Carrier and Amazon collaborate on digital platform

Palm Beach Gardens, Florid, USA: Amazon Web Services has worked with Carrier on its new Lynx digital platform.

The Lynx platform combines Amazon’s analytics and machine learning with Carrier’s refrigeration and monitoring, extending Carrier’s current digital services for managing temperature-controlled transport and storage.

The Lynx platform provides end-to-end tracking, real-time alerts, automated processes, and predictive analytics. It gives operators a view of cargo location, temperature conditions, and external events that could affect cold chain operations.

This information will allow Amazon’s machine learning services to identify potential issues that could affect cargo, as well as run sophisticated analytics that make recommendations for improving outcomes. For example, by analyzing historic and real-time performance data from Carrier’s cloud-connected equipment, the Lynx platform could suggest proactive maintenance to increase a specific piece of equipment’s availability.

Carrier and Amazon plan to introduce a capability for the Lynx platform to provide recommendations related to cargo routing and improved fleet utilization, adding greater resilience into the cold chain that will help Carrier’s customers to manage costs, schedules, and resources.
