Northern Refrigerated uses ORBCOMM

ORBCOMM Inc (NASDAQ:ORBC) has been selected by Northern Refrigerated Transportation Inc to provide telematics solutions for its fleet of refrigerated trailers. Based in Turlock CA, Northern Refrigerated is a leader in less-than-truckload (LTL) West Coast refrigerated transport solutions.

Northern Refrigerated is using ORBCOMM’s cold chain telematics systems to track, monitor, and control its refrigerated trailers. The company’s end-to-end solution includes proprietary hardware and a robust web application with data reporting and analytics capabilities.

ORBCOMM provides Northern Refrigerated with two-way temperature monitoring and control, fuel management, maintenance, and logistics services. This enables the carrier to increase in-transit visibility and utilization of its assets, gain fuel savings, mitigate product spoilage, and ensure compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act.

In addition, ORBCOMM’s telematics solution easily integrates with the TMW TruckMate dispatch software platform. This provides Northern Refrigerated with a centralized view of near-real-time asset location, temperature and sensor readings, as well as alarm events through one system.

Northern Refrigerated will complete deployment of ORBCOMM’s cold chain solution by the end of 2016.
