Blackline’s Progress™ Logistics Service Featured Prominently in National Advertising Campaign
October 13, 2011
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – Oct. 13, 2011) – Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) has received an honorable endorsement for its Progress™ shipment tracking service by one of North America’s leading automotive transportation companies. Passport Transport has highlighted Blackline’s Progress service within a nationally televised commercial and throughout their marketing materials. The service allows customers of the transport company to personally access a real-time location of their shipment in transit through a unique tracking number that enables online mapping.
“Customers find this service invaluable as their vehicle is carefully transported by ground and requires time to reach its destination. Customers then know the precise location of their shipment, rather than the last known city or waypoint, which provides peace of mind and allows them to plan ahead, to the minute,” said Passport Transport President, Neil Pitt. “We chose to feature Blackline as a prominent part of our service since we found that more than 90 percent of our customers elect to use the Progress™ service,” he continued.
Passport Transport’s television commercial can be viewed on their website. Blackline’s Progress service is compatible with a number of Blackline devices including Entourage™ CIS, Entourage™ PS, Javelin™, and Flat Track™.
