Thermo King announced the launch of the TracKing cellular web-enabled temperature management system to complement its existing TracKing satellite system. TracKing is a wireless asset management system which provides the ability to real-time monitor and track untethered units in a fleet. Utilizing cellular, satellite and Internet technology, TracKing also has the ability to interact and control.
TracKing provides the ability to monitor an entire fleet’s actual position and route history at regular intervals, or on-demand. It provides the information needed to schedule, control and manage operations of any size, and improves overall asset utilization and fleet productivity, the company says.
TracKing also provides added security with its alarm and notification features, along with the mapping and dealer locator. TracKing can reduce losses and risks by ensuring that temperature-sensitive products are transported at the correct temperature, the company says.
TracKing cellular works best for local and regional distribution customers, and TracKing satellite is the choice for cross-country carriers and rail customers.
TracKing allows for monitoring through a secure website . Remote diagnostics on demand are provided along with multiple reports.
Mapping of vehicle locations is available with both systems, and geo-fencing within the maps is available on the cellular system, along with the ability to monitor route history within a fleet at predetermined intervals or
“The TracKing product line allows our customers to turn raw data into information to manage their assets,” says John Habermann, telematics product manager for Thermo King.
