Vypin, LLC, Alpharetta, Ga., and e4score TrackAssured joined forces to offer shippers and carriers a solution for visibility, alerting and analytics to comply with the Sanitary Transport rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Vypin is a pioneer in providing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions featuring sensor-based beacons and supporting mobile/cloud management software.
e4score TrackAssured, a unit of iGit enterprises, Guilford, Conn., provides cloud aggregation shipment visibility services that food shippers use to track and monitor their shipments in real-time.
The Vypin and e4score TrackAssured solutions close the “compliance gap” by enabling small carriers and owner-operators to be FSMA-compliant, just like many large asset-based carriers.
Vypin’s OverPass technology improves equipment ROI, increases asset utilization and yard management capabilities, automates event tracking and reporting and enhances customer billing and billing reconciliation. It also provides real-time visibility to user’s assets, including location, status, maintenance and history.
“Vypin’s OverPass technology offers companies an inexpensive beacon that tracks location and temperature with a mobile application. By combining this technology with e4score’s TrackAssured system, we are delivering shippers, carriers, drivers and consignees the ‘peace of mind’ they need when the safety and quality of their freight is of utmost importance,” says Chuck Herzog, partner, Vypin.
e4score TrackAssured’s technology aggregates tracking and monitoring data from any source, provides real-time visibility and auto alerts of at-risk shipments and confirmation that the shipment is FSMA compliant.
“Our turnkey technology helps shippers and carriers get up and running quickly by providing compliance with FSMA Sanitary Transport regulations. With Vypin OverPass and e4score TrackAssured, a carrier can haul any temperature-controlled shipment and provide the shipper and receiver with full FSMA compliance assurance. As a carrier-of-choice, they’ll never again miss a shipment because they cannot provide real-time temperature data,” says Chuck Irwin, president of e4score TrackAssured.
