Solutions: ReeferConnect

Remote Container Management for the Modern Intermodal Supply Chain

Reduce Cargo Loss and Operating Costs of Refrigerated Container Operations

Trusted by the biggest names in the business, ReeferConnect is the leading Internet of Things (IoT) solution for remote container management, enabling real-time tracking and two-way control of refrigerated containers and cargo, across land and sea.

Deployed on more than 300,000 reefer containers worldwide, ReeferConnect helps shipping lines, intermodal operators, cargo owners and other users achieve proven ROI:

  • Increase utilization and reduce operational costs, risk of cargo loss and asset damage
  • Reduce claims with immediate reporting of alarm data for rapid response and repair
  • Minimize pre-trip inspection (PTI) costs and time; increase asset turns
  • Reduce costs of monitoring services, infrastructure and 3rd party inspections
  • Help build loyalty by simply and easily providing customers access to data

Combining advanced on-board GPS/GSM telematics hardware with on-demand cloud software, ReeferConnect easily integrates with other applications and enterprise systems. Users gain 24/7 visibility into the location and status of all their reefer container units, and can remotely adjust temperature settings and other key parameters.

Replace uncertainty, information black holes and reliance on manual inspections with actionable data, for more informed daily decision-making. Automated alarms also enable rapid response to equipment malfunctions, unplugged reefers and other critical conditions that could jeopardize valuable perishable shipments.

Key Features:

  • Tracking & monitoring: Gain full reefer container visibility with real-time GPS location, motion detection, geofence management and off-power operation
  • Reefer data: Reefer status and vital health sign reporting, scheduled and event triggered. Store and manage data during coverage blockage or outages.
  • Alarms: Reduce cargo spoilage with alarms and automated notifications
  • Pre-trip: Pre-trip inspection (PTI) analysis and control
  • Control: Full two-way communications including climate control, data log downloads, device and reefer micro over-the-air software uploads
  • Connectivity: Uses global standards-based cellular networks on land and at sea, for global coverage
  • Seamless integration: Integrates with Carrier, Thermo King, Daikin, Star Cool and customer backend systems
  • Easy installation: Installs inside or outside control cabinet in 15 minutes or less. Co-exist with legacy PLM – no need to scrap existing hardware investment
