Masternaut helps reduce cold-chain wastage

Masternaut recognises that each year, over 2 million tonnes of fresh produce are lost or wasted in the supply chain as temperature fluctuations can write off whole shipments of produce, resulting in wasted time and money and has created a solution to remedy this and ensure cold chain consistency, driving supply chain efficiency.

Saving of up to £500 million can be made should action be taken to reduce or prevent fresh food wastage. Therefore, Masternaut’s telematics solution Connect Cold provides real-time insight and measures driver behaviour and fuel efficiency to enable operators to track the temperature in chilled units and receive immediate, geolocated warnings if temperatures move outside set limits.

“Improving the cold chain plays an important role in improving business efficiency, as well as delivering a much larger societal impact,” said Masternaut CEO Dhruv Parekh.
