Motive announces cold chain products, partnerships for food, beverage fleets

Motive has recently expanded its offering for the food and beverage market with the launch of a new Reefer Monitoring solution for refrigerated vehicles and trailers. The solution helps businesses  improve compliance with food transportation safety requirements and reduce costs related to reefer operations. 

For customers using Thermo King reefer units, Motive collaborated with Thermo King to introduce a new integration that enables monitoring of reefer telematics data from the Motive Fleet Dashboard. This integration helps to avoid any food spoilage and lower the operating and maintenance cost of the reefer systems by proactively detecting any problems. In addition, the new integration enables customers to remotely program and control reefer units to eliminate manual pre-cooling before a trip, saving time and reducing the potential for human error. 

Motive Reefer Monitoring includes a new environmental sensor that remotely monitors reefer temperature and humidity conditions in real-time. With this capability, businesses have all their fleet data on a single screen, including location, vehicle telematics, and reefer insights. The solution makes it also possible to create reefer logs for any time period on demand without the need to visit a service center, which reduces cost, decreases reefer downtime, and improves the service that fleets can provide to their own customers. It also helps the fleets to comply with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements.

Motive’s Environmental Sensor and integration with Thermo King are available today to customers in the United States and Canada.
