Cold Chain Monitoring for Trucks

Use Case

Real-time monitoring of refrigerated vehicles in the supply chain

High competition and thin margins force supply chain and transportation organizations to find ways to improve efficiency and reduce the number of rejected shipments in their care. At the same time, compliance requirements for certain goods continue to increase, making an easier method for tracking temperature during shipments necessary.

When it comes to cold chain transportation, gaining the ability to monitor, alert, and audit the journey that deliveries take is an essential step to improving delivery acceptance rates and overall quality of service provided. This also reduces the enormous expense of spoiled and rejected shipments.
