Refrigerated Goods Carrier Uses RFID to Stop Loading Errors

Trailiner, a U.S refrigerated goods carrier, recently announced that it is employing radio frequency identification to prevent loading and transportation errors, while saving the cost of manning its yard gate 24 hours a day.

The RFID system, provided by QuikQ, lets Trailiner manage yard access and prevent trailer loading and transportation errors using the same QuikQ RFID tags that its drivers utilize to refuel their trucks at stations owned by Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores, an Oklahoma-based company that operates a chain of more than 370 truck stops and convenience stores located in 40 states.

Trailiner provides refrigerated shipping services in 48 states. Its fleet of 200 tractors and 300 trailers hauls commodities ranging from produce and groceries to pharmaceuticals and retail goods. The company operates an active storage yard in Springfield, Mo., at which tractors come and go 24/7 to pick up or drop off refrigerated trailers.
