Thermo King Implements Wireless Parts Replenishment System

Thermo King manufactures transport temperature control systems for trailers, truck bodies, shipboard and airborne containers, and buses and railway cars. The company has implemented a Wi-Fi parts replenishment solution--also known as an e-Kanban system--and integrated it into its internal manufacturing applications. The solution uses standard Wi-Fi and leverages Thermo King's existing wireless network, which the staff also uses for data communications with laptops and handheld mobile computers.
