Scottish soft fruit and swede producer Stewarts of Tayside is taking advantage of Carrier Transicold’s updated Foretrack management system on six new temperature-controlled trailers with Vector 1550 refrigeration units.
Foretrack gives transport managers the ability to remotely alter the set point or operation mode as well as initiate defrosts and pre-trip checks, and clear alarms from a connected device anywhere in the world.
Foretrack accesses Google Maps for tracking functionality, providing improved accuracy and coverage. It also boasts a refreshed web portal and a new mobile app on both iOS and Android devices, allowing users access to the upgraded system from anywhere in the world. Foretrack can also generate improved operational reports, providing rapid analysis of a refrigerated fleet’s performance.
Winn added: “Having remote access to our fleet data, coupled with the instant performance report capability, has completely changed the way we operate. I can’t remember how we worked without Foretrack to be honest. We’re a 24/7 operation and the freshness of our produce is critical, so having such a reliable fleet management system is vitally important.”
The six new Vector 1550 units were specified on 13.6-metre Gray & Adams trailers and form part of a 27-strong, 100 per cent Carrier-cooled trailer fleet. The customer will also specify Foretrack with its next batch of 10 trailers with Vector 1550 units.
