Royal Food Import Corporation, an export firm specializing in the food market, has selected Savi Networks for its automated wireless monitoring service to improve the end-to-end visibility, security, and freshness of food products while in transit.
The initial phase of this three-year contract involves real-time tracking and security of fruit and vegetable products as they’re transported in cargo containers by truck, rail, and ocean vessel from production sources in Thailand and China to distribution centers in the United States.
In recent months, Savi Networks has signed several agreements for its SaviTrak intelligence service with businesses engaged in the transportation and distribution of food and beverage products, including Transmed Foods Inc, the US distribution arm of the Crespo Group.
“Royal Food is committed to providing our retail and restaurant customers with top-quality products at competitive prices, and we fully utilize state-of-the-art information systems such as SaviTrak to ensure product integrity from the field to the plate,” said Collin Tuthill, president of Royal Food Import. “The SaviTrak service embeds us with a competitive information advantage to help deliver fresh products when they’re wanted at the right price even if they’re shipped globally.”
A joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Hutchison Port Holdngs, Savi Networks improves the efficiency and security of global trade. SaviTrak is an intelligence service that uses reliable wireless shipment monitoring technology to provide shippers, logistics service providers, and terminal operators with accessible, precise, and actionable information.
