Carrier Transicold has updated its TripLINK data management platform for 24/7 remote monitoring and control of refrigerated containers with additional features providing greater functionality, more actionable intelligence and customizable fleet control addressing a shipping line’s unique needs.
“The TripLINK platform gives our customers customizable, centralized and highly detailed visibility into their regionally or globally deployed Carrier Transicold equipment,” says Willy Yeo, director of marketing, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold. “The roll out of these enhancements following the TripLINK platform launch in November is part of our commitment to ongoing refinement and expansion of capabilities to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
The company says highlights of the TripLINK platform enhancements include:
- Custom notifications based on user-created parameters to show unit status, alarms or location.
- Geofencing combined with notifications for real-time insights as to when units enter or exit a port or specific location and also indicate unit dwell time.
- Data downloads enabling wireless downloads of trip information from refrigerated containers using Carrier Transicold’s native DataLINE Connect (.dcx) format, which is the standard for reporting and verification purposes.
Carrier Transicold says the TripLINK platform comprises hardware and software modules that enable customers to remotely track container refrigeration equipment location, performance and health, as well as cargo status, through an interactive digital dashboard, accessible via an internet-connected PC, smartphone or tablet. Telematics integration and a cloud-based architecture also help ensure information is updated so users can make informed decisions about their fleet operations, the company says.
And with the new notification capability, users can choose to receive immediate email updates in addition to alerts via the TripLINK platform website. Notifications can also signal alarm conditions or provide diagnostic alerts when a refrigeration unit is in transit, the company says.
“The fleet intelligence provided by the TripLINK platform – especially with its new notifications, geofencing and data download capabilities – gives shipping lines even greater visibility and control of their assets in transit, helping them improve customer service while maximizing efficiency of their refrigerated container operations,” Yeo says.
