needed to Canadian transportation and logistics companies, while providing trusted support in preparation for new government regulations, including ELD mandates.

“We’re dedicated to helping carriers throughout this country transition to electronic logging devices, assure regulatory compliance, and most importantly, run more profitable fleets,” said Mike Ham, Vice-President and General Manager of Omnitracs Canada. “Shaw Tracking developed a strong customer network, and we’re committed to continuing to deliver premier solutions and services to this market.”

“We look forward to continuing our unwavering support of the Canadian trucking industry through each of the provincial associations, the Canadian Trucking Alliance and the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada,” said Steven Atnikov, Director of Sales.

Shaw Tracking joined BCTA as an associate member in 1999, and we’re honoured to have Omnitracs continue the relationship and Shaw’s generous support for our industry. Visit omnitracs.com for company details. We look forward to serving you. Congratulations!
