Thermo King $500 rebate scheme

Minneapolis, MN, US: Thermo King has a rebate program for US operators that entitles customers to a rebate of up to $500 if they combine the company’s maintenance program, Thermo Gard Assurance, with the TracKing telematics system.

Implementing both services for a new trailer unit allows fleets to combine the synergies of a customised maintenance program with a telematics system that offers accessible asset utilisation information. Real-time trailer information enables fleet managers to make more informed decisions to help maximise uptime. The combined programs allow users to cut fuel and operational costs while managing maintenance costs.

The Thermo Gard Assurance maintenance programs allow fleet managers to focus on core competencies while Thermo King manages their fleet service work. This enables fleet managers to reduce costs, maximise productivity, and streamline the administration of maintaining a refrigerated fleet. Thermo Gard has demonstrated a 30% improvement in asset utilisation, says Pat O’Meara, director, SVC maintenance programs, Thermo King.

TracKing is a web-based asset management system that  allows users to remotely monitor and track refrigerated fleets. It offers the ability to monitor, track, pre-cool, and download temperature as well as alarm data from a unit. Users can remotely set accurate temperature and mode settings via TracKing to ensure effective cargo management, maximum unit off time, and improved fuel usage.

The program is valid when a customer buys a new SB or Precedent trailer unit from Thermo King with both the Thermo Gard Assurance and TracKing services. It applies only to new customers who sign on for both Thermo Gard Assurance and TracKing. The customer must remain on both Thermo Gard Assurance and TracKing for 36 months, and the program runs from January 21 to June 30, 2013.
