Oct 6, 2009 9:02 AM
Alanco Technologies Inc announced that its StarTrak Systems subsidiary has entered into a four-year contract valued in excess of $3 million with FFE Transportation Services Inc for fleetwide deployment of StarTrak’s ReeferTrak reefer monitoring and management services. FFE is a provider of refrigerated transportation and logistics services.
The new contract will begin immediately to outfit about 2,500 of FFE’s refrigerated trailers with StarTrak’s new ReeferTrak RT-6000 communicator/modem. StarTrak will also provide FFE with its menu of reefer network management and control data services over an initial four-year period.
FFE primarily chose the ReeferTrak service due to the platform’s automatic delivery of critical information to the firm’s central operations. This information includes real-time temperature profiles against cargo set points, refueling verification, assessorial measurements, out-of-route monitoring, critical load information, trailer inventory management, and other relevant operational data.
StarTrak and FFE first partnered in 2005 to pioneer management of highly sensitive refrigerated specialty product freight shipments with FFE initially implementing StarTrak’s satellite-based communicating network system. The new fleetwide ReeferTrak deployment will be an advanced cellular-based system that provides increased benefits and flexibility. FFE has strived to extend the focus of its operations from management of the driver to management of shipments, and this new investment is designed to help fulfill this objective.
