Cold chain fleet management company offers leasing, renting, and ColdLink telematics for more than 13,000 refrigerated trailers.

PLM Fleet, a technology-driven fleet management company dedicated to the cold supply chain, is celebrating 50 years in business.

With a comprehensive fleet management approach, PLM Fleet creates flexible and customer-specific solutions to reduce costs and drive productivity for businesses nationwide. Located in a “state-of-the-art” fleet solutions center in Newark, New Jersey, PLM provides nationwide leasing, renting, and ColdLink telematics for more than 13,000 refrigerated trailers.

“I can think of no better way to honor PLM’s 50th Anniversary than to win for the third consecutive year the NJ Top Workplace award,’’ said Keith Shipp, president and CEO.

“This year our team has innovated and launched several new digital tools to support our customers and streamline their operations. We have focused on how to drive engagement and simplify interactions for our customers, and it is so gratifying to see our employees champion this direction forward.’’

PLM continues to implement new ways to improve efficiency and customer service. Recently the company launched computerized inspections of leased vehicles to streamline and integrate operations. MyPLM, a secure, online customer platform, has released new enhancements to manage invoices, rental reservations, damage notifications, and ColdLink telematics for trailer location, temperature monitoring, mileage, and more, PLM said.

Among recent product launches, the company introduced Zero Emissions trailers, the only California Air Resources Board (CARB)-compliant refrigerated units for multi- and single-temperature applications, and PLM TrustLink, a comprehensive, cloud IoT management platform that provides real-time, track and trace capabilities for the sensitive cold supply chain.
