24 Sep Globe Tracker and Emerson to Offer IoT-Enabled Gensets
Copenhagen, September 24th 2017
Globe Tracker ApS announced it is working with Emerson to provide cold chain transportation service providers and customers with real-time global tracking, monitoring and remote control capabilities for generator sets (Gensets). The solution will provide full visibility in the transport of their goods.
The new M2M solution, integrated into Emerson’s ProAct™ Services platform through a secure API, can be factory or aftermarket installed and helps operators manage their Gensets by enabling real-time tracking, remote monitoring, remote control, diagnostics, data management and other value added capabilities.
“We are pleased to work with Emerson’s Transportation Solutions team as a global OEM telematics provider. Globe Tracker’s M2M solution will provide Emerson a proven and robust solution offering real-time visibility to reefer Gensets”, said Jakup Lamhauge, CEO of Globe Tracker. “Equipping Gensets with IoT technology will reduce cost and improve reefer operations, reduce load damage or loss, preserve cargo integrity, streamline maintenance, better manage fuel, deter fuel theft, and help manage regulatory compliance with global and local carbon footprint and emissions standards” noted Lamhauge.
“This is a great opportunity for Emerson to provide an advanced M2M solution for Gensets together with Globe Tracker,” said Keith Browning, Vice President and General Manager — Transportation Solutions, Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions. “We expect rapid adoption of Genset M2M solutions because as reefer containers move from point of landfall to their final destination, they depend on electrical power from Gensets and real-time visibility is a critical element in protecting cargo integrity during the last mile,” added Browning.
The Genset M2M solution will be available to customers in Q4 2017.
