Horizon Lines, Inc. announced the immediate availability of the ReeferPlus(R)GPS container tracking and shipment monitoring solution for refrigerated ocean containers moving between the continental US and Puerto Rico. This innovative solution is designed to improve the visibility and security of high-value perishable cargo requiring cold chain logistics; a term used to describe the maintenance of product temperature through the entire transport chain from packing to delivery.
Key capabilities of ReeferPlus(R)GPS include GPS-enabled real-time container tracking; in-box sensors reporting temperature, atmosphere and security updates via the web; and remote monitoring and adjusting of reefer conditions with one computer click.
The ReeferPlus(R)GPS solution uses Impeva Labs’ Global Sentinel Unit, which links multiple two-way communication channels, real-time wireless sensors and a direct two-way interface to the refrigerated container’s controller. With continuous real-time supply chain visibility and remote configuration, Horizon Lines’ ReeferPlus(R)GPS customers can track, trace, monitor and take corrective action from their offices anywhere in the world.
“ReeferPlus(R)GPS is a major advance in cold chain logistics,” said Jacob Wegrzyn, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Puerto Rico Division for Horizon Lines, LLC. “We have been developing and testing this solution for two years in the Puerto Rico trade lane to offer high-value perishables shippers the visibility and control they need for maximum quality control and security.”
“We are very pleased that our collaboration with Horizon has resulted in the launch of ReeferPlus(R)GPS,” said Tony Moroyan, CEO of Impeva Labs. “Using the latest technologies, ReeferPlus(R)GPS is the most capable and advanced solution for global tracking, cargo monitoring and container security. This comprehensive and flexible system offers reefer users outstanding value in confirming cargo integrity across the entire logistics supply chain. This puts Horizon Lines in a clear leadership position.”
