Q. Why is it important to be a part of the Cold Chain Federation?

ORBCOMM can help Cold Chain Federation members meet their compliance, environmental, customer, reputational and efficiency goals by transporting food, pharmaceuticals and other products more safely using telematics. We offer peace-of-mind and transparency to manufacturers, shippers, wholesale distributors, hauliers and end customers, that products are and have been transported at appropriate, safe temperatures during their period of responsibility in the cold chain. With real time alerts and historical reporting, each party has the evidence to show that they have met their responsibilities. 

Q. What are ORBCOMM’s aspirations for the industry?

ORBCOMM focuses on helping fleets turn data into decisions. When it comes to our aspirations for the cold chain, data can be used to improve sustainability through better route planning, fewer empty miles and optimised reefer usage, resulting in lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions.
