Our utilization of telematics enables our dispatch team to closely track your intermodal shipments on our trucks and ensure they remain safe and in their required conditions:

  • GPS Tracking: All Amar containers are installed with GPS tracking as a security precaution and to provide transparent communications regarding your freight status
  • Low Fuel Warnings: To prevent mechanical issues on the road, our power units offer warnings to alert drivers and dispatch that fuel is running low
  • Remote Temperature Monitoring: For all temperature-controlled shipments, our team is able to monitor live container conditions remotely to ensure settings are as required or adjust if needed
  • In-person temperature monitoring: besides electronic monitoring, we perform physical checks during pre/post trip, when in-gating the container at our terminals and every 4-6 hours when stored at our terminals.
