PFG selects CarrierWeb as vendor

CarrierWeb announced that PFG Customized Distribution, a division of Performance Food Group Company (PFG), has selected it as its vendor of truck mobile communications and of reefer command and control systems.

CarrierWeb said its CarrierMate system will facilitate managing mobile assets and driver hours of service at the nine locations of PFG Customized Distribution across the U.S., facilitating compliance with the recently introduced Electronic Logging Device mandate. And, according to the company, CarrierWeb’s ReeferMate will allow remote monitoring and management of the widely distributed reefer fleet of PFG Customized Distribution and will facilitate compliance with the Sanitary Transportation of Food portion of the Food Safety Modernization Act, which becomes fully effective in March 2016.

Donnie Bain, SVP business units at PFG Customized Distribution, noted that they had chosen CarrierWeb after an evaluation of multiple solutions because of the ease of deployment of the CarrierWeb solutions and the ability of CarrierWeb to customize the solution based on PFG's operational and strategic growth needs.

"CarrierWeb personnel addressed PFG needs in providing an HOS/DVIR solution that is easy to use for drivers and administrators,” Bain said. “We are impressed with the ability of CarrierWeb to address not only driver compliance, custom back office ERP integration, asset visibility for multi-stop deliveries but also provide a refrigerated trailer management solution that addressed our need for two-way refrigeration monitoring and communication. The refrigerated asset monitoring solution positions PFG for compliance with pending full implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations.”

“Fleets continue to seek technology to improve operational efficiency, safety, compliance and driver satisfaction.” said Jim Gamache, president and CEO of CarrierWeb. “CarrierWeb offers PFG Customized Distribution the best of both worlds — an in-cab solution to meet all needs of the ELD mandate in a driver friendly way, and a refrigerated telematics solution that makes FSMA compliance much easier while continuing to ensure PFG Customized Distribution’s customers the level of quality that they expect. The single platform offering of CarrierWeb for trucks, and refrigerated and dry trailers makes the CarrierWeb solution easy to adopt and integrate into legacy solutions.”
