Thermo King to offer advanced trailer connectivity solution enabled by ZF Technology

Delivering comprehensive trailer connectivity solution combining refrigeration unit’s and trailer data within one telematics platform leveraging ZF’s advanced SCALAR Fleet Orchestration technology

Thermo King TracKing™ platform will enable customers to benefit from a complete insight into the refrigerated trailer’s data including Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Thermo King refrigeration units.

Thermo King®, a leader in transport temperature control solutions and a brand of Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT), announced that they have entered a long-term supply agreement with ZF Commercial Vehicle Solutions, a leading systems supplier to the road transportation industry. As a result of the agreement, Thermo King will combine its expertise in transport refrigeration with ZF’s trailer system data to offer a comprehensive telematics solution covering the complete refrigerated trailer data within one platform.

“By partnering with market leaders and experts in their fields, Thermo King creates unique value propositions for our customers,” said Isil Dedeoglu, vice president for services and aftermarket at Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “The collaboration with a key industry player like ZF will allow Thermo King to become a one-stop solution provider for customers looking to maximise their operational efficiency by digitizing their trailer fleet. This cooperation will give our customers even easier and deeper insight into their fleets and the information they need to further improve their uptime and reliability.”

“We are delighted, Thermo King is using ZF technology to further strengthen its offerings to its customers,” said Hjalmar Van Raemdonck, Head of Digital Systems Solutions with ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions division. “For ZF, trusted industry collaborations, including the one with Thermo King, help create unique scalable value for a broader range of customers and are essential to ZF’s strategy with regards to SCALAR, our fleet orchestration platform.”

The new offering will enable customers to remotely monitor both Dry and Refrigerated fleets operating Thermo King refrigeration units and access all integrated trailer data through the Thermo King TracKing™ platform.

Thermo King will use ZF’s new SCALAR Fleet Orchestration Platform, throughout its trailer telematic solutions, to import data from ZF and all other makes of trailer-EBS systems and tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS). This new feature will allow Thermo King TracKing™ customers to leverage multi-brand EBS, odometer, axle-load and TPMS data and further optimise their trailers’ uptime, maintenance and fuel efficiency. With easy access to comprehensive information about the status of their refrigerated trailers via TracKing™ customers will be able to act and react to operate more efficiently, avoid unscheduled downtime, reduce fuel consumption and create more sustainable transport.

This new digital solution will also support fleets in complying with the Regulation No 141 of the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations (UN/ECE), which requires all new registered trailers to be equipped with TPMS from July 2024.

Highlights and Takeaways from Cool Logistics Genoa

Our 15th event marking a significant milestone in the development of bringing together notable and challenging speakers in the cold chain , facilitating networking and bringing out thoughts in an innovative environment.

“Good things come in small packages”

It was a pleasure for me (Alan Robertson) to lead the Cool team in Genoa this year at Cool Logistics event – our 15th anniversary – celebrating and challenging all matters cool. This was a significant event for us :-

· A first time that Cool Logistics had held an event in Italy and as part of |Genoa Shipping Week , and including Columbus Day

· Our 15th event marking a significant milestone in the development of bringing together notable and challenging speakers in the cold chain , facilitating networking and bringing out thoughts in an innovative environment.

· Delighted to host a visit from Annika Kroon representing the EU as Head of Maritime

· Celebrate the 90th anniversary of BIC and to be fascinated by a presentation at our gala event which they kindly sponsored by a presenter who knew and worked with Malcolm Maclean widely recognised as the founder of containerisation

When the event was planned deliberately we aimed to focus on some new thoughts and new presentations. Indeed we placed innovation at key points in our agenda. There were so many high points as a result of our planning :-

· Cool logistics globally depends on achieving and delivering on a widescale understanding of compliance and successful “handshakes” between partners in the chain – at the event we explored what that means in compliance and operationally for the world of Pharmaceuticals where at the extreme edge of shipment of vaccines and live human products . There were some lessons for all in those presentations.

· Meaningful sustainability and measurement of that was an important presentation and highlighted how,why,where and what it means for all of us involved in cool logistics given that this is a broad industry often criticised for perhaps not being sutainable enough.

· Keynote presentations on the forecast outlook for cool logistics and the wider reefer market developments and the implications for asset utilisation and supply were delivered from three different standpoints and the debate that followed was a pleasure to chair – it was great to have this panel with us in Genoa.

It was great to announce next years events in Rotterdam and Dunkirk as face to face events and we have begun work on those and also on online ideas in particular looking forward to where cool logistics may be at by 2038 – our 30th anniversary

Cool Logistics team attends GCCA’s European Cold Chain Conference

The GCCA conference in Barcelona provided food for thought!

Alan Robertson of the Cool Logistics team attend the GCCA  European Cold Chain Conference last week in Barcelona, and shares his thoughts with us here. GCCA is a strategic partner of Cool Logistics Resources.

“This was a great conference, with some really thought-provoking sessions. Lots of discussion on progress towards net zero and sustainability – the same issues we will be exploring in detail at both our forthcoming CoolTech and Cool Logistics Global conferences” (find out more here).

“The demonstration by Ocado was a great example of how data learning and AI can lead to an improved financial result in a low margin business.  The concluding plenary session was an interesting insight into trades and markets.

As ever, it is always great to catch up with colleagues and friends from across the industry. All in all, an excellent event!”

The conference took place 20-22 March 2023 in Barcelona.
