TracKing Pro algorithms use machine learning to estimate fuel usage and increase fleet uptime, the company says. The system provides insights into fuel consumption, electricity usage and opportunities to enhance uptime. 

"As an innovation and market leader, Thermo King is committed to not only delivering digital solutions that meet evolving customer and industry needs but also to making it easier for customers to maintain an efficient and sustainable fleet," says Dominic Hand, vice president of IT and connected products for Thermo King Americas. "TracKing Pro telematics provides fleet owners and managers with critical data and actionable insights, when and where they need it to help optimize performance and increase profitability." 

TracKing Pro's algorithm and predictive analytics can anticipate where failures may occur and provide alerts in advance, Thermo King says. That enables a proactive response and helps avoid unplanned downtime. 

The system also enables customers to quantify their CO2 emissions in metric tons for diesel and electric standby operations, allowing fleets to operate more sustainably and reduce their carbon footprint, Thermo King says. It also summarizes data and provides reports that can be communicated to key stakeholders. 

TracKing Pro is included with the Thermo King Remote Operating Center, which provides rapid roadside assistance for transport refrigeration units, including 24/7 professional triage, smart routing and warranty coverage for predicted failures.
