WAM Technologies Launches Cold-Chain Tracking Service

WAM Technologies LLC, along with its affiliate Mark-it Services (MIS), have launched a means of monitoring the status of perishable cargoes.

The ReeferWatch Global Cargo Monitoring Service gives clients of WAM's cloud-based asset-management platform, known as M2Connect, access to MIS's reefer-monitoring personnel and processes. The MIS team will watch live reefer load data captured by the M2Connect system on a round-the-clock basis, or as required by the client. MIS will be able to remotely adjust out-of-spec temperature settings via M2Connect, and can alert clients and their nominated subcontractors when physical intervention is required anywhere in the world. Incidents might include a temperature deviation, equipment failure, unplugged reefer container or genset with no power. Users will also be warned of any digression from scheduled transport touring and depot, terminal or distribution-center locations, using M2Connect's geofencing capabilities. The new global "concierge" service draws on MIS's ReeferWatch software and Intermodal Coldchain Management Services for reefer containers and related assets moving across the North American intermodal transport network.
