Tracking Solutions for Food Transportation Companies

Food transportation companies can benefit by improving their customer’s satisfaction and increasing productivity, while reducing costs, minimizing risks and increasing profits.

The transportation of foods and ingredients that are shipped frozen, refrigerated or at ambient temperatures must be monitored at all times. Foods and ingredients are susceptible to abuse or contamination during transportation and storage. The end customers are also expecting the delivery at a specific time. Regular customers for food companies often require historical information about shipment arrivals, the time to load and arrival to the destination. GlobalTrack monitors all these events with powerful solutions. Know at all times the temperature of the merchandise or attempts of theft or tampering. Optimize merchandise delivery and vehicle deployment as well as managing the fleet maintenance schedule which will directly lower operating costs. Combine these solutions and increase customer satisfaction, and increase productivity.
