Carrier Transicold offers refrigerated trailer telematics system

Carrier Transicold offers reefer telematics system

Carrier Transicold has announced that it will offer a customized telematics solution that will deliver advanced capabilities for its transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The new telematics solution will help fleets manage their refrigerated assets by enabling remote refrigeration unit monitoring, control and diagnostics, data management and other value-added capabilities.

“Adoption of telematics by the transport industry has evolved rapidly and is now an important tool for fleet management,” said David Appel, president of Carrier Transicold and Refrigeration Systems.

Orbcomm Inc. was selected to develop the system according to design and qualification requirements specified by Carrier Transicold.

“We launched this initiative in response to customer demand for an original equipment manufacturer-provided system for TRUs,” Appel said. “The system can be factory-installed and will be supported by our authorized dealer network. Orbcomm’s experience with remote monitoring and control solutions for mobile assets complements our expertise in transport refrigeration systems. Its expansive satellite and cellular capabilities provide the scale needed to support Carrier Transicold TRUs.”

With field trials nearing completion, Carrier Transicold anticipates the full release of its telematics solution in North America in 2017, followed by rollouts in Europe and other regions around the world.
