CarrierWeb recently announced that Earl L Henderson Trucking has selected the provider’s refrigerated tracing and management products. The decision to select CarrierWeb was made after an extensive pilot program of several installed units was completed at Earl Henderson.
“We were looking for more than just a trailer-tracking device,” says Josh Kaburick, chief operating officer of Salem, Ill.-based Earl Henderson. “We wanted a system that would integrate into our refrigerated control systems to report alarms and set points, as well as know where our equipment was every hour. CarrierWeb has proven to be the industry leader for us by delivering everything we were looking for — technology, information and value.”
During the pilot program, CarrierWeb provided tracking and temperature status information to Earl Henderson operations personnel and allowed them to set alarms that notified operations personnel when a temperature was out of range. CarrierWeb also completed integration into the Carrier Transicold refrigerated control module, which also sends current temperature range set points and changes, as well as status information such as master switch status, engine on/off, chiller on/off, door open/close status, hitching status, engine performance and fuel consumption.
“We are excited and pleased that we were able to fill the communications needs of Earl Henderson with our always-on system, which provides instant status update and minute-by-minute tracking” says John Marous, president of Atlanta-based CarrierWeb. “We feel that with our online management and reporting system, which can be accessed from anywhere via the Internet, our customers will be able to manage their business much easier and with more real-time information than every before.”
With the CarrierWeb solution, Earl Henderson operations personnel will be able to view their trailer assets, be alerted when a trailer is spotted but the refrigerated unit is on and running, see the current set point, and be alerted if the set point has been changed. Furthermore, with the ability to set a temperature range to be monitored, the CarrierWeb system will alert the customer if the temperature is out of range. Reports also can be generated for historical information concerning where the trailer was delivered, with the date and time of the customer delivery, which can be used for more accurately determining detention times, the company says.
