In the food service industry, there are often many different mobile distribution points that are constantly on the move. These companies often need a way to keep track of where these distribution points are located for efficient delivery of new supplies and to ensure the security of an investment.

Concept: Whether it is a small mobile food cart or a large food service van, mobile food distribution assets are very valuable to a business. In order to keep these assets safe and to ensure their proper use, owners can take advantage of GPS technology to keep track of their valuable assets.
Solution: With the M2M GPS tracking platform, food service organizations can track their valuable mobile assets with a wide variety of integrated devices. Food distribution points of any size can be tracked using a variety of tracking devices. Vehicles can be monitored for location, speed and much more. Several devices even have the option to attach a temperature probe to keep track of a temperature sensitive food to ensure that food does not become unusable.
How: Tracking devices such as the LMU-2600 from Cal-Amp and the XT-2000-O from Xirgo can be applied as productive solutions for Food & Beverage service assets. Points of sale such as a truck or pushcart can be tracked using one of these devices. For assets that do not have a dedicated power source, a trailer tracker or personal device can be easily attached and swapped when battery levels are low. Temperature sensors can be installed in any compartment that needs to be monitored for radical changes in temperature that could lead to spoiled food. Other sensors such as Fuel, PTO and Contact sensors can be installed to monitor a food service asset for any need. RFID tags can even be used to generate alerts or change employee data.
