Grupo Alpura, Mexico, produces dairy products. Their fleet consists of 200 milk trucks. The company searched for a dairy management system to solve product accounting and transportation issues.
The Wialon partner, CTTMX, Mexico, created a fleet management solution that allowed Grupo Alpura to take the milk transportation under control. The project contains the elements of the dairy management system to meet the client’s requirements.
At the client’s facility
CTTMX equipped the client’s milk trucks with the CalAmp LMU-2630MB GPS tracking devices and several sensor models: Technoton GNOM Axle Load Sensor for weight measurement and Dogo 1BB to ensure cold chain temperature monitoring. Escort TD600 fuel level sensor is responsible for fleet fuel tracking.
The Wialon partner also mounted the Howen HW-UFS06 analog ultrasonic sensors for volume measurement on the conveyor pipes so that the client could account for the milk coming out as if having a full-fledged dairy management system.
Wialon collects the data from sensors and GPS trackers and sends the data to the previously developed TRM IoT fleet management solution using Wialon API.
CTTMX customized TRM to provide the client with advanced reports containing information on stops, idling, and other fleet parameters, as well as the data on milk temperature and density via the personalized dashboards.
A dashboard for cold-chain monitoring
To choose hardware for the project, CTTMX tested several device models in the laboratory to identify the ones with the best performance.
The Wialon partner provides online employee training on the client’s demand and supports the solution 24/7.
The project implemented by CTTMX incorporates an IoT fleet management solution and the elements of the dairy management system. Now, Grupo Alpura can control their trucks and the volume of milk coming out of the conveyor pipes.
The client can follow the density of milk and ensure cold chain temperature monitoring in real-time and take measures immediately to save the product.
Thanks to the idling detection and fuel level sensors installed.
The client can detect unauthorized stops in milk collection centers, track how much milk is coming out of the conveyor pipes, and keep an eye on the fuel level in real-time, thanks to fleet fuel tracking.
The client can detect employees who drive uncarefully and train them. Careful driving doesn’t only secure the transported goods but also contributes to lesser fuel consumption.
The implementation of the tracking solution allowed the milk company to optimize the routes and deliver its products quicker.
