TracKing temperature management and location

In the current economic environment, the transportation and logistics industry needs, more than ever, to lower operating costs by optimising their fleets. As a leader in the refrigerated transportation equipment industry, Thermo King understands this need and equips its refrigeration systems with TracKing, an intelligent temperature management system.

TracKing is a web based solution that offers sophisticated temperature management and location features to ensure top product quality delivery. With two-way access to their refrigeration unit, operators can protect their cargo and prevent load loss. Customisable reports on reefer utilisation, vehicle location, machine alarms, door openings and fuel levels allow operators to respond quickly to their customers’ needs.

Raymond Haesakkers, General Manager at Bakker Barendrecht Transport, one of the biggest fruit & vegetable companies in the Netherlands explains Tracking has proven to be an innovative and valuable solution for our customers. It enables us to guarantee them product integrity and on-time delivery. Having temperature data at our finger tips and knowing where our trailers are at any given point of time allows us to respond quickly to our customers needs. Improved customer satisfaction, more streamlined operations it’s a win-win situation for both sides

A natural next step in the evolution of the TracKing system is a fleet management system. Gayatri Chaturvedi, Business Director Telematics at Thermo King commented: "Our customers trust us to monitor their refrigerated cargo and in the past two years TracKing has proven to be a valuable solution for them. However, we want to continue to innovate and expand our telematics product offering to include fleet management in order to be a stronger partner for our customers".

Thermo King will introduce its new fleet management system in May this year. This new system will interface with the vehicle CAN BUS to provide information on fuel consumption, driving styles, journey information and vehicle emissions. It will provide fleet managers with a dashboard of cost critical information by trip, by driver and by vehicle allowing them to quickly gauge the productivity of their fleets.
