Orbcomm controlled atmosphere container monitoring

Hamburg, Germany: Orbcomm has launched its ReeferConnect and VesselConnect platforms that can manage the intermodal industry’s new, energy-efficient controlled atmosphere containers.

Shown at Intermodal Europe in Hamburg, Germany, this week, Orbcomm has put controlled atmosphere technology into its ReeferConnect and VesselConnect platforms for Daikin and StarCool, enabling remote command and control of their containers, including setting the controlled atmosphere, initiating pre-trip inspections and accessing data.

Controlled atmosphere containers regulate the container’s internal atmosphere by altering carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen levels to enhance the shelf life of perishable produce.

“Orbcomm is committed to maintaining its position as a leader and innovator in the industrial IoT by continuing to develop new technologies and expanding the capabilities across our solution portfolio to meet our customers’ evolving needs and market challenges,” said Marc Eisenberg, chief executive, Orbcomm.

“With the technology advancements we’ve made in refrigerated cargo transport, we are the first IoT company to support controlled Aamosphere containers, which will take intermodal operations to a higher level of operational efficiency and compliance, while ensuring optimal care for high-value, perishable cargo.”
