Thermo King, a leader in transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications, has equipped all of its direct drive, vehicle-powered truck and van refrigeration units with TracKing, the company’s hallmark asset management system.

The intelligent telematics system puts customers in the driver’s seat when it comes to remote access of their refrigerated fleets and it can be installed on all new and existing units. TracKing allows easy monitoring and analysis of refrigerated operations to ensure temperature control, compliance and maximum uptime without taking assets off of the road.

“Our remote connectivity, mobile apps, and data gathering allow fleet managers to transform their operations and make their fleets more predictable and traceable,” said Eneko Fernandez, product management leader at Thermo King. “Our customers value intelligent products and services and we are pleased to continue to offer them with the innovative solutions that will help them improve fleet optimisation and increase profitability.”

The TK BlueBox is part of the TracKing telematics system and is a communication device that collects and stores unit data, which can be accessed through a free Thermo King Reefer mobile app on a smartphone or Bluetooth-enabled device. This allows both fleet managers and drivers to remotely access vital unit data to ensure that the load is protected at all times and the unit is running at its most efficient. Moreover, drivers can monitor cargo temperatures and the reefer even when they are away from the vehicle during deliveries or on a break.

TracKing can be integrated into other transport management system as well, in order to optimise asset utilisation and enable seamless data integration. With support from the Thermo King dealer network, fleets benefit from proactive and efficient service across Europe while minimising downtime. Access to real-time data and diagnostics also enables Thermo King dealers to serve as trusted solution advisors that are even better equipped to anticipate and respond to customers’ evolving needs.
