Allen Lund Co. — along with Kore Telematics and Locus Traxx — received a Transportation Gold Value Chain Award from Connected World magazine for their development of a live load tracking device that measures cargo temperatures, security and location, according to a news release.

The Locus Traxx-supplied device installs on refrigerated trailers that contain wireless sensors, which continuously detect and transmit load temperature, security and location, the release said.

Text and e-mail messages are sent automatically to Lund so they can make real-time decisions and take necessary steps to ensure the safe delivery.

The devices can be set up to work with any trailer in minutes and can be quickly removed, repackaged and returned to monitor the next shipment, the release said.
