Carrier Transicold highlights telematics solution, Vector TRU

Carrier Transicold highlighted its telematics solution and Vector thin-profile refrigeration units. The telematics solution is supported by Carrier Transicold’s monitor and enhanced control two-way data plan. Beyond maintaining perishable cargo temperatures per customer specifications, customers can use the Carrier Transicold telematics solution to:

  • Run pre-trip inspections remotely and verify that fuel tanks are topped off so the trailers and containers can quickly get to the next origin point to reload.
  • Monitor fuel consumption within geofenced areas, such as distribution centers, to incentivize customers to more efficiently load and unload assets.
  • Proactively monitor equipment performance remotely, using Carrier Transicold’s unit analytics, which contributes to maintenance efficiencies.
  • Upgrade refrigeration unit software over the air, significantly improving efficiencies compared to manual upgrades by service technicians.

As with the fleet’s Carrier Transicold refrigeration units, the telematics system is fully supported by Carrier Transicold’s nationwide network of factory trained technicians.

Vector series units feature E-Drive technology, a uniquely all-electric refrigeration system that is powered by a high-output generator direct-coupled to a diesel engine. The hybrid diesel-electric design eliminates complexity found in traditional transport refrigeration systems and uses intelligent controls to work more efficiently, the company stated in a press release.
