Increasing concerns for food safety will spur the demand for refrigerated vehicles

Refrigerated transportation is a critical link in the overall cold chain logistic operations. The localization of perishable commodities, growing population, coupled with rise in freight transportation due to economic development, has fueled the market for refrigerated transportation. Freight operators have also invested in the replacement of the equipment used for refrigerated transportation. In countries such as China and India, the current vehicle fleet is proving to be insufficient, given the high levels of population and rising per capita income. Government is facing a challenge of food wastage and initiatives are being undertaken by various government agencies to preserve the quality of the food during storage and distribution. Quality of food consumed is also a priority for the end users in the wake of increasing income. Initiatives for food security and changing perceptions of the end users are estimated to drive the demand for refrigerated vehicles.

Increase in Demand for Frozen Perishables

Globally, shifts in economic, social, and demographic trends are bound to put pressure on food suppliers. These changes will reshape the consumption pattern and consumer perception of frozen foods. The projected growth of frozen foods is promising, with growth opportunities from emerging markets such as the countries of the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.

As frozen foods have a longer shelf life, they are preferred when climatic conditions affect crop productivity. Food manufacturers include frozen foods in processed and packaged foods to provide consumers with food products at affordable prices. Freezing techniques provide the perfect solution to move food from the farmer’s market to the supermarket by improving affordability, accessibility, and preventing loss of food.

In the frozen food category, there is a huge opportunity in developing countries and developed countries. In developing markets such as India, China, and Latin American countries, the growing incomes are leading to growth in the middle-class population who are eager to try out different ethnic and international cuisine. The growth of service sectors such as fast food chains, quick service restaurants, and hypermarkets are accelerating the growth of frozen foods.

Software designers raise funds for baby hospice

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

TruTac, the leading transport and logistics software designers have raised £1,060 for Zoё’s Place Baby Hospice, a registered charity who provide palliative (one-to-one care), respite and end-of-life care for babies and infants aged from birth to five years.

Mary Hodges, who is an analyst with TruTac, raised the funds at the company’s Coventry headquarters during the last year by running a tuck shop and various other activities, including raffles and competitions.

Zoё’s Place Receptionist and Maintenance Manager Debra Lacey recently accepted a special cheque from TruTac on behalf of the Fundraising Team. Muna Chauhan, Corporate Manager thanked Mandy and her colleagues for their fund-raising efforts.

“Everybody from TruTac has been very supportive and generous towards Zoë’s Place and the care we provide” said Muna from the Coventry hospice. “The care and respite provided by the hospice is greatly helped by donations of this sort. We need more and more local business like TruTac to come on board and help us reach our target of £1.3 million. We are truly grateful for all the support, the donation has provided an additional FORTY TWO hours of care, which is truly wonderful”.

Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice was founded by its Chairman of Trustees, Professor Jack Scarisbrick MBE in 1995. He identified that many families, with children suffering from life limiting or life threatening conditions, were desperately in need of specialist facilities where their children could receive respite or palliative care.

Consequently, the idea of a Baby Hospice was born and fittingly the name Zoë’s Place was chosen since Zoë is the Greek word meaning ‘Gift of Life’.

The first Hospice was opened in Liverpool. Its opening signified the beginning of a unique and much needed service. Then, in 2004 a second Zoë’s place was opened in Middlesbrough and in 2011 the third opened in Coventry.

TruTac software suite provides compliance and control for Barnack Transport

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

Peterborough’s Barnack Storage and Logistics is part of the wider Barnack Group which was first established in 1986. 30 years on, it set out to complete its full ‘farm-to-folk’ service provision with its own in-house transport arm, Barnack Transport Services, under the stewardship of Transport Manager Maurice Lane. One of the first things he did was turn to TruTac for help with compliance.

161116-trutac-software-suite-provides-compliance-and-control-for-barnack-transport“I’d seen TruTac’s products demonstrated previously and was very impressed with the set up” Maurice explains, “so when I changed job to come to Barnack I contacted them directly and asked them to come and talk to us.”  As a new start up, there was a lot to get in place in time for the May 2016 launch. “We now use pretty much everything TruTac do” Maurice enthuses. “We use TruControl for driver-hours analysis, TruLicence for checking and verification of employees’ entitlement to drive, and the digicard-based TruTime for clocking in and out.”

Between them, Maurice says these three components are saving him both time and worry. “The automated reports we get on a weekly basis give me a quick view of how we’re performing and whether we’ve got any issues needing attention, while the desktop view via the Dashboard makes it very clear as to what the more detailed situation is at the touch of a button” he says.

The TruTac software is also very easy to use. “Even when you go in to look at issues in depth, pulling up the various reports and charts available, again it’s very clear to navigate, a very well thought out system.”

All in all, Maurice Lane is so impressed with what he’s seen so far of TruTac’s capabilities he’s now starting to roll out the final piece in the jigsaw: TruChecks – which allows drivers to record the completion of each step of their daily vehicle checks and report any defects in real time via an app on their mobile phone. “Initially we had agency drivers rather than our own full time people, but that’s starting to change now, so we’ll be implementing TruChecks in the next three to four weeks” he confirms. “From my perspective the whole TruTac system gives me everything I require as a Transport Manager to keep an eye on what is happening in our operation and engage with what needs to be done.”

On the basis of application, the meat, fish & seafood segment is projected to dominate the cold chain market

The meat, fish & seafood segment has been estimated to lead the market in terms of value. The fruits & vegetables application segment of the global cold chain market is expected to grow at comparatively higher CAGR due to the rise in awareness of health products.

ss

Frozen products are the most-widely consumed type of products

In 2014, the frozen segment accounted for the largest share in the cold chain market in terms of value. However, the chilled segment is projected to grow at comparatively higher CAGR due to the increasing demand for low temperatures at the time of storage, handling, distribution, retail display, and consumer storage.

Increasing health-consciousness among the consumers in developed and developing countries to boost the cold chain market

Countries in the Asia-Pacific, Latin American, and the Middle East regions are prospering in terms of the increasing usage of cold chain in the food industry. The rising population levels have also led to the rise in demand for processed and convenience foods, which is in turn driving the market for cold chain of perishable food products.

CRTS ‘pin-drop’ control with Verilocation vehicle tracking

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

Cornwall Refrigerated Transport Services report greater visibility and control for their Cornwall and West Devon operations since installing real-time GPS tracking from Verilocation Tracking Solutions.

150915 - CRTS 'pin-drop' control with Verilocation vehicle trackingBased in Bodmin, Cornwall, CRTS provide quick-response, 24 hour assistance for all temperature controlled transport, including sea containers, portable cold stores and drilling rigs. Aside from fridge repairs and maintenance servicing, CRTS also offers a service and repair facility for bus and coach air–conditioning, refrigerated trailer rental and refrigerated vehicle bodywork repairs.

“With such a diverse range of services and a relatively wide area to cover, we realised that a more efficient method of tracking and planning our jobs was required for our mobile workshop fleet” says Managing Director of CRTS, Tim Edwards. “That is where Verilocation came in.”

With the Verilocation ‘Pin-Drop’ facility, CRTS can instantly flag locations across the counties and more accurately provide customers with an estimated arrival time for their breakdown or service requirement. A quick reference to the control screen will determine the location of each service vehicle and the optimum route and journey time can be determined from here. This provides the company with much greater visibility of fleet and accountability to their customers.

“We can also monitor all of our vehicle activities, including speed, mileage, idling and, of course, location, at any time”, continues Tim. “This is an asset, not just for keeping an eye on the fleet but also for monitoring driver behaviour. The tracking system produces an ongoing ‘score’ for each driver which has encouraged a sense of competition among the engineers to be the best. The effect has been to educate on more economic driving styles, maintain an efficient level of service and also to help keep vehicle running costs down.”

CRTS is also able to download historical location and journey information from each service vehicle remotely at any time. “As we provide a 24 hour service, there is always an engineer on standby. Using the tracking reports we can see if an engineer has been called out during the night which means we do not have to disturb them during their rest period, but still know exactly where they have been working and when. We simply log-in and retrieve the information.” Adds Tim.

After seeing the benefits of the Verilocation system for themselves and their customers and recognising the growing need for full fleet visibility and security, CRTS decided to expand their services. The Company now offers a wide range of vehicle electrical and transport solutions, including tracking services and temperature monitoring with Verilocation.

“We strive to provide a broad range of services and the Verilocation temperature monitoring system is particularly relevant for many of our existing customers who deliver temperature sensitive goods.” Available through CRTS, the system enables operators to monitor the load temperature of any vehicle in real time. “Via SMS or email, an automatic alert can be sent to the operator’s control office with information regarding any deviations from the fridge’s defined set points.” Additionally, the system notifies when doors are open and for how long. All useful information, which provides a proof-of-journey audit whenever it might be required.

RS Components introduces Timestrip indicators for convenient asset monitoring and maintenance

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someone

Smart chemistry provides accurate, intuitive, at-a-glance time or time/temperature alerts in a convenient single-use label

OXFORD, UK, July, 2015 RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has introduced Timestrip time lapse indicators which are visual reminders for timely replacement or servicing and Timestrip PLUS temperature-threshold indicators, which enable convenient and cost-effective monitoring of temperature sensitive perishables.

Patent protected Timestrip time lapse indicators are activated with finger pressure and fixed like a label to the item being monitored. A red colour moves irreversibly against a scale to reach the end when the specified duration expires. 1, 3, 6, and 12-month versions are available, accurate to within ±15% (when used at room temperature), making them ideal for numerous professional and domestic applications. These include simple visual reminders to replace filters or other components in accordance with manufacturer-recommended cycles, or to perform regular maintenance such as heater descaling, inspection of electrical appliances, or servicing of industrial equipment.

Timestrip PLUS temperature-threshold indicators irreversibly show the length of time an item has been exposed above a pre-set temperature threshold. They are ideal for verifying compliance with regulated standards and are used widely for monitoring products whose quality or fitness for use is affected by excess temperature such as pharmaceuticals, perishables such as foodstuffs, and industrial or laboratory chemicals.  Temperature and time indications are accurate to within ±1°C and ±15% respectively.  They are inert until activated and each unit has a unique serial code, which helps manage large numbers of assets. Thresholds of 8C, 10C, 25C and 30C are available.

Compared to alternatives such as written maintenance sheets or electronic reminders, Timestrip indicators are direct, intuitive, and provide an instantaneous at-a-glance indication when action is due or if storage conditions have been breached. They are splashproof, can be stored unused at room temperature, and can be self-affixed to individual products or on packs or pallets.  These compelling and cost-effective indicators support efforts to maximise product quality or improve the performance and reliability of a wide range of equipment, resulting in better end-user experiences.

Harrison Solway take ‘fast- track’ Krone Trailers

Harrison Solway take ‘fast- track’ Krone Trailers as pallet numbers rise

Harrison Solway, the Hull based distribution and warehousing specialists have recently expanded their trailer fleet with the addition of six Profi Liner curtainsiders from Krone, which, says the company are needed to keep up with the continuing increase in pallet movements for their customers throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.

A founder mKroneember of Pallet Track, the UK’s fastest growing pallet network, Harrison Solway is now in its 15th year and says the company is growing all the time. Much of the work is for a national supplier of modular bathrooms, although virtually all types of palletised cargo can be handled by Harrison Solway’s nationwide distribution fleet and 120k sq. ft. of secure warehousing. The company can store and control up to 10,000 pallets at any given time.

“We have built our operation on sound practice and reliability. It’s what our customers and the industry expect.” says Director Lee Solway, “Key to this is having the flexibility to handle a cross-section of customer requirements with speed and efficiency, while ensuring maximum safety and load security at all times. We can accommodate customers with as few as 5 or as many as 1,500 pallets per week, but whatever the throughput , the level of service must remain the same. ”

To this end, Harrison Solway required a curtainsider which enabled them to load through the roof from either end of the trailer as well as through the rear and sides, using forklifts or cranes according to the product. Furthermore, the company required additi831114 Harrison Solway take 'fast-track' Krone Trailers -Paul Harrison left, Lee Solway right.onal internal loading height, multiple strapping points for load security and the facility to strap from inside the curtain when it is closed. The objective being to increase load safety, add flexibility and speed up turnaround times.

“Initially, we hired a Profi Liner to test things out and after three months we were convinced that this was the way to go.” adds Lee Solway, “The advantages over a conventional curtainsider are numerous.” Krone’s Multi Lock strapping system is, according to Lee Solway, an outstanding feature which keeps every load ‘safe and secure’. The sliding roof meanwhile, adds a further advantage by opening from both ends.

“Our policy is to keep in tune with new systems and technology.”  continues Lee, “This is important, not just to remain ahead of the competition but to ensure we deliver the very best service to our diverse client base. For example, the systems we use to support our ‘Just-in-time’ delivery network include: – end-to-end traceability (real time, track and trace); specialist consolidation; contract packing and stock auditing. Moreover, our vehicle fleet is equipped with satellite tracking and in-cab communications to ensure tight control and fast response whenever it’s needed.”

During initial consultations, Krone worked closely with us and provided in-depth advice, which enabled us to reach our optimum specification. Also worthy of note is the fact that we only had to wait 6 weeks for delivery. Fast- track by any standards.”
