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.
