The Thermo King ConnectedSuite platform is a package of Thermo King technology for a fleet’s connected assets that provides information in real-time.

The platform collects and aggregates data for mobile assets to help ensure that valuable loads arrive on-time and in optimal condition, the company says. ConnectedSuite now includes more features to help fleets improve efficient temperature management, FSMA compliance and further optimize asset utilization.

New ConnectedSuite TracKing features include:

TK Notify App

The new TK Notify mobile application provides data notifications and a detailed view of the status of units so fleets. TK Notify provides a snapshot of the status of the unit when an event occurs. Information includes setpoint, return air, discharge air, sensor temperature door status, mode of operation and the location of the unit at the exact time a problem occurs, giving fleet owners a clear snapshot of the reefer during the event.

The app sends notifications when a unit requires maintenance. Managers can escalate events to drivers, service technicians or dealers to streamline communication and optimize fleet performance while a repair is underway.

TK Notify is free and available for download on Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Connect & Share

Connect & Share is a new data-sharing service for fleets that use third-party telematics. Connect & Share provides data access to third-party telematics and allows fleets to gather temperature, position and operational information without the need for third-party hardware. Fleets can send two-way commands depending on the system capabilities.
