Hall's Group, NZ-based cold chain logistics company, has signed an agreement to fit out its entire fleet with the Eroad system.
The company has taken the move to support its growth plans, which include building Auckland’s largest food storage facility for chilled, frozen and ambient foods fleet, and centralising visibility into its nationwide fleet.
“We want to move to a point where we can control information through technology and we see Eroad as the technology enabler for that,” Hall's Group CEO, Alan Pearson, said. “We’ve always had temperature integrity. What we haven’t had is the ability to monitor driver performance and driver behaviour.”
He said Hall's made the decision to install the Eroad system at a board meeting this week.
“We’re cautious adopters of technology but it is clear to us that the Eroad solution adds to our bottom line and offers a range of features that will be particularly valuable to us.”
In addition to its driver behaviour tools, the Eroad solution will provide electronic RUC, electronic logbooks and data analytics.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to work with a market-leader like Halls,” said Eroad CEO Steven Newman. “We’re confident that our technology can help Halls develop innovative solutions for further growth.”
