Igloo Thermo Logistics, a leading temperature-controlled logistics company in the UK, has partnered with AddSecure to optimise its transport operations. With a fleet of 130 temperature-controlled vehicles that cover up to 90,000 miles per week, Igloo required a comprehensive telematics and temperature monitoring solution, as well as a vehicle camera safety system.
After evaluating multiple providers, Igloo selected AddSecure as the only supplier to offer telematics, remote temperature monitoring, and vehicle camera systems from one user-friendly platform. Each vehicle is equipped with live vehicle tracking and an EN12830 certified Transcan data logger. The transport team can monitor the fleet in real-time and proactively address any issues that may arise. Additionally, customers can access a full audit trail of each journey, complete with easy-to-interpret temperature graphs, and end-of-journey printouts for compliance with cold chain distribution regulations.
Igloo has also installed an integrated dual-camera dashcam system (forward-facing and driver-facing) in all its vehicles to reduce accident rates and lower insurance premiums. The cameras act as a deterrent for dangerous driving behaviours and provide evidence to support First Notification of Loss to Igloo’s insurance provider, expediting the claims process.
“Since implementing AddSecure’s connected fleet management and temperature monitoring solutions we have experienced a significant reduction in accident rates and insurance premiums. The improvements in safety, efficiency, compliance, and sustainability of our overall transport operations have given us a competitive edge in the industry,” explained Kuljinder Gossal, Operations and Group Fleet Manager at Igloo.
Igloo is committed to continued improvement and are currently working with AddSecure to upgrade its vehicle tracking units for enhanced driving behaviour monitoring, allowing for improved driver feedback and training. Additionally, the company is also looking to upgrade its camera systems to a multi-camera setup, including rear and side cameras and an in-cab monitor, for safer city driving and slow speed manoeuvrings.
Paul Lawrence, Managing Director at AddSecure UK commented, “The AddSecure solution has once again proven to be a valuable investment for Igloo Thermo-Logistics, allowing the company to provide safe, efficient, and eco-friendly nationwide next-day delivery of temperature-sensitive goods.”
