Thermo King expands telematics offerings

Thermo King has expanded its ConnectedSuite portfolio of telematics. This includes the Thermo King Connect app and new third-party partnerships, which allow users to integrate Thermo King’s TracKing temperature and asset management system with partner platforms.

Available to all Thermo King TracKing and non-TracKing users, the Connect app can be downloaded for iOS or Android and replaces the soon-to-retire Thermo King Reefer and Notify apps, providing greater functionality in one app.

The Thermo King Connect app gives TracKing subscribers access to reefer operational, location and status data, dynamic notification alerts, and Thermo King’s full-featured dealer locator with SOS function. Users can also view and clear alarms, send two-way commands, connect a reefer over Bluetooth, and access unit quick-start guides, alarm code sheets, and user manuals.

Non-TracKing users have access to the dealer locator and SOS function as well as Thermo King product manuals and guides.

Expanded data sharing partnerships with several companies allow customers to integrate partner systems with TracKing telematics equipment, which comes standard on Thermo King Precedent trailer units. No additional hardware is needed to access the cloud-based, secure data integration. Customers may opt in at any time to authorize available partners to access their Thermo King units. The list of partners will continue to grow and already includes providers of fleet management systems, freight brokerage, and other telematics solutions. Customers may contact their Thermo King dealer or contact
