Cold Chain Solution
Along with all the other complexities associated with transporting goods, cold chain logistics require strict adherence to maintaining temperature thresholds for each delivery. Monitoring humidity is required in perishables transportation, complying with manufacturers’ thresholds. Not doing so, or not having the ability to prove that you’ve done so, can disqualify valuable shipments and leave you with unhappy customers, damaged goods and in breach of service level agreements.
With tools that ensure compliance with GDP (Good Distribution Practices) that regulates the pharma industry, and EN 12830 (European standards) for transportation of deep frozen and quick-frozen food and ice cream, Pointer’s solutions for cold chain logistics effectively monitors cargo condition. You’ll be able to monitor single or multi-compartment refrigerated trailers up to single pallets, with options for audible in-cab alarms, as well as to the control room, reporting deviations in pre-defined humidity or temperature thresholds.
MANAGE BY EXCEPTION
Manage by exception with alarms raised only if the pre-defined temperature or humidity thresholds are breached in any particular compartment.
REAL-TIME VISIBILATY & ALERTS
The real-time tracking and condition monitoring, combined with the alarms and alert mechanisms, allow you to mitigate the potential of damaged or disqualified cargo, giving you the ability to address issues as they arise and improve the logistics chain efficiency, security and confidence in the product quality supplied to every customer.
Advanced reporting that helps you prove compliance and facilitates smooth ‘handshakes’ between the various stakeholders along the logistical route.

We’ll monitor your fleet and provide insights regarding its efficiency including fuel utilization, idling, how many hours the vehicles were in use, dormant vehicles etc.
Easily discover hidden costs and losses such as fuel syphoning, vehicle usage in off-business hours/days and driver behavior that negatively impacts your fleet’s fuel economy.
You’ll receive alerts indicating theft (syphoning) or re-fueling and would be able to analyze fuel consumption based on trips, fuel dashboard and reports. Minimize fraud by utilizing the integration with third-party fuel card partners, to receive information about who refueled and when in real-time.
