Ultrack Systems Fully Acquires California Trucking Company M-Loan Inc
Ultrack Signs MOU to Acquire East Coast Trucking Company
After a crazy few weeks in the market we are back with what has the potential to be a massive bounce play at these levels.
Turn your attention to MJLB immediately.
Ultrack Systems Inc., is a provider of GPS tracking solutions. We develop, implement, and distribute electronic monitoring and tracking systems for companies in leasing, transportation, construction, disposal, and many other services driven industries. Our platform includes live tracking, reports, and alerts on a web-based platform. Our mission is to provide the best fleet tracking, reporting systems and our commitment to service. The Company plans to launch a new ELD product in 2022 in partnership with major corporations that will take the trucking industry by storm. Their founders’ history started over 45 years ago in the automotive industry as a licensed mechanic with an innovative mind. Technological advances in the industry required a higher skill set that led him to the telecommunications sector.
One of the major telecommunication projects was the 3G “Inukshuk” initiative that involved providing high speed cellular/internet service for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games. The next step in the telecommunications industry was the newly evolving fleet tracking sector using GPS and cellular technology.
This led to the first pilot project of its kind in the industry. It involved placing tracking hardware into a fleet of service vehicles to track their movements and location online. As the fleet tracking industry progressed new challenges and opportunities arose. A project came along that required a taxi company with 1700+ cabs that required installations be completed within a 6 month period. Upon completion of this project the inspiration to start Ultrack was born. Our goal is to continue to be innovative in the products we develop and to provide the best service to our clients to keep them ahead of the competition.
As of June 12, 2022 Canadian fleets must register approved ELDs.
Electronic logging devices (ELDs) are equipment that automatically records driving time in commercial motor vehicles. This helps make sure that drivers are compliant with hours of service regulations resulting in reduced fatigue for drivers, improved administrative efficiency, and safer roads.
On May 5, 2021, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) announced all jurisdictions support a period of progressive enforcement without penalties until June 12, 2022, including elevated education and awareness for motor carriers and drivers. In other words, there’s a one year grace period
Meaning, in less than a year Fleet Management companies, need to register their fleets with approved ELD’s confirmed by one of the two accredited certification bodies, FPInnovations or CSA Group.
As of 2018, there were over 413,000 Fleet registrations. That’s a huge market in need of certified ELD’s within the next few years.
Ultrack Systems Fully Acquires California Trucking Company M-Loan Inc
Concord, Vaughan, Ontario, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ultrack Systems Inc. (OTC Pink: MJLB), a total fleet-management GPS tracking and monitoring solution provider, is pleased to announce that Ultrack Systems has successfully acquired the California trucking company M-Loan Inc.
M-Loan has an extensive track record within the United States trucking industry and has specialized in the west-coast financing sector. The United States trucking industry enjoys the highest GDP in the world of any trucking industry. The GDP of the USA’s trucking industry alone is higher than that of the entire GDP of many nations. The M-Loan acquisition sets the stage for both companies to come together as one under the Ultrack umbrella. Furthermore, the M-Loan acquisition immediately expands Ultrack’s footprint into strategic USA locations so that Ultrack can be thought of more as a ‘North American’ company and not simply a ‘Canadian’ company.
Ultrack CEO Michael Marsbergen proudly commented on the successful M-Loan acquisition: “My intention is to make this the first of many successful North American acquisitions for Ultrack. I remain convinced that acquiring multiple North American trucking companies that are in line with Ultrack’s mission and other existing businesses adds significant value for Ultrack’s shareholders. I believe that the M-Loan acquisition will provide significant momentum to expand the Ultrack brand across North American markets. Again let me reconfirm that I am working toward building the Ultrack brand throughout North America. I will post any updates on our Twitter page throughout the coming weeks.”
Regarding Ultrack’s flagship ELD device certification progress, Ultrack’s ELD is the only Windows version that has been submitted to Transport Canada for certification. We are required to clarify how our Windows product and other key features compare to the Android systems submitted by others. Our 90% completion status reported last month has slowed as a result of these additional reporting changes. Please note that our ELD has completed and passed all of the tests performed by the third party testing agency and we are currently awaiting clarification and direction from Transport Canada regarding the few remaining tests.
Ultrack’s ELD is a completely standalone unit that does not transmit the driver ELD data to a remote server. All Android ELD devices have to connect to a remote server to download driver ELD data before the driver can start their trip. The advantage to Ultrack’s ELD is that we have an instantaneous login and the Android system could take up to 10 min depending on connectivity. Because of these key differences between our ELD and all others, Transport Canada has been slow to finalize certification. However, investors should take heart that certification delayed is not certification denied! The Company believes Ultrack will soon be able to offer a certified ELD product like no other in the industry once Transport Canada (the absolute final hurdle in the ELD certification process) grants Ultrack the coveted thumbs up.

Ultrack Signs MOU to Acquire East Coast Trucking Company
Concord, Ontario, Feb. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ultrack Systems Inc. (OTC Pink: MJLB), a total fleet-management GPS tracking and monitoring solution provider, is pleased to announce that Ultrack has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with an east coast trucking company which provides Ultrack the opportunity to fully acquire the target company.
Under the terms of the MOU Ultrack Systems would purchase 100% ownership of Power Moves Transport, Inc. (PWTI). Both parties will perform customary due diligence and position themselves for the closing. A share exchange between the parties will be utilized to facilitate the closing of the transaction. PWTI has a solid track-record within the niche trucking industry of transporting automobiles throughout the United States.
Ultrack CEO Michael Marsbergen enthusiastically explained the acquisition: “This important 100% acquisition of a seasoned USA trucking company immediately adds value to Ultrack’s bottom line while expanding our corporate reach into likeminded horizontal markets. I believe the MOU expresses favorable terms to both companies and provides tremendous benefits for both companies to come together as one under the Ultrack umbrella. Furthermore, this acquisition immediately expands Ultrack’s footprint into strategic USA locations so that Ultrack can be thought of more as a ‘North American’ company and not simply a ‘Canadian’ company.”
The United States trucking industry enjoys the highest GDP in the world of any trucking industry. The GDP of the USA’s trucking industry alone is higher than that of the entire GDP of many nations. In 2020, the trucking industry in the US generated $737.3 billion, down from 2019 when it generated $791.7 billion, the decline likely due to restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, the industry is massive, and the outlook remains positive for future growth.
The Company stated in our recent press release based on firm data from the testing agency that Ultrack’s certification is 78% completed. That number is now closer to 81% and continues to move toward 100%.
MY PET TRACKER
Ultrack has completed the development of the Company’s proprietary new GPS pet-tracking hardware: “Ultrack My Pet Tracker.” This exciting new GPS product is currently in the testing phase at the Ultrack facilities and with a select focus group of North American pet owners. The Company plans to launch Ultrack My Pet Tracker in the early Spring of 2022. Key features of this new Ultrack product include “no air time fees” required to use this product and a conservative range of approximately 25 kilometers. The Company is currently working with designers to prepare for a brand rollout, including a website and social media specific to this new product.
Ultrack CEO Steve Marsbergen enthusiastically commented on the new Ultrack product: “We believe that the Ultrack My Pet Tracker will capture a healthy slice of the GPS pet tracking market because once customers buy our product there are no monthly fees or long-term commitments. Customers pay for it once and it just works. No ongoing fees coupled with a stable and robust technology is why I’m excited to get our new GPS pet tracker product to market in the very near term.”
Testing of the flagship Ultrack ELD is progressing slowly yet surely as the Ultrack ELD product is currently the only Windows-based ELD. Ultrack has long believed and proclaimed that the Windows operating system is superior to Android alone. But because Ultrack’s device is the sole ELD built around Windows architecture, some additional challenges of certification have surfaced. Primary among these issues is that the Ultrack ELD is an “always on” product; therefore, any certification tests involving the shut down and restart of an ELD product simply do not apply to the Ultrack ELD. Ultrack remains in close and constant contact with the testing facility to address any of their concerns associated with Ultrack’s superior “always on” technology.
Ultrack remains absolutely confident that the Company’s flagship ELD device will receive certification. Ultrack remains hopeful that receiving the certification is now a matter of weeks and not months. Although the wait has been excruciating for the team here at Ultrack, current Ultrack clients anxiously awaiting the arrival of this device, and the Company’s valued stakeholders, one silver lining to ultimately receiving the Canadian certification is that the Ultrack device will be fully approved throughout North America as Canada employs the toughest ELD standards on the continent: https://www.fleetowner.com/news/article/21182436/canada-takes-more-systematic-approach-to-eld-certification.
Ultrack’s existing customer base has provided feedback that they much prefer the Company’s Windows based ELD units compared to the Android systems. Ultrack’s ELD provides superior hardware power, administrative tracking and inspection tools, and the overall speed because the Ultrack ELD employs the “always on” technology which allows for instantaneous login and conclusively saves clients time and money.
2022 BUSINESS OUTLOOK
The trucking industry’s total revenue throughout all of North America is approaching the one trillion dollar mark. Over 13% of registered vehicles are trucks. Canadian truck production is more than triple that of car production with over 1.4 million trucks produced in 2019.
The trucking industry is experiencing a surge in business and trailers are currently on backorder. As fulfilment of these orders start, an increase in Ultrack’s tracking products will be required. Thankfully, the Company has ample inventory of all Ultrack hardware to meet these current and forthcoming demands.
Ultrack CEO Steve Marsbergen concluded: “I know that the wait for our ELD certification has been tough on everyone. But we are still moving forward and getting the certification will ultimately happen! Receiving the ELD certification is the key that unlocks the door for all kinds of new business for us. Once we receive the ELD certification, I anticipate being able to announce a steady stream of new contracts with new fleets. While we await the ELD certification, we continue to add new clients and new products to our lineup. Thank you for your support and may you all have a wonderful holiday season.”
