Blue Tree Systems, Inc. a provider of trailer tracking, reefer monitoring and in-cab fleet management systems, announced food ingredients and flavor products manufacturer Kerry Foods has completed testing and will purchase its newly released Temperature Probe to continuously deliver accurate cargo temperatures.

Blue Tree says its Temperature Probe is a robust, tapered steel probe that delivers quick verification of cargo temperatures. The Probe has vividly colored cables to easily locate in poor visibility conditions and is 11 feet in length to ensure a variety of flexible placement options. It is made of high-grade materials for application in harsh-use conditions, and is engineered to withstand cutting and abrasion, in addition to a high resistance to oil, extreme temperatures and high voltage.

Kerry supplies over 15,000 food, food ingredients and flavor products to customers in more than 140 countries worldwide. The Group has manufacturing facilities in 25 different countries and international sales offices in 20 other countries. Kerry foods produces ingredients such as batter mixes, bread crumbs and other dry ingredients and wet ingredients such as sauces, pastes, marinades and butter products.

“In-transit monitoring of precise product temperatures and not just overall trailer temperatures is becoming increasingly in demand,” said Charlie Cahill, CEO of Blue Tree Systems. “A challenge for fleets in the past has been finding a product probe that combines the level of ruggedness, precision, and affordability that is necessary. Blue Tree has answered that need.”
