  • ORBCOMM, Inc. (ORBC) Subsidiary Provides Refrigerated Transportation With TMW Software 0 comments
    Sep 26, 2012 2:10 PM | about stocks: ORBC

    StarTrak Information Technologies, a subsidiary of ORBCOMM, recently announced that the company has teamed with TMW Systems to implement StarTrak's ReeferTrak application with TMWSuite software at joint customer, Lessors, Inc.

    StarTrak is focused on delivering information technology to the transportation industry, specifically refrigerated transportation systems. StarTrak has successful relationships with several refrigerated unit manufacturers such as Carrier and Thermo King, with customers including Tropicana, Maersk Line, Prime Inc, CR England, FFE Transport, and Exel Transportation.

    ReeferTrak interfaces with TMWSuite to capture real-time refrigerated trailer operational data, including trailer temperature, operational condition, and GPS position, information invaluable to the carriers and fleets that will utilize it. The range of reefer-specific data available to Lessors will also include temperature set point, on/off state, location, temperatures, fuel levels, and microprocessor controller alarms.

    David Gsell, StarTrak GM, said, "This joint capability from StarTrak and TMW offers timely and comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services to help carriers operate more effectively and efficiently. TMWSuite customers can leverage the StarTrak interface for continuous visibility and full two-way control over their fleet, maximizing real savings, improving end-to-end operations and ultimately providing better service throughout the value chain."

    "The customer-proven integration with StarTrak provides our cold chain for-hire carrier customers with leading tracking and monitoring capabilities for transport refrigeration units," added Jennifer McQuiston, Director, Partner Management, TMW Systems. "TMW customers who are active in food and temperature-controlled logistics operations now have extensive options for trailer tracking and fleet management with this announcement."
