HINTS FOR FLEET
Accurate Temperature Monitoring
If you’re transporting temperature sensitive goods, Cartrack’s Temperature Monitoring is the solution you need to ensure your goods get from A to B in pristine condition.
How? We install probes that measure the temperature at all times, ensuring any SLA agreements are upheld.
A recent example is one of our client’s – a well-known juice brand – who needed to ensure that the temperature of the goods remained below a particular threshold, including during deliveries.
To achieve this, we created a system which has between 2-4 temperature probes in different places in the delivery vehicle. For this client two probes were required; one was in a water bottle simulating the products actual temperature, and the other was at the cargo door, reading the temperature there to ensure that it didn’t rise too much during deliveries.
The device includes the temperature reading in the normal tracking data the system collects. It also reports any changes in temperature when the vehicle is stationary.
This system also allowed our client to ensure that their sub-contractors were adhering to the temperature requirements when one of the delivery vehicles refrigerators needed repairing.
Helpful Hint: Use the Temperatures Sensors Report to see a full report of the goods temperature throughout the journey to delivery. This is especially useful to provide to your customer as proof that the temperature was within the agreed range.
NEW Dashboard Overview
We are excited to launch a new overview for our Dashboard, which concentrates on vehicle behaviour. This view has a lot of useful data so give it some time to load.
The data can be manipulated to suit your preferences. This new view is a quick way for you to get a snapshot of some key metrics in one easy to manage place.
To get to this Overview, Log into your Cartrack account and select Dashboard from the top menu bar.
The reporting is further filtered into time periods; the last 7 days, 30 days, 90 days, 120 days and finally 1 year.
Feature Highlight: Analysis vs Insight. At the top of each module in the Dashboard Overview, there is the option to switch between Analysis and Insight. The Analysis shows the information summary, and the Insight gives specific details into that Analysis.
