Union Equity, Inc. Begins Beta Testing for New State of the Art GPS Tracking System

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Union Equity Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UNQT) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed an agreement with EarthSearch Communications, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of East Coast Diversified Corp. (OTCBB: ECDC) to begin a six month beta testing for a new state of the art GPS (global positioning system) developed by Earth Search. Union Equity's management believes that EarthSearch's LogiBoxx™ GPS tracking system will help Union Equity increase its recovery rate on lost or stolen Class 8 semi-trucks, which, in turn, may also help increase the recovery rate of any lost or stolen cargo carried thereon.

Based in the US, EarthSearch's flagship product, LogiBoxx™, integrates GPS and RFID (radio-frequency identification). LogiBoxx™ communicates wirelessly with RFID interrogators, sharing data, reacting to anomalies, and making intelligent business decisions about cargo in transit, supply chain and logistics operations without human intervention, all in real-time. The LogiBoxx™ Certified Solution, when combined with EarthSearch's middleware GATIS (Global Asset Tracking and Identification System), offers continuous visibility within supply chain, logistics, and asset management.

A recent survey by Chubb Group Insurance Companies revealed that broken links in the supply chain are one of the top three threats to business operations and one of the most significant 'breaks' in the supply chain is theft. In the United States cargo security market, an estimated $10 billion to $30 billion in merchandise is stolen from cargo ships, trucks, ports, railroads and highways annually. Furthermore, according to the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA), 85 percent of all business asset losses are attributed to either the theft or loss of product in transit.

"Union Equity is a perfect candidate to test our state of the art LogiBoxx™ technology. We are very impressed with Union Equity's fleet of Class 8 semi-trucks and are hopeful that we will have a long and successful relationship with them for years to come," stated Kayode Aladesuyi, President of EarthSearch Communications, Inc.

"We feel that EarthSearch's Integrated GPS/ RFID tracking system is a perfect fit for us," stated Steven Woodell, President of Union Equity, Inc. "This is a great way for us to protect our trucks, which in turn will help us save money and allow us to grow our Class 8 semi-truck fleet."
