System provides alerts

by MM&D staff

FROM THE MM&D JULY/AUGUST 2011 PRINT EDITION: Logistics and transportation service provider Alliance Shippers Inc will outfit its fleet of 1,700 refrigerated trailers with Two-Way Monitoring and Control Systems from PAR Logistics Management Systems. PAR’s solution can provide real-time temperature monitoring during transit by road or rail, and offers immediate alerts to variances in temperature or a refrigerated trailer’s operating mode.

PAR’s tracking and information system generates information to monitor and control refrigerated trailer temperatures, react and respond to alarms and optimize cold chain asset logistics and management. Customized reporting provides alerts on variances to refrigerated trailer temperatures, operability, low fuel, abnormal/excessive fuel consumption and excessive dwell time. PAR also provides an independent hard-wired temperature probe to monitor and report every 15 minutes.
