Gangloff Industries specializes in providing transportation services for temperature sensitive products. We combine the latest technologies with the highest quality equipment and place it in the care of our experienced, professional drivers. The end result is the arrival of your product on time in the best condition. See all the features of our transport system for more information.
At Gangloff Industries, we use Utility brand trailers for superior transport protection, both on the road and on the lot. All of our trailers are equipped with the latest in refrigeration, monitoring and tracking technologies to ensure your products’ security, quality, and timeliness. That includes:
- Carrier™ refrigeration Units – Keeping temperature sensitive products fresh requires constantly maintained temperature control. Carrier’s™ refrigeration system allows us to preserve your perishable cargo and maintain the level of freshness you and your consumers expect.
- Startrak™ Remote Monitoring by Orbcomm – Our Utility trailers are equipped with Startrak™ remote monitoring systems, backed by Orbcomm, a leading provider of fleet tracking solutions. Our Startrak™ systems constantly monitor the cargo and alert us to any temperature variations or problems that could compromise your product, so that we can prevent any loss before it occurs. Whether your cargo is in transit or is awaiting offloading, the Startrak™ remote monitoring system keeps watch over your goods.
A quality trailer capable of storing perishable cargo needs a reliable tractor to haul it. That is why Gangloff Industries uses late-model Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks. We service our tractors in-house along with a close partnership with Palmer Kenwoth to maintain peak efficiency and reliability so that your cargo is never delayed by poorly maintained trucks. Our combination of company-owned tractors and owner operators provides our customers with a well-maintained fleet. Our trucks also feature high-tech tracking, monitoring, and communications systems, such as:
Omnitracs Fleet Management Systems – The US motorway network is a complex system requiring up-to-date information to properly manage delivery times. By using Omnitracs, the brainchild of the communication and technology firm Qualcomm, we can provide route planning to our drivers, monitor their progress on the road, and keep track of deliveries as they are made. This technology has also equipped our fleet for the rollout of the Electronic Driver Daily Logging mandate December 2017 which Gangloff Industries, Inc. target implementation date is 7/2017.
