LoJack Supply Chain Integrity (SCI) and Modality Solutions have announced a program to jointly provide integrated systems to select high-value cargo and highly regulated supply chain markets.
The parties will provide comprehensive cold chain assessment, turnkey program implementation, monitoring, tracking, and informational feedback services to assure that high-value, critical goods in transit are protected and meet specified regulatory shipping requirements.
Modality Solutions has experience in modeling critical shipment parameters through its proprietary Advantage Transport Simulation Laboratory (ATSL). By providing advance notice of prospective risks in various factors and modalities, ATSL significantly reduces product development cycle times. LoJack SCI’s range of cellular GPS-based tracking technology in concert with the LoJack InTransit web portal monitoring system will serve as the eyes and ears to ensure that sensitive shipment protocols are maintained and that a wide range of compliance requirements are assured 24/7.
LoJack SCI and Modality Solutions have agreed to develop a suite of technology and service systems for cold chain and related environmentally sensitive shipment applications.
“We understand that this market has requirements which are much more stringent than general cargo transport, and our partnership with Modality Solutions brings a quantum leap in our ability to bring solutions that are comprehensive and address all risk factors in this specialized market. The integration of the engineering, environment simulation and quality management systems expertise of Modality Solutions, coupled with LoJack SCI’s complete set of security and environmental monitoring capabilities, is aimed at customers needing a turnkey approach to these challenges,” said Ted Wlazlowski, president and chief executive officer of LoJack SCI.
“We see the addition of LoJack SCI’s real time tracking and monitoring capabilities to be a logical extension to Modality Solutions’ promise of what we engineer and recommend for our clients. By having an onboard environmental monitoring technology to assure that critical-to-quality parameters are carefully monitored and carrier quality agreements are rigorously enforced, we can provide management information that will be both valuable and compliance supportive,” said Gary Hutchinson, president of Modality Solutions.
The companies will provide seamless turnkey system packages for the cold chain market, so customers will not have to construct extensive protection and compliance monitoring programs.
