Safefreight's Smartfleet technology will be deployed on 90 trailers in the Sobeys fleet which delivers temperature sensitive food products to 189 retail locations and three distribution centers in Western Canada.
Sobeys has the ability to track vehicles by location, audit inventory movement between distribution centers and store locations and monitor up to three temperature zones within their refrigerated transport trailers.
In addition, Sobeys will also be monitoring the open/closed status of trailer doors to determine if temperature sensitive food shipments have been exposed to any potentially unsafe conditions en route.
The SmartFleet diagnostic interface also provides Sobeys with fleet reports online that summarize important asset specific information including summaries for working hours and idling time, trip details, a stop/go activity report and vehicle history.
PepsiCo Signs Agreement To Use CombineNet Solution
PepsiCo has signed a three-year license agreement to use CombineNet's Truckload Manager to source the company's North American truckload transportation network.
PepsiCo's North American truckload network includes all inbound and outbound truckload shipments for Quaker Tropicana Gatorade, Frito-Lay North America and Pepsi Cola North America, consisting of 8,000 lanes of traffic and a multi-million dollar spend.
Delivered via CombineNet's Advanced Sourcing Application Platform (ASAP), Truckload Manager is a sourcing tool that will provide PepsiCo with the flexibility and analysis capabilities to optimize its transportation network, obtain the required service and increase supply chain efficiency.
PepsiCo previously optimized its network by using CombineNet's advanced sourcing technologies for its North American truckload transportation network in 2005. The growth of its businesses and the need to increase efficiencies spurred the decision to implement the advanced solution.
