Kiwi firm EROAD and Euroscan partner to deliver hi-tech cold chain

EROAD and Euroscan have formed a partnership that will allow their customers in the Asia Pacific to access a raft of transport intelligence.

Under the agreement, Euroscan Asia Pacific and EROAD will bundle their technologies to offer the dry and refrigerated goods transport sectors a single integrated reporting system for tracking and monitoring machinery performance and cold chain goods integrity.

Customers will be able to make accurate asset deployment and management decisions through one integrated online reporting platform, says EROAD.

Euroscan Asia Pacific will become one of a select group of dealers for EROAD in Australia, while EROAD will be an official network partner for Euroscan in New Zealand.

“Most of the larger New Zealand operators transport chilled goods at some stage,” says Steven Newman, EROAD CEO. “There are increasing end-customer requirements for cold chain monitoring and management and with this alliance and bundling of Euroscan’s world-class solutions, EROAD can help our customers meet the HACCP compliance standards contained in the proposed new NZ Food Act.”

“EROAD’s best-of-breed technology is an excellent fit with our cold chain expertise,” says Euroscan Asia Pacific Managing Director Mark Mitchell. “Our combined offering has a simplicity of operation which will appeal to the transport industry. They will be happy to replace multiple pieces of hardware working in isolation with one integrated solution.”

Transport technology and services company EROAD provides electronic road user charging and commercial services to customers in New Zealand and Oregon, and a telematics solution in Australia.

Euroscan Asia Pacific, based in Queensland, provides total cold chain solutions for data recording and online transport monitoring, developed by the Euroscan Group.

Based in the Netherlands and operating globally, Euroscan specialises in the delivery of hardware and telematic systems that help companies comply with the global HACCP (Hazard Access and Critical Control Point) standard covering food and pharmaceuticals. Among its customers is the McDonald’s hamburger chain which rely on Euroscan to monitor temperatures and asset movement.
