Sustainability in the food value chain from production to distribution has become a strategic focus for consumer goods companies with many having set ambitious targets to reduce carbon emissions and resource requirements.
Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain. Companies on its Top Green Providers list have products, services, and exemplary leadership that enhance sustainability within the food and beverage industry.
“Cooltrax is honored to be recognized in a prestigious list of companies playing a vital role in driving the global food supply chain forward,” said Mike Sharpe, President, Cooltrax. “Cold-chain fleets using our asset and product monitoring technology are able to reduce waste while increasing the safety, security and quality of service for their customers.”
Cooltrax’s Fresh InTransit product line and wireless product monitoring solutions are deployed worldwide by fleets, warehouses and shippers to gain real-time data and insights to boost asset utilization and ensure reliable and consistent food quality.
Fresh InTransit Wireless IoT sensors enable continuous uninterrupted product and door monitoring along with reefer remote command and control functions in the Asset Tracking units, enabling fleet managers to start and stop reefer units and change temperature set points. These and other advanced functions help them maximize fuel savings by reducing engine idling and eliminating instances where drivers have to stop in route to make reefer adjustments.
The tracking units for trailers and containers are engineered to operate in ultra-sensitive environments where other GPS units commonly fail, such as container stacks. These industrial-strength IoT devices have long-lasting, easily replaceable batteries for uninterrupted service life.
"Our Top Green Providers demonstrate leadership in sustainability throughout the global food supply chain, from better management of natural resources to technology applications and operational improvements that reduce food waste from the farm to the retailer to the end consumer," notes Lara Sowinski, editorial director of Food Logistics. "Environmental stewardship is a defining feature for these companies, as is their determination to continually raise the sustainability bar year after year."
For more than 10 years, Cooltrax has helped companies across the globe operate their businesses more efficiently, with a suite of solutions that provide unparalleled visibility and control of their entire cold chain while providing warehouse and fleet managers the analytics and real-time data to manage all their cold storage locations and reefer units with confidence resulting in improved ROI.
