Carrier Transicold’s, a global provider of building and cold chain solutions, recently announced updates to its eSolutions telematics platform for remote monitoring of refrigerated trucks and trailers, including a new web-based dashboard that provides critical fleet information for better decision making. The eSolutions platform helps refrigerated transporters operate efficiently by improving visibility of their cold chain assets and intelligently providing a centralized data stream about transport refrigeration units and cargo.
“The eSolutions platform not only gives connected fleets detailed information about cargo being hauled, but it also supplies more comprehensive information about their Carrier Transicold transport refrigeration unit operation than third-party telematics systems,” said David Brondum, director of service for Carrier Transicold. “We call this remarkable fleet intelligence ‘TRU IQ.’ In addition to providing critical data, such as temperatures, location and movement of refrigerated assets, the eSolutions platform can provide analytics and diagnostic information about a fleet’s Carrier Transicold refrigeration units.”
The new dashboard comprises widgets that provide an at-a-glance overview of the fleet, based on key parameters such as critical fuel levels, movement, refrigeration system operating mode and whether parked assets are running on diesel. Fleet managers can use the widgets to find specific information about individual units. Geofencing capabilities have been improved and, when two-way control capabilities are enabled, can allow for creation of customized automatic responses and notifications by email and text.
“For example, refrigeration units can generate user alerts when they arrive or depart customer locations, providing a utilization record for better scheduling accuracy and improved customer service,” said Brondum.
The enhanced live map mode now offers filter buttons, so managers can isolate and view units by a range of criteria. For example, users can pinpoint units that are not in service, units running in frozen mode, units in an alarm state or some combination of filters. Additionally, fleet managers can zoom in on specific refrigerated assets to see highly detailed information about refrigeration unit operation, movement and direction. The latest version of the eSolutions platform has been optimized for 4G cellular networks. The system can be factory or dealer installed and is fully supported coast-to-coast by Carrier Transicold’s dealer network.
