Thermo King®, a leader in transport temperature control solutions and a brand of Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT), announced today the collaboration with the BPW Group and idem telematics, aimed at data sharing and integration in the electrified transportation space. This collaboration underscores Thermo King’s commitment to empowering customers with fully integrated visibility of their refrigeration systems and comprehensive data insights from their tractors and trailers within their preferred platform.
By partnering with experts in their fields, Thermo King creates a unique value proposition for its customers by offering a holistic view of the refrigerated trailer operations. Thermo King’s TracKing e-Vision solution provides customers with insights on the performance of the AxlePower system in combination with the Thermo King cooling unit, as well as Trailer EBS and TPMS insights.
Customers using idem telematics platform cargofleet 3, will also have access to all Thermo King refrigeration units’ and AxlePower smart energy generating system’s performance data.
The AxlePower combines BPW’s ePower axle with Thermo King trailer refrigeration unit (TRU) and power management technology. The system delivers the electric power needed to run the cooling unit by converting energy recovered by the trailer’s axle during braking and driving downhill.
“This collaboration marks another step in Thermo King’s journey within the digital space, demonstrating our dedication to operating within an ecosystem,” said Isil Dedeoglu, vice president for services and aftermarket at Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). ” We understand our cooling units are at the heart of refrigerated transport and we want to ensure our customers have the tools to optimize their operations, using their preferred integrated platform, complementing Thermo King’s TracKing™ system.”
“With more than 120.000 units in the market our open-system, cloud-based telematics portal cargofleet 3 is regarded as the de facto standard for transport telematics in the industry. It allows us to easily integrate and consolidate data from different sources,” said Jens Zeller, Managing Director of idem telematics GmbH.” We are therefore delighted to be working with Thermo King to also provide seamless access to Thermo King TRU data via our cargofleet 3 system. In this way, we are offering new opportunities for transparent and user-friendly transport management, especially for hauliers who want to digitalise their entire cold chain.”
