Orbcomm refrigerated container monitoring

Rochelle Park, New Jersey, USA: Orbcomm has launched its next-generation remote monitoring for refrigerated containers.

The CT 3000 series offers uninterrupted visibility of operations, improved efficiency and reduced cost, Orbcomm says.

It uses wireless connectivity through a cloud-based analytics platform. The CT 3000 series supports built-in and external sensors, cellular connectivity and wireless technologies to deliver actionable data on location, status, performance, cargo area temperature, and more. The new series comes in two variants — the CT 3100 can be temporarily installed to monitor assets for a specific period while on a trip, aboard a vessel or at a terminal, while the CT 3000 is permanently installed for continuous tracking.

“This next-generation container monitoring solution connects directly to the reefer to enable real-time alerts and two-way control, allowing operators to quickly react to discrepancies and remotely adjust temperature and humidity levels to ensure temperature compliance and minimize spoilage, thereby reducing costly insurance claims. By leveraging comprehensive data logs to efficiently allocate assets, operators can also eliminate unnecessary moves, improve turn times and streamline delivery and routes. In addition, Orbcomm’s refrigerated container product series automates pre-trip inspections to facilitate quicker turn times, lower operational expenses and reduce safety risks to personnel.
