Lynx monitoring for mixed reefer box fleets

Singapore: Carrier Transicold now provides remote monitoring of mixed fleets, including those using refrigeration systems from multiple manufacturers, through a single interface.

Carrier’s Lynx Fleet platform upgrade enables customers to monitor all refrigerated assets, not just Carrier Transicold units, from a single cloud-based platform, said Willy Yeo, director of marketing, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold.

“For customers with mixed fleets, comprising both Carrier and non-Carrier units, this new capability is a powerful tool for fleet optimization and data monitoring.”

Lynx Fleet monitors container refrigeration systems as they move by sea and land, providing information through a centralised data stream that improves visibility for shipping lines and their customers.

Relevant data from non-Carrier equipment is displayed along with Carrier units on the Lynx Fleet dashboard, providing fleet managers access to all their connected refrigerated containers on a single interface, eliminating the need to toggle between separate platforms.

In addition to the new mixed fleet capability, the innovative Lynx Fleet platform provides:
Monitoring and control of vital refrigerated container parameters, including temperature and depending on unit options and sensors, humidity, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, along with alerts if preset parameters are exceeded.
Location data and geofencing with automated communication, for maximum visibility of container location, including notifications when cargo crosses geofences created by the fleet manager.
Refrigeration unit health data, based on equipment performance monitoring, to provide predictive analytics and actionable diagnostics.
Integration with on-vessel wireless monitoring solutions, which provides vessel operators with a comprehensive overview of all Lynx Fleet-enabled containers onboard and for vessels with satellite communications capability, more frequent updates to a fleet’s landside monitoring station about cargo and container location around the globe.
