Cooltrax, a global leader in temperature control monitoring and reporting, will deploy its Fresh inTransit technology within new refrigerated containers purchased by Canadian Pacific Railway (CP).

The new containers feature a slimmer design refrigeration unit that allows for loading of up to two additional pallets, while also using a greener refrigerant that improves overall operating performance. Adding Cooltrax technology to this innovative design allows for enhanced visibility into temperature ranges, which is critical for products that require temperature-controlled environments for shipping, handling and storage. 

“Cooltrax recognizes that shippers and transportation providers face growing scrutiny in ensuring that product temperatures are maintained and monitored throughout the entire cold chain logistics process. We are delighted that our Fresh inTransit technology has been selected to further advance the leadership position Canadian Pacific has taken to drive enhanced visibility and improved reliability for the overall market,” says Mike Sharpe, president, Cooltrax North America. 

“Our primary focus at CP is to offer reliable, efficient services that help our customers achieve their objectives, which include delivery of products and services across many geographic regions,” adds Jonathan Wahba, vice president, sales and marketing–intermodal, CP. “Installing Cooltrax technology will deliver an unprecedented level of innovation, and more importantly, give CP temperature visibility and control, which is crucial as the industry is facing growing challenges to ensure products are handled and delivered safely and within required temperature ranges.”
