ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, today announced its StarTrak division has been selected by John
Christner Trucking, LLC (John Christner) to provide an industry-leading
two-way tracking and monitoring solution for its nationwide fleet of

Based in Sapulpa, OK, John Christner will use ORBCOMM’s RT6000+, a powerful
two-way reefer telematics device developed by StarTrak that provides
comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical
applications services for its temperature-controlled cargo. ORBCOMM will also

back-office platform to gain significant fuel savings, optimize temperature
compliance and increase responsiveness and customer satisfaction, which will
contribute directly to their bottom line.

“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.”

“We evaluated several solution providers and selected ORBCOMM’s telematics
system for its dynamic data reporting capabilities and proven industry
success,” said John Christner, Chief Executive Officer of John Christner
Trucking, LLC. “With fuel savings as our primary ROI driver, ORBCOMM’s
tracking and monitoring solution will provide the critical insight we need to
better manage our trailer fleet operations and increase performance.”

ORBCOMM has begun initial deployment of its telematics system on John
Christner’s rail trailer fleet and expects to continue deployment on their
extensive OTR fleet in 2014.
