International Telematics to provide real-time cold chain security for Kriska
TORONTO, Ont. – Kriska Holdings (Kriska) and International Telematics (ITC) announced a service agreement to equip Kriska’s entire fleet of refrigerated trailers with the ibright refrigerated telematics system.
Reefer Sales & Service is the largest dealer of the ibright product in Canada. The company will facilitate the installation and ongoing support across the Kriska fleet in the first quarter of 2014.
“We have heard loud and clear from our food and pharmaceutical customers that cold chain security – both from a temperature abuse and tampering perspective – is of paramount concern,” said Mark Seymour, CEO of Kriska. “The ibright platform will allow our employees and our customers to see in real-time not only where their freight is, but also the current and past temperature history of the load, when and where the trailer was open, the health of the reefer including fuel levels, as well as an ability to remotely make changes to the reefer settings. We believe this added level of safety and security is appropriate given the tremendous importance of protecting the North American cold chain.”
Reefer Sales & Service business development manager Brad Otsuka is pleased to offer continued support to their customers.
“We are extremely excited to continue providing value-added services and products to our customers,” said Otsuka, Business Development Manager at Reefer Sales and Service. “Kriska has been a very important transport refrigeration customer for a long time and the ibright telematics system is a natural extension of our core product line, able to monitor truck and trailer reefers as well as heaters.
“Customers like Kriska are recognizing the benefit of choosing an industry leading telematics product delivered and supported by their reefer dealer, giving them a competitive edge in cold chain compliance, customer satisfaction, and increased operational efficiencies positively affecting the bottom line.”

So Kriska is getting technology that many others have had and been using for the past two or more years?
Not really sure why that is news other than Seymour just wanted some free publicity to see his name in the news…
