3 Reasons Why Remote Temperature Monitoring is Important in Reefer Trucks & Supply Chain Management
Updated: Aug 28, 2018
Improper temperature control is a key reason why food and other perishable cargo are wasted in the supply chain.
Monitor Cold Chain Operations for Increased Profitability
Ensure cargo temperature stays within the acceptable range and use sensors to alert if any sudden changes occur.
Minimize temperature-related load rejections, reduce costly spoilage claims, cut redelivery costs and use “lockdown” mode to help prevent cargo theft.
Provide critical reports to determine location, reduce dwell times and optimize reefer performance.
Reduce Fuel Consumption and Fleet Operating Costs
Read data from fuel sensors and send alarms in the event of rapid fuel loss or theft. Detect and resolve improper fuel invoicing, and eliminate unnecessary continuous run usage.
Track engine hours and mileage to decrease engine maintenance, tire replacement costs, and to extend trailer lifetime and warranty periods.
Enhance Regulatory Compliance
Automate compliance with the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and other food safety regulations.
Comply with stringent pharmaceutical transport requirements, such as the Good Distribution Practice(European Directive 92/25/EEC).
Leverage devices from a manufacturer validated for Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP5) compliance.
