How prepared are you if something goes wrong with the refrigerated freight you’re carrying? A new white paper from Blue Tree Systems, “7 Key Challenges in Refrigerated Transportation,” addresses issues such as hot loads, equipment failure, driver error, late notification, post-incident paper trails, regulations compliance and the lack of remote control.
Temperature-controlled freight carriers work in a rapidly changing work environment due to new FSMA rules, more discerning customers, increasing complexity of reefer units and rising cargo values, Blue Tree said.
The result is that reefer complexity, driver error and late notification from dataloggers leave transportation organizations wide open to the potential for rejected loads, insurance claims, contract loss and reputational damage. Blue Tree said its white paper helps carriers understand the key challenges – and offers solutions on how to address them.
