thermo-king-precedent

Thermo King unveiled the Connected Precedent trailer refrigeration unit. Starting in 2018, all Precedent units will be equipped from the factory with Thermo King’s hallmark asset management system TracKing, which provides real-time updates for efficient temperature management, Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliance and refrigeration unit performance. Once activated, the Connected Precedent allows users to monitor and analyze refrigerated operations to ensure temperature compliance and maximum uptime—without taking assets off the road.

With in-cab and in-yard access via the Thermo King Reefer mobile app using Bluetooth, drivers can manage cargo temperatures, monitor the reefer and respond to alerts all within the cab. Similarly, in-yard access makes it easier to prepare reefers for trips, ensuring that they are fueled and alarm-free, Thermo King said. In-yard access via Bluetooth delivers easy access to all trailers irrespective of their location, the company added.
