AirIQ protects perishables

WINNIPEG, Man. — Running reefers and heaters can mean your mistakes are often costly, but AirIQ says its latest offering guards against temperature related losses.

At the Red River Exposition Park in Winnipeg, the company used the Canadian Truck Show to introduce the trucking industry to a Web-enabled wireless solution to locate, protect and manage temperature-controlled vehicles in AirIQ for Refrigerated Trailers.

“This announcement completes our strategy of providing a single source application for fleet managers within the commercial transport industry,” says Don Simmonds, president and chief executive officer.

In addition to tracking and locating features, a reefer fault alert gives the operations department a window into the reefer’s self-diagnostic unit. The instant a fault is recorded the fleet manager can take action to protect any perishables before they are lost.

Across North America, about 15 per cent of the trailers on the road are reefers — carrying with them a price tag generally triple the size of a standard dry van.

“Avoiding the cost and operational difficulties resulting from spoiled goods is a tremendous value proposition for any commercial transport organization, not to mention the value of always knowing where their assets are located,” says Miguel Gonsalves, vice-president of AirIQ’s Commercial Transport division. “This product will allow our clients to deliver quality goods to their customers consistently.”
