Kriska's Reefer Fleet Gets Real-Time Cold Chain Security

TORONTO, ON — Kriska Holdings Limited’s entire fleet of refrigerated trailers will be equipped with the ibright refrigerated telematics system from International Telematics (ITC), Kriska said Friday.

"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."

Reefer Sales and 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.

"Kriska has been a very important transport refrigeration customer for a long time and the ibright telematics system is a natural extension of our core product line, able to monitor truck and trailer reefers as well as heaters,” said Brad Otsuka, business development manager at Reefer Sales and Service. "

“Customers like Kriska are recognizing the benefit of choosing an industry leading telematics product delivered and supported by their reefer dealer, giving them a competitive edge in cold chain compliance, customer satisfaction, and increased operational efficiencies positively affecting the bottom line,” Otsuka added.

Kriska is a family owned Canadian business, delivering dry and temperature controlled truckload products in Canada and the U.S. They’ve won Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies 13 times since they were founded in 1978.
