Werner Enterprises picks Orbcomm solution for cold chain monitoring

Jan. 15, 2015

Werner Enterprises is deploying a cold chain monitoring solution from Orbcomm in its over-the-road refrigerated fleet.

Werner uses Orbcomm’s cold chain telematics solution that provides comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services for its refrigerated trailers. The application includes Orbcomm’s proprietary hardware along with a web application with data reporting and analytics capabilities to increase in-transit visibility and efficiency of Werner’s refrigerated transport operations.

Werner will fully integrate the trailer data with its proprietary back-office platform to gain significant fuel savings, optimize temperature compliance and maximize asset utilization, Orbcomm said.

“We are pleased to be working with Werner, a technology leader in the transportation industry, to help them improve the efficiency of their cold chain operation and gain a stronger competitive edge in customer satisfaction and regulatory compliance,” said Marc Eisenberg, Orbcomm CEO. “Orbcomm’s advanced technology also offers Werner an added level of safety and security that we expect will translate into a positive impact on their bottom line through reduced fuel costs, maintenance and conservation of loads.”

“By utilizing Orbcomm’s state-of-the-art telematics solution, we can ensure the on-time delivery and product integrity of our customers’ temperature-controlled products – from fresh produce to frozen products to pharmaceuticals,” said Steve Phillips, senior vice president of equipment resources for Werner Enterprises, Inc. “Orbcomm’s tracking and monitoring solution provides complete visibility of our trailers and the cargo they are carrying throughout the supply chain so we can optimize use of our assets and provide our customers with best-in-class service, which is paramount to our business.”
