Nova Scotia-based food distributor Sobeys Inc plans to deploy Safefreight Technology’s trailer temperature monitoring and GPS fleet management system. Safefreight’s Smartfleet technology will be installed on 90 Sobeys trailers that transport temperature-sensitive food products to 189 retail stores and three distribution centers in western Canada. Sobeys now can determine vehicle locations, audit inventory movement between distribution centers and stores, and monitor up to three temperature zones within its refrigerated trailers.
Sobeys will also be checking on the open/closed status of trailer doors to tell if food shipments have been exposed to any potentially unsafe conditions.
SmartFleet also supplies fleet reports online that include summaries for working hours and idling time, trip details, a stop/go activity report, and vehicle history.
