5 Ways ORBCOMM Can Help You Get FSMA Compliant


1. Temperature Management
Manage (single or multi-temp) trailer asset temperature with detailed reports, real-time alarms, and interactive charts that can also be downloaded to PDF or Excel.

2. Remote Reefer Control
Connect directly to reefer microprocessor for accurate temperature readings and two-way control. Adjust temperature, turn reefer on/off, and initiate pretrip or defrost remotely.

3. Trailer Precooling
Get notified when a reefer reaches precool levels or fails to precool. Automatically send precool notifications to third parties to streamline cargo chain of custody.

4. Temperature Certification and Data Collection
Capture and store temperature records for quick delivery to shippers, loaders and receivers as proof of precool and in-transit temperature compliance. 

5. Records and Documentation
Kepp 90-day historical data at your fingertips and archive records for 12 months. Keep a centralized document repository for sanitation checklists, wash-out records and more.
