Dubbed Connect Cold, the new platform not only provides traditional telematics benefits such as measuring driver behaviour and fuel efficiency, but it also enables operators to continuously track temperatures in chilled units and receive immediate, geolocated warnings should the temperature move outside set limits. The system will adapt dynamically to the temperature set on the cold group inside the refrigerated vehicle or trailer.

Masternaut CEO, Dhruv Parekh said: “We have been working on developing this offer for a number of years, with some of our key cold-chain customers. Now, we are able to offer this as a complete package to all operators, opening up the benefits of continuous temperature tracking and measurement, along with all the traditional functions offered by our telematics software.

“Improving the cold chain plays an important role in improving business efficiency, as well as delivering a much larger societal impact. We look forward to working with individuals in this industry to understand how we can improve operations together.”
