Trackloop Analytics Corporation, in collaboration with Volta Air Technologies and BYD Company Ltd, announced the deployment of Trackloop’s proprietary temperature monitoring software in one of the first all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles demonstrated for commercial use in North America.
BYD Motors plans to offer all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles throughout North America; Berkshire Hathaway Inc is one of its largest shareholders. The demonstration vehicles use Volta Air’s latest transport refrigeration unit, equipped with Trackloop’s real-time cold-chain monitoring and tracking software to create and establish zero-emission refrigerated delivery vehicles.
This collaboration presents an alternative to conventional refrigeration units for urban delivery vehicles. Most delivery vehicles used commercially are either gas- or diesel-powered, and consume a significant amount of fuel. Trackloop’s software allows users to monitor and control all systems related to operation of the refrigeration unit, as well as location tracking.
A commercial demonstration is currently underway with two vehicles by Baldor Specialty Foods in New York, and, Raley’s Supermarkets & D&D Produce in California. Vehicles have also been showcased at several food delivery and advanced transportation expos.
“We are very proud to be with leaders in the food logistics industry, involved in building a more sustainable future,” said Zayn Kalyan, Trackloop chief technology officer. “Working with BYD Motors and Volta Air on this project to successfully demonstrate the value of all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles is a massive milestone in the company’s roadmap, and the industry as a whole.”
