They serve a large and growing market ad deal with a variety of dairy products from different sources.

The Problem Outline

As perishable dairy products were being transported live temperature monitoring. A supportive system to address real-time critical alerts was a priority requirement for them. In order to reduce damage and discrepancies they needed to make sure that driver behaviour was proper during the journey. A monitoring system to identify violation and temperature breaches would improve productivity over the long run. Reefer trucks have planned journeys and stoppages at delivery points, that is scheduled on a daily basis which requires real-time monitoring using GPS vehicle tracking technology.
