CT 3000 series enables real-time visibility and control of refrigerated containers moving along the cold chain. Enable real-time alerts and two-way control, remotely adjust temperature and humidity levels, initiate a pre-trip inspection (PTI) and access data logs.
GT 1200 Series: Easy-to-Install Container Tracking Solution
With expanded support for wireless sensors and improved solar panel, ORBCOMM’s next-generation GT 1200 series has an ultra-compact form factor that makes it easy to install in the groove of intermodal containers, providing complete asset visibility, improved operations, expedited cargo delivery and more.
Trusted by the biggest names in the business, ORBCOMM connects over 600,000 transport assets in complex global supply chains.
ReeferConnect is the leading Internet of Things (IoT) solution for remote container management that helps drive more profitable operations on road, rail and sea. It enables real-time tracking and two-way control of refrigerated containers and cargo and helps shipping lines, terminal operators, carriers, cargo owners and other users achieve proven ROI:
ReeferConnect helps you replace uncertainty, lack of visibility and reliance on manual inspections with actionable data to help you make faster and better business decisions. It combines advanced telematics hardware with a fully-revamped, modern user interface that’s both user-friendly and customizable.
ORBCOMM’s VesselConnect enables local and remote management and control of refrigerated containers on board a sea vessel. The solution helps ensure cargo integrity and reduces operating costs by allowing crews to locally monitor temperature, humidity, location and slot position, reefer status and more from the VesselConnect application on the ship, which can also be synchronized through the cloud for remote land-based access. It virtually eliminates the need for manual checks, enhancing efficiency and minimizing risks to crew, especially in inclement weather.
Using on-board GSM infrastructure powered by Vobal Technologies, VesselConnect creates a wireless local data transport network on the ship, enabling refrigerated and other containers fitted with GPS/GSM modem devices to continue to report while the vessel is on the water.
This cost-effective, low-infrastructure system can be installed with no downtime to ensure immediate vessel redeployment. Deck crew receive real-time event-based alerts on handheld devices so they can take immediate action, while office-based crew can access the central terminal, which displays all bays and containers at a glance on an icon-based interface that can be easily and universally interpreted and understood.
“This engagement demonstrates our confidence in ORBCOMM’s expertise in developing premier, end-to-end telematics systems.”
