Refrigerated delivery companies that must keep their onboard inventory safe—and want to run their businesses more profitably—can achieve both goals thanks to the wired SureTempGPS temperature sensing, tracking, and security capability from Tracking Systems Inc.
The powerful device works in conjunction with Tracking Systems’ GPS fleet management application, collecting and transmitting exact temperature, location, and security information on every vehicle, every five minutes to protect equipment and inventory. SureTempGPS also calculates and transmits average hourly temperature by vehicle.
Power outage? Compressor failure? No worries. SureTempGPS has the ability to set and monitor high and low temperature thresholds, alerting the user—by cell phone, e-mail, or both—whenever refrigerated air varies from pre-set degrees.

By identifying in real time which vehicle is at risk, fleet personnel can take immediate action to eliminate potential losses.
