Share Article

Shippers and carriers transporting refrigerated and frozen foods, agricultural products or other perishables can optimize their business operations with Safefefreight's portable, wireless tracking and security device - the SecurityGuard™212 . It will help them monitor temperature conditions of their trailers so that their perishable cargo won't be compromised. This technology also provides GPS location and maintenance information in real time so that fleet managers can maximize the management of their truck and trailer fleet.

NutriSystem has been seeking a product for the past 12 months that provides the portability, functionality and most importantly, the reliability of Safefreight's SecurityGuard 212. I can confidently state that our team was very impressed with the results of our pilot and we will now be avdancing our relationship to the next phase of the sales cycle

Monitoring refrigerated and frozen foods in the supply chain has just become easier with Safefreight's portable, wireless tracking and security device - the SecurityGuard™212. This compact GPS tracking device eliminates installation costs and helps fleet operators monitor and manage pre-set temperatures, trailer location and maintenance schedules in real time across multiple networks.

"NutriSystem has been seeking a product for the past 12 months that provides the portability, functionality and most importantly, the reliability of Safefreight's SecurityGuard 212. I can confidently state that our team was very impressed with the results of our pilot and we will now be avdancing our relationship to the next phase of the sales cycle," said Michael Lane, Senior Director Supply Chain of NutriSystem.

With Safefreight's SmartFleet™ System, security and location information is collected by a portable GPS tracking device, communicated wirelessly by cellular or satellite, and served to the customer through Safefreight's online fleet management application, SmartFleet™ Manager. Fleet managers or other key personnel know immediately if perishable cargo is at risk for temperature abuse so they can take preventive action immediately.

Safefreight's "exception" based solution can monitor and provide alerts for three different temperature zones within a refrigerated trailer. The portability and flexibility of Safefreight's device allows shippers to maintain visibility over their products within the supply chain and provides carriers an alternative to retrofit their entire fleet with a permanent fixed mounted solution. The portable feature helps maximize efficiency of fleet operations without incurring huge capital costs.

"With Safefreight's SecurityGuard™ 212 trailer temperature monitoring, you have the ability to monitor and manage trailer temperature at any time," said Jim Balestra, Safefreight's Chief Operating Officer. "Customers can access a trailer temperature report that gives them peace of mind that their cargo was never at risk due to unsafe trailer temperatures, and that hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) principles in food transportation are maintained," added Balestra.
