Kriska selects International Telematics from Reefer Sales and Service to provide real-time cold chain security
TORONTO, On, December 27, 2013 - Kriska Holdings Limited (Kriska) and International Telematics Corporation (ITC) today announced the signing of a hardware and services agreement to equip Kriska's entire fleet of refrigerated trailers with the ibright® refrigerated telematics system.
Reefer Sales & Service is the largest dealer of the ibright® product in Canada, and will facilitate the installation and ongoing support across the Kriska fleet in the first quarter of 2014. "We have heard loud and clear from our food and pharmaceutical customers that cold chain security - both from a temperature abuse and tampering perspective - is of paramount concern," said Mark Seymour, CEO of Kriska. "The ibright® platform will allow our employees and our customers to see in real-time not only where their freight is, but also the current and past temperature history of the load, when and where the trailer was open, the health of the reefer including fuel levels, as well as an ability to remotely make changes to the reefer settings. We believe this added level of safety and security is appropriate given the tremendous importance of protecting the North American cold chain."
