ATHENS, Ga., Aug. 4, 2016 — Carrier Transicold today announced it will offer a customized telematics solution that will deliver advanced capabilities for its transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The new telematics solution will help fleets manage their refrigerated assets by enabling remote refrigeration unit monitoring, control and  diagnostics, data management and other value-added capabilities.

“We are excited about the opportunity to provide an advanced two-way wireless  communications system, uniquely qualified for truck and trailer units and backed by our  comprehensive dealer support network,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration Systems. “Adoption of telematics by the transport industry has evolved  rapidly and is now an important tool for fleet management.”

ORBCOMM Inc., a global provider of machine-to-machine and internet of things  solutions, was selected to develop the system according to design and qualification  requirements specified by the Georgia based company.

“We launched this initiative in response to customer demand for an original equipment manufacturer-provided system for TRUs,” Appel said. “The system can be  factory-installed and will be supported by our authorized dealer network. ORBCOMM’s  experience with remote monitoring and control solutions for mobile assets complements our expertise in transport refrigeration systems. Its expansive satellite and cellular capabilities provide the scale needed to support Carrier Transicold TRUs.”
“We are pleased to have been chosen to support global refrigerated transport  leader Carrier Transicold,” said Marc Eisenberg, CEO, ORBCOMM. “ORBCOMM’s
technologies and knowledge will provide Carrier Transicold’s customers with tools to better track and monitor their shipments.”

With field trials nearing completion, the company anticipates the full release  of its telematics solution in North America in 2017, followed by rollouts in Europe and other regions around the world.
