[introduction]Intermodal 45-foot Container manufacturing pioneer UNIT45 has partnered with Globe Tracker International, a leader in global supply chain visibility, to offer the first commercial Smart Refrigerated container. The revolutionary system will combine data from the refrigeration unit with data collected from wireless sensors reporting condition and security variables from both inside and outside the container. The compilation of this data offers a true picture of cargo–in–transit and reduces risk and loss across the Intermodal space. [/introduction]
A GT smart reefer system includes a GT communications unit, a GT partner reefer controller interface device, multiple Sub gigahertz antennas and multiple sub gigahertz wireless sensors inside and outside the reefer’s cargo area. GT’s smart reefer system features two-way communications with GT partner reefer controller interface devices, providing reefer owners with data and full remote command and control of their assets. GT smart reefer owners can continuously monitor and set each reefer’s operating parameters anywhere in the world from anywhere in the world; safely and securely.
GT smart reefers can also include a satellite communications peripheral to further enhance communications reliability in areas where the GT communications unit’s embedded communications might not be able to connect with a service provider. The satellite communications option can be particularly valuable for pushing real-time communication of an important reefer event like cargo door open or a rapid cargo area temperature change for example.
