Thermo King introduced several new products, including telematics solutions for both non-refrigerated and refrigerated portfolio units. As food traceability becomes the new industry standard, all producers, shippers and carriers will expect vital proof-of-compliance data at their fingertips to ensure food is safe and in compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act. Thermo King’s range of telematics solutions for both non-refrigerated and refrigerated portfolio units include:
- TrailerTrak, a dynamic non-refrigerated trailer asset management system that provides fleet visibility of tethered and untethered trailers, delivering crucial information to fleet owners on asset utilization.
- TempuTrak, a standalone temperature and asset management system that provides visibility of refrigerated vehicle powered trucks, Heat King units and other non-Thermo King refrigerated assets, delivering crucial temperature and location information to fleet owners.
“As more fleets realize the potential savings from implementing asset management technology, these cargo and asset tracking capabilities will become critical to keeping costs down and staying competitive with other fleets,” said Gayatri Abbott, Thermo King’s product manager of telematics and intelligent services.
“As transporters continue to face the industry’s most pressing challenges, from driver recruitment and retention to traceability, we recognize that owner-operators are looking for solutions that enhance uptime and mitigate any unscheduled maintenance,” said Doug Lenz, Thermo King’s vice president of product management, marketing and business development. “APUs, telematics, and solar technology are three significant solutions addressing current issues.”
