Chassis Tracking: 4 Ways Lack of Fleet Visibility is Costing You Money

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

trailer and chassis telematicsReal-time chassis tracking, monitoring and control is proven to enable better business planning, streamline operations, minimize theft, improve preventative maintenance and repair, and enhance customer service. With so much at stake, why are so many companies hesitant to adopt telematics technology for their chassis fleet operations? When put into those simple terms, outfitting a fleet of chassis may sound like a no-brainer, but there are many perceived barriers to entry that could prevent companies from doing so.

For companies looking to deploy a telematics solution to manage their chassis fleet, procurement becomes a potentially complicated and expensive process. Barriers to entry include cost, difficulty in understanding the technology and lack of quality customer support. This often results in fragmentation that prevents or impedes the process, often causing unnecessary technical challenges and unexpected expenses, which is even more problematic in an industry with paper-thin margins.

But having a comprehensive, reliable solution in place from one, experienced provider helps companies mitigate the multiple risks involved with leaving your assets unprotected.

Here are four ways lack of visibility into your chassis fleet can impact your bottom line:

1. Long dwell times
Optimizing chassis operations without readily accessible data is a complicated process that requires a great deal of manual effort. Even then, it’s near impossible to achieve maximum efficiency. When chassis are in dwell time, it means they are not on the road making money. Telematics solutions can keep you up-to-date how long an asset has been sitting unused and alert you in real-time when it has been sitting too long.

2. Improper distribution
Having either too many or not enough chassis distributed to a single geographical area reduces efficiency and increases costs. Moving chassis to a new location to re-balance your fleet requires labor, money and time. Additionally, the wrong chassis sent from the yard due to human error results in added costs and potential asset loss. Real-time data brings complete visibility to your chassis fleet, allowing for better planning and more effective utilization.

3. Asset misuse
The shipping industry in general has long been plagued by misuse of assets. Customers may not be taking proper care of your chassis, or improperly storing them in outside yards that put them at increased risk. If and when those chassis go missing, they must be written off for a loss. Alternately, drivers may be using your chassis for unauthorized runs, or your chassis disappears when passed to another driver at an international border. The right telematics solution can mitigate the risk of asset misuse almost entirely by tracking the whereabouts and location history of your chassis.

4. Competitive disadvantage
Data obtained through manual processes is likely not 100% accurate and is often outdated, hampering efficiency and putting companies who have been slow to adopt telematics technology behind the competition. On the flip side, companies that have implemented a good tracking solution are experiencing enhanced visibility into freight management operations, resulting in more accurate on-time deliveries, ETAs and in-route location updates for better customer service and satisfaction.

ORBCOMM’s GT 1100-CTS is designed specifically for chassis tracking and features ORBCOMM’s GT 1100 device combined with its PS 100 proximity sensor and custom mounting bracket.

The benefit of telematics
The biggest upside of adopting a good tracking solution is real-time visibility into where your chassis are and whether they are in use or not, which in turn improves operational efficiency, asset utilization and maintenance costs. Put simply, telematics helps you deploy your chassis more strategically and get them back quicker when they are not in use.

How RFID As A Service (RaaS) Can Accelerate Your RFID Application Deployments

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

rfid taggingRFID is an emerging, albeit mature, technology. There is certainly no dearth of hardware or software options in today’s RFID solution marketplace. There is an abundance of varying hardware options (frequencies, functionality and application relevance, economics, etc.), a wide variety of RFID software applications (middleware, line of business, etc.), and complex back-end integration issues — the result is that many companies are unable to find a single vendor who can cover all of their needs, and they therefore are forced to piece together multiple systems. The result is a marketplace shortage of complete, or hardware/software-matched, solutions that require minimal time and effort to prove, develop, and deploy.

Navigating this technology labyrinth is a challenge for first-time adopters as it puts a large premium on validating return on investment (ROI) for the internal business users and many times delays or makes such projects infeasible.

High Cost Of Technology Validation For Proof-Of-Concept

As chief RFID strategist for your company, it gets very frustrating trying to explain the value of technology adoption for your specific business process when the evaluation phase is as expensive as the actual full-fledged implementation of the project. In a world where business users are used to downloading evaluation software free-of-charge, trying to justify a six-figure cost for RFID application proof-of-concepts becomes a formidable challenge.

If there’s anything that puts the brakes on RFID implementations faster than technology issues, it’s the initial high costs associated with developing and deploying these applications within the four walls, much less across the enterprise. Hardware costs (and the services costs associated with installation, calibration, etc.), software licenses, additional server infrastructure, integration, and scalability quickly add up, creating a significant hurdle for internal project champions to make and sell the case for application adoption. Proving a concept through a full-scale pilot can be as costly as actual deployment, especially in enterprise applications, where value of adoption (ROI) is dramatically enhanced by the number of enabled ecosystem partners.

Definition Of RFID As A Managed Service

First we should perhaps define what is meant by RaaS — RFID applications as a service. Read more ›

Illuminating Reefer Monitoring Black Holes with the IoT: Transport Logistic 2017 Preview

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

vesselconnect-cropThe “black hole” of reefer monitoring has always been on the water. Historically, carriers have used manual data capture with engineers equipped with clipboards walking the decks and inspecting each reefer’s temperature periodically for set-point deviations and alarms.

In the 1980s, power line modem systems for on-vessel reefer monitoring were developed. These systems required that the vessel be equipped with extensive cabling and specialized data modems and all containers had to have a modem. With the advent of standards-based cellular GSM in reefer monitoring, the demand to use GSM on vessels emerged.

Leveraging advances in wireless technology, ORBCOMM’s VesselConnect enables end-to-end visibility of refrigerated containers transporting temperature-sensitive, high-value cargo across water, filling the traceability gap on vessels at sea.

We are looking forward to discussing VesselConnect and our other land-based tracking solutions at Transport Logistic 2017 trade show in Munich, Germany.

FSMA Compliance: 7 Features to Look for in a Temperature Management Solution

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

FSMA guide for food transportersThe US FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has introduced a series of stringent new requirements on food transporters, who are turning to technology to enable comprehensive temperature management and compliance in their fleets.

FSMA aims to ensure the safety of the food supply by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it. Published in March 2016, the final rule has been enforced since April 2017. The Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food, cited in the FSMA mandate, affects those involved in the transportation of temperature-controlled foods, including shippers, carriers, loaders and receivers.

The Sanitary Transportation rule introduces provisions for the design of trailers, new vehicle cleanliness standards, precooling and in-transit temperature monitoring requirements, training guidelines as well as data collection and record keeping stipulations.

Here are 7 FSMA Compliance Features to Look for in a Temperature Management Solution

1. Temperature Management

A comprehensive cold chain platform makes it easy for carriers to manage asset temperature with detailed reports, real-time alarms and interactive high-resolution temperature charts. With such a platform , you can continuously monitor cargo area temperature of single and multi-temperature trailers and receive alarms when conditions deviate from normal—temperature out of range, unit is turned off, low battery levels are detected and more.

Dynamic temperature graphs with option to download, email and schedule

Dynamic temperature graphs with option to download, email and schedule

2. Remote Reefer Control

Look for devices that connect directly to a reefer’s microprocessor to ensure accurate temperature readings and two-way reefer control. This will enable you to adjust temperature settings, turn a reefer unit on or off and initiate a Pretrip or a defrost from a centralized location.

3. Trailer Precooling

Choose a solution that sends you notifications when a reefer has reached adequate precool levels or when it fails to precool. You should also be able to configure the system to automatically send precool notifications to third parties to streamline chain of custody as cargo moves across the cold chain.

Precool status reports and notifications

Precool status reports and notifications

4. Temperature Certification and Data Collection

Make sure that you are able to automatically capture and store temperature records that can be quickly delivered to shippers, loaders and receivers as proof of precool and in-transit temperature compliance. Data should be able to be analyzed through interactive charts or downloaded to PDF or Excel.

5. Records

Ensure that 90-day historical data is always available at your fingertips. Beyond 90 days, your system shoiuldarchive records for 12 months. Data feeds for third-party or proprietary systems should also be possible, to facilitate the seamless exchange of information.

6. Documentation

Your solution should offer a centralized, easy-to-update document repository to help you store and manage sanitation checklists, wash-out records and more.

7. FSMA Compliance On the Go

Any modern temperature management solution worth its salt will have a mobile app that makes it possible for you to manage refrigerated assets on the go. With it, you can monitor temperature and alarms, receive precool notifications and more, all from the palm of your hand.

What the Next Stage of the IoT Means for Supply Chain Management

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

iot supply chain webinarSupply chain managers need to get ready for the next stage of the Internet of Things (IoT). Business research company IHS Markit forecasts that the IoT market will grow from an installed base of 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 30.7 billion devices in 2020 and 75.4 billion in 2025.

We are at a very exciting phase in how IoT technology and solutions are being deployed in supply chain and related operations.

By incorporating IoT technologies and solutions into the supply chain network, we can seamlessly connect business processes, such as shipping and receiving, with people, data and things, such as pallets, containers and transportation trailers; to run these networks at maximum efficiency.

What is meant by the next generation? It describes IoT products and solutions that will be more software centric with robust cloud technology and an open architecture that enables connectivity of fixed and mobile devices, sensors and actuators. The next generation technology will provide for multi-tenancy or the ability to easily encompass ecosystem participants such as customers and suppliers within the IoT network, and the flexibility to work with different IoT devices and technologies. With this kind of platform in place and the choices of devices and technologies multiplying rapidly, IoT can become an integral part of the business, helping supply chain managers to comply with regulations, link with and provide benefits to their customers and suppliers, increase efficiency, break down silos and launch new business services.

“With the right vision, right technology and the right vendors in place, the IoT has the potential to become central to a customer’s supply chain”

supply-chain-flowIncreased Visibility

As supply chains become more complex, managers need to know what is going on across their entire network, communicating with suppliers and customers at the same time. Any weak points in the chain can cause problems. The importance of the automation of supply chain hand offs, where processes between different lines of business meet, such as warehouse and transportation operations, or where a supplier’s process meets a customer’s process. Processes at hand-offs are typically manual and often lack visibility and control, resulting in errors that can have serious negative downstream effects. For example, a cold chain process, when perishable products are loaded from a warehouse onto a reefer. Despite having good temperature control, the reefer’s door could be open for too long, affecting the quality of the product loaded closer to the door.

Improved IoT technology makes locating and monitoring these errors far simpler and, crucially, it can break down information silos, making it easier to comply with rules such as the FSMA regulation in the U.S, which require visibility and traceability throughout the supply chain. It can also help build a better relationship with customers at the end of the supply chain, for example by making it much easier and quicker to do a recall in the event of product contamination. Ultimately it is supply chain execution that can really determine customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Pharma Cold Chain Logistics: Going the Extra Mile

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

Cold chain compliance webinarAs the weather finally starts to get warmer in Europe, thoughts turn to Munich and the upcoming Transport Logistic tradeshow, one of the world’s largest meetings for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management professionals. This year, the show takes place from May 9-12 and will be as lively, crowded and thought-provoking as ever, with a major focus on digital connectivity, data-driven logistics and end-to-end supply chain visibility, leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT).

Increasing regulatory demands and continued volume growth in cold chain logistics worldwide is spurring significant development in smart solutions for tracking and monitoring food, pharma and other perishable goods from origin to destination. ORBCOMM will be at the centre of the cold chain debate in Munich – showcasing the latest IoT telematics, web and mobile technologies and explaining how they can help businesses to comply and thrive in a regulated, competitive environment. Our on-demand Cold Chain Compliance webinar also delves into the challenges facing shippers, land and ocean carriers and logistics providers.

In the European pharmaceutical sector, the EU raised the bar on transport and logistics when it revised the Good Distribution Practice Guidelines (2013/C 343/01) (GDP) in 2013. These guidelines recognised the complex nature of supply chains and laid down new rules for transporting products, especially with regard to verified temperature control.

ORBCOMM Europe has worked with companies to help them respond to these guidelines and set up compliant solutions. But it has not just been about compliance and oversight. Thinking about temperature control in a more granular and detailed manner has helped businesses to operate more efficiently, spot opportunities to make savings and even launch new products.

Transmed-case-study_scanningFor example, we teamed up with transmed Transport GmbH in Germany to see how it could most effectively comply with GDP for last mile distribution of drugs to pharmacies and dispensing doctors. transmed is the logistics and transport arm of the PHOENIX Group, Europe’s leading pharmaceutical wholesaler, supplying up to 140,000 different pharmaceutical items to some 60,000 customers from its network of 153 distribution centers. That’s a lot of products to distribute and monitor.

To comply with GDP, transmed had to invest in new refrigerated and air conditioned vehicles and revised operating procedures. We worked with them to develop an integrated system for end-to-end temperature management using our Euroscan MX2 and X3 real-time temperature monitoring and control devices and software interface.

eurscan x3 temperature recorder

ORBCOMM’s temperature recorders provide proof of an uninterrupted cold chain for pharmaceutical logistics and compliance.

As pharma shipments move through the full distribution chain the consignments are scanned, identified and matched to the relevant ORBCOMM device. This gave transmed a chance to see the entire cold chain in an integrated manner and grow its business working directly for pharmaceutical producers. Read more ›

Trailer Tracking White Paper: Transforming Dry Van Trailer Operations with the Internet of Things

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

dry van tracking white paperThe Internet of Things is changing the way businesses operate, the global freight market is no exception. Our latest white paper—Transforming Dry Van Trailer Operations with IoT Connectivity—explores key industry and technology trends driving the adoption of telematics for dry van road trailer equipment and the overall benefits to fleet operators. Here are some highlights:

Road Transport is King

According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the road transport industry generates $1.49 trillion in annual revenues worldwide, more than 50% of revenues generated by the whole global transportation and logistics market. While sea, air and rail transport play a key role, road transportation is driving the industry with the popular dry van trailer leading the charge.

Dry van trailers are used predominantly in mature industrialized markets—North America, Europe and Asia Pacific—and are becoming increasingly popular in fast developing markets for hauling a variety of cargoes used in domestic, cross-border and intercontinental trade.

As of 2014, there were 13.3 million units of all types being used globally for road transport, according to Berg Insight. North America represents about 30% of that market, followed by Asia with 26.4%, Europe with 18.8%, Latin America with 10.5%t, Middle East and Africa with 7.5 %, and Russia and CIS with 6.8%.

The dry van trailer is here to stay. According to the BCG, demand for new semi-trailers of all types is expected to grow at a 6.5% rate to $34.3 billion by 2020. Dry van trailers are expected to make up nearly 50% of the total as global trade continues to grow in both developed and emerging economies.

The Emergence of the Smart Trailer

IoT solutions are adding intelligence to road transport operations and ‘turning the lights on’ on cargo hauling equipment. Assets that once went dark while on the road or at a customer’s yard, can now report real-time location and status periodically or on demand. Berg estimates shipments of remote tracking systems with cellular and satellite connectivity totalled 800,000 in 2015, with trailer tracking accounting for 56.8% of deployments. The adoption of telematics devices is expected to continue to grow as Berg forecasts the trailer and cargo container tracking market will increase at a compound annual rate of 23.2% over the next few years to reach 8.1 million devices by 2020.

Pharmaceutical Transport: How transmed Delivers First to Last Mile GDP Solutions

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someonePrint this page

Discover how, as part of its new Good Distribution Practice (GDP) compliance solution, pharmaceutical transport specialist transmed Transport turned to ORBCOMM to develop an integrated system for end-to-end real-time temperature management and validation across its warehouses, distribution centers (DCs) and transport fleet…

ColdChain_2017_300-x-250Headquartered in Regensberg, Germany, transmed Transport GmbH specializes in the distribution of drugs and healthcare products to pharmacies, dispensing doctors, hospitals, medical centers and care homes. transmed is the logistics and transport arm of the PHOENIX Group, Europe’s leading pharmaceutical wholesaler, with annual revenues of EUR23.3bn as at 31/1/16 from operations in 26 countries. Active across West, Central, East and South East Europe, PHOENIX serves around 60,000 customers, supplying up to 140,000 different pharmaceutical items from its network of 153 distribution centers.

In its home market of Germany, transmed operates from three main temperature-controlled warehouse hubs, serving 20 regional DCs. Its fleet of 2,500 vehicles delivers goods around the clock both for its parent company and, more recently, under direct contract to pharmaceutical producers. The fleet ranges from the smallest caddy vehicles for local ‘milk run’ deliveries up to two hours; to mid-range vans up to 2.8 tons for longer-range operations; to temperaturecontrolled vans up to 3.5 tons for the longest distances, including overnight deliveries up to 1,000km and more.

pharma transport

The Challenge (and Opportunity)
In September 2013, the EU introduced its revised Good Distribution Practice (GDP) Guidelines (2013/C 343/01) aimed at maintaining the quality and integrity of medicinal products for human use right along the supply chain from manufacturer to patient.

pharma complianceThe updated guidelines recognized the increasingly complex, multi-party nature of modern pharmaceutical distribution networks and sought to provide a new framework for risk management and quality control. In particular, the 2013 Guidelines laid down new rules for transport, to protect medicinal products against breakage, adulteration and theft and, critically, “to ensure that temperature conditions are maintained within acceptable limits during transport.”

“This new stipulation for temperatures to be maintained and validated across the transport chain was a game-changer for pharmaceutical shippers and carriers alike,” says Stefan Butenholz, Regional Manager North for transmed. Read more ›
