United States: Thermo King adds telematics to T-90 Series

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA: Thermo King T-90 Series now comes in North America with Thermo King’s TracKing telematics.

“Our customers need simple and powerful access to manage their fleet and temperature down to the smallest detail,” said Carl Breczinski, truck product manager, Thermo King North America.

“The Thermo King T-90 Series helps fleets customise their operating parameters to uphold the quality of their cargo while improving fuel savings and ensuring uptime.” 
 
The T-90 burns less fuel as the unit cools and reduces the hours that the engine runs to decrease costs and save energy when compared to competitive units, including:
• Up to 50% quicker temperature pull down and up to 48% less fuel used while pulling down to set point
• Up to 30% faster recovery time after door openings
• Up to 35% less fuel consumption and 25% less engine run time throughout a full day of use
 
OptiSet Plus locks-in operating parameters to better achieve fuel efficiency and cargo temperature control. Consistent temperature set points and ranges best match the needs of the truck while eliminating guesswork for the driver. The result is better product quality, fewer shipper and driver errors and more efficient truck fridges.

Additional features include 2,000 hours of extended interval maintenance maning fleets can reduce environmental impact and downtime with the T-90 Series TRU, and the optional SmartPower Electric Standby system that runs the fridge on electric power when stationary so fleets can lower fuel costs up to 75%, reduce engine wear, and decrease emissions.

“The Thermo King T-90 Series helps fleets customize their operating parameters to uphold the quality of their cargo while improving fuel savings and ensuring uptime.”

The T-90 is available for purchase now. For information about Thermo King transport refrigeration solutions, see: wwww.thermoking.com.
