Navman Wireless’ Temperature Monitoring solution provides real-time remote data capture of temperature in refrigerated compartments found in vans and trucks. It gives fleet managers complete visibility of the storage conditions to ensure temperature controlled loads are delivered efficiently, on time and in optimal condition. The solution enables fleet managers to significantly reduce the chance of delivery rejection, a critical factor in ensuring a healthy bottom line. It also provides accurate historical reporting of temperature data disclosing the exact date, time, location and vehicle. Such highly valuable information provides managers with hard facts for the purpose of reporting, assisting with customer enquiries as well as contributing to the optimisation in management of refrigerated vehicles.
Sentinel Driver Fatigue Solution:
Driver fatigue is one of the greatest safety risks the transport industry is currently tackling. Navman Wireless has a strategic partnership with Transtech Driven to provide a market-leading driver fatigue management system. It enables organisations to take a more proactive approach to manage and monitor adherence to driver fatigue policies and meet their fatigue management obligations, irrespective of whether they operate under standard hours, BFM or AFM. The solution is integrated into the Navman Wireless’ GPS fleet management solution and works by sending automated fatigue management alerts to vehicle operators in accordance with the regulations applicable to their organisation. The solution allows fleet managers to monitor driver behaviour in near real-time and take proactive steps to remediate non-compliance with legislation and company policies.
