Eroad’s newly introduced CoreHub Xtreme is a “next-generation,” IoT trailer monitoring and control gateway designed to deliver supply chain assurance and optimized fleet efficiency for cold chain transportation.

The New Zealand-headquartered fleet management technology company says CoreHub Xtreme is engineered to “transform food safety” by delivering real-time data from all connected assets into a single platform. According to the CDC, an estimated 48 million people get sick from foodborne diseases in the United States each year. With the adoption of CoreHub Xtreme and its IoT network of door, temperature, fuel, and humidity sensors, drivers and fleet managers will be able to minimize lost loads and have confidence in the safety of their food cargo, despite potential harsh weather or road conditions.

“Our daily lives are affected by reefer and cold chain transportation whether we realize it or not,” said Akinyemi Koyi, president of Eroad North America. “Protecting those goods and the drivers who are transporting them is crucial.

“Because of this, we are excited that the merging of Eroad and Coretex led us to be able to develop a richer solution to solve issues such as these. CoreHub Xtreme empowers fleet managers and their drivers with the ability to not only monitor the driver, asset, and load in real-time, but also diagnose and prevent potential bad outcomes like lost loads—further contributing to both driver and cargo safety, and cost savings.”

The CoreHub Xtreme trailer gateway offers integrated workflows and advanced engine diagnostics for equipment monitoring and control, which can lead to increased efficiency and operational optimization, Eroad said.

Additional benefits of CoreHub Xtreme include:

  • Boosting trailer health and driver safety: By monitoring trailer automatic braking systems, engine fault codes, tire pressure and more, companies can save on maintenance costs and boost the fleet’s overall health.
  • Increased fuel savings and asset utilization: With features like remote pre-cooling, pre-cooling analytics, and idle reports, fleets also can increase efficiencies, saving time and money when it comes to fuel and asset utilization.

“Safety and efficiency are key when it comes to the reefer and cold chain industries,” Koyi said. “Now, drivers and fleet managers can gain increased insights into every moment of the trip. CoreHub Xtreme encompasses the entire transportation experience—from fuel efficiency and asset utilization to temperature monitoring and vehicle maintenance, making it easy to operate with confidence.”
