National Milk Laboratories (NML) has made the decision to standardise on Seven Telematics for all temperature monitoring and tracking equipment within its all-refrigerated Mercedes Sprinter 3.5tonne fleet.
TranScan 2 data loggers and Cool Track remote tracking were retrofitted to eight existing NML vehicles. The remaining 11 vehicles have been progressively replaced by new vehicles, all of these latest fleet additions are fitted with TranScan 2 and Cool Track.
“We require that samples are transported below 8° C and by specifying Seven Telematics exclusively, we have the best, and most reliable, temperature monitoring and tracking systems currently on the market,” said Steve Nicol, transport manager at National Milk Laboratories.
National Milk Laboratories provides quality testing for all major milk buyers in the UK, such as Dairy Crest, Arla Foods, Wiseman and First Milk, receiving bulk milk samples from 98% of UK dairy farms for every collection of milk made by the milk buyer. Also NML runs national statutory testing programmes on behalf of DEFRA and the Food Standards Agency.
