Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems and a brand of Ingersoll Rand; and Add On Systems (AOS) Inc, a provider of AS400/iSeries software for truckload carriers, recently integrated the Thermo King TracKing Telematics system with AOS’ iSeries software.
The combined system increases operational efficiency and fleet uptime, as well as improving on-time delivery.
TracKing is a web-based refrigerated trailer and temperature monitoring system that provides end-to-end visibility of cargo and assets over the road, on railcars, and in the yard. This system enables refrigerated fleets to monitor assets, lower operating costs, and improve response times while maintaining high food safety and quality standards.
TracKing captures mission-critical data like cargo temperature, Thermo King refrigeration unit parameters, real-time alarms, trailer location, door openings, and fuel levels that are communicated to a host system for display on AOS user screens. The AOS module notifies users in near real-time when a refrigeration unit alarm or event occurs. TracKing and AOS users who want cargo traceability to ensure food safety now have the flexibility of accessing their refrigerated fleet data in one system.
AOS users will continue to access the TracKing web interface for features such as remote download of the Thermo King controller and datalogger, remote OptiSet Plus to pre-set refrigeration unit parameters based on cargo profiles, Wi-Fi capability and have full two-way control over their refrigerated fleet.
