12 08 New Refrigerated Transportation White Paper
If you transport temperature-sensitive freight, how prepared are you if something goes wrong with a refrigerated load?
While some temperature-controlled transportation companies believe that traditional responses to rejected loads are adequate, a new white paper issued by Blue Tree Systems makes it clear that automated, real-time, two-way systems with documented reporting are needed to cope with North America’s rapidly changing cold chain logistics industry.
Transporters work in a rapidly changing work environment, due to changing food safety regulations, more discerning customers, increasing complexity of reefer units and rising cargo values.
The result is that reefer unit complexity, driver error and late notification from dataloggers leave transportation organizations wide open to the potential for rejected loads, insurance claims, contract loss and reputational damage.
Our white paper, “7 Key Challenges in Refrigerated Transportation”, provides insight into addressing such issues as hot loads, equipment failure, driver error, late notification, post-incident paper trails, regulations compliance and the lack of remote control. The white paper helps transporters understand the key challenges – and what you can do to address them.”
