StarTrak Systems, LLC, a subsidiary of Alanco Technologies, announced that it has entered into a long-term agreement with PLM Trailer Leasing (PLM) for the purchase of ReeferTrak monitoring and control systems, with initial product deliveries expected to exceed $1 million.
PLM, one of the largest lessors of refrigerated equipment in North America, including trailers and storage containers, has committed to equip each of its newly purchased reefer units with a StarTrak ReeferTrak system, as well as offering a retrofit ReeferTrak solution to existing customers. PLM will provide this new wireless monitoring and control capability to its extensive base of cold supply chain customers as part of Cold Link, PLM’s refrigerated service program.
PLM can now offer both new and existing customers the full capabilities of StarTrak’s reefer
wireless monitoring and control service for a relatively small additional monthly fee, while relieving PLM customers of the initial ReeferTrak capital investment and deployment distractions, the company says.
ReeferTrak also provides PLM with critical unit information to facilitate fleet management, including GPS location and geofencing, engine hours and mileage reports.
