OPERATING DATA

Our Refrigeration Monitoring system connects to Thermo King, Carrier and other industry controllers & dataloggers to retrieve essential unit operational information. By feeding this data into our advanced monitoring algorithms, it provides automatic fault and error detection.

REEFER MONITORING IN THE CAB

Only Blue Tree offers the driver a real time view of the status of the trailer reefer unit while the driver is on the move. Our Reefer Unit Monitoring app can be run on our ELD or on a driver phone and provides real-time view of reefer settings, temperatures and immediate notification to the driver if a problem occurs. Why wait for the driver to take a break or reach their destination only to find the reefer has malfunctioned hours earlier and they did not know it. Of course our system also provides real-time data and immediate notifications to the office staff, but making the data available to the driver means that it is an extra pair of eyes watching over the load and it is more likely the problem will be detected and managed quickly.

ASSET VISIBILITY

Blue Tree provides reefer status and position updates every 5 minutes by default. Reefer status updates include reefer settings, mode of operation, air temperatures, fuel level, door status and many more. Any alarms, temperature out of range conditions or events such as door openings are reported in real time. Improve your utilization of assets and resources by having a near real-time view of your reefer fleet.

COMPLY WITH FSMA

FSMA_Overview

Get ready for the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in more than 70 years. Our comprehensive temperature monitoring, control and reporting platform is FSMA ready. With real-time temperature monitoring, out-of-range reporting and proof of in-transit temperatures, you will be ready immediately to meet the new regulations.

TEMPERATURE MONITORING

Advanced monitoring algorithms monitor cargo temperatures in real-time — and set variations and tolerances based on the cargo carried, continuously monitoring the reefer unit and any changes made to it. Reefer status updates are generated every five minutes, with unit status information including unit on/off, setpoint, return air, discharge air, mode of operation, active alarms, fuel levels and hour meter reading.

REAL TIME ALERTS

Identify problems before they become an issue with early warning and status updates through real-time temperature monitoring. Blue Tree’s automatic error detection systems monitor temperatures and set variations and tolerances based on the cargo carried. Intelligent, configurable alarms report ‘out-of-range’ conditions and information to understand the severity of the problem.

TWO-WAY CONTROL

Compartmentalized vehicles, multi-temperature and multi-zone loads mean today’s frozen and chilled loads are getting more complex. Eliminate potential errors of local, manual intervention by utilizing remote, two-way control of the reefer unit.

COMPREHENSIVE REPORTING

When something does go wrong, the carrier is often the first one blamed. Equip yourself with compliant, audited documentation – and quickly and easily provide proof of in-transit temperatures in graph or table format to your customers via email while the transit is at their loading dock.

CASE STUDY: RAIDER EXPRESS

MEJR-RaiderExpress

“We chose Blue Tree Systems because its solution provides the data we need to more effectively manage and grow our business, and its hardware and cellular-based solution is much better than anything else we’ve seen on the market. Blue Tree has also been willing to adapt its technology to meet our unique needs”

Mike Eggleton Jr, Vice president, Raider Express

DOOR MONITORING & TRAILERTAIL®

Blue Tree reports and alerts users to all door openings and closings, their duration and location. Blue Tree offers users the ability to detect when a TrailerTail® aerodynamic device is properly deployed by a driver through use of a modified door sensor, allowing fleets to significantly reduce drag, and in turn, significantly reduce fuel costs.

ACCURATE REEFER FUEL TANK MONITORING

Only Blue Tree offers fuel sensors with an accuracy <0.5 gal. If you are going to charge excessive fuel usage back to the customer, or detect fuel theft across your fleet, you better have accurate data to back up the claim. Blue Tree Systems reports the fuel level in the reefer tank every 10 minutes; all fuel fills are detected showing fuel fill amounts, including time and location. The fuel graph pops up a map showing the location of the vehicle at any time.
