PAR Logistics Management Systems (PAR LMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR), announced that Alliance Shippers Inc will outfit its entire fleet of 1,700 refrigerated trailers with PARís Two-Way Monitoring and Control System.
Alliance is one of North Americaís largest independently owned providers of global logistics and transportation services. Through more than 50 regional and international sales and operating facilities strategically located in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, Alliance offers shippers worldwide a full-service/single-source team approach to providing The Perfect Shipment via rail, highway, ocean, and air transportation services.
PARís system provides real-time temperature monitoring on a continual basis during transit over the road or rails and provides immediate alerts to Allianceís fleet operations of any variances in the temperature or refrigerated trailerís operating mode.
ďAlliance was a very early adopter of reefer monitoring technology, and when it came time to upgrade our equipment we evaluated all the providers in the industry,Ē said Ed Wright, Alliance Shippers vice-president, Refrigerated Division. ďWe decided to switch to PARís monitoring system for their technology, their willingness to learn our business, and their outstanding customer service.Ē
PARís tracking and information system generates information needed to monitor and control refrigerated trailer temperatures, react and respond to alarms, and optimize logistics and management of cold chain assets and resources. Customized reporting provides users with alerts and alarms on variances to refrigerated trailer temperatures, operability, low fuel, abnormal/excessive fuel consumption, and excessive dwell time. If cold chain requirements call for temperature monitoring at the product level, PAR provides an independent hard-wired product temperature probe to monitor and report every 15 minutes.
