When most people think of ‘Technology in Trucking’ the benefits surround transparency of location, and the integrity of temperature protected products – both very important to us, and we know they are to you as well – but there is an even more paramount application of technology…SAFETY.
Safety of our drivers, and safety of all the other motorists on the road.
We have also selected Samsara as our in-cab camera vendor, and we utilize both road and driver facing cameras.In a world where the courtrooms are becoming increasingly more popular these cameras have also become increasingly more important, and proven their value time and time again.With the use of our in-cab cameras we have not only been able to keep ourselves out of the courtroom, but also our customers!
Samsara is also our partner in satellite tracking.We utilize their products on our tractors and our trailers.We have satellites on tractors and trailers independently of each other so we can track our assets, and your product whether they are hooked to a tractor or not.
Orbcomm is a separate satellite tracking platform that we utilize on our trailers – we know, we know…it seems redundant, right?Trust us, it’s not!We LOVE this vendor!Not only is the tracking ability great as a back up to the Samsara satellites we have installed, but it gives our TEMP TEAM a job!Come on, be honest – what other carriers have a TEMP TEAM?!?
With our relationship with Orbcomm we canmonitor, and change temperature remotely!Our TEMP TEAM monitors reefer temperatures manually, and on an excursion-based protocol.We confirm set points 30 minutes after departure from the shipper’s dock, and then oversee the temperatures the entire time we have product in our possession!
As an added bonus, our ERP system is integrated with Orbcomm, and when actual reefer temperatures are out of the acceptable range our TEMP TEAM gets an alert, and an action is taken immediately – no matter the time of day or night, we have someone from the TEMP TEAM with their eye on the gauge!
