Satamatics, a global provider of satellite-telematics, asset tracking, and monitoring services, has launched its new Reefermatics service, a tracking system for the over-the-road longhaul trucking and cold chain logistics sectors. Traditionally, remote refrigerated control and monitoring has been technologically complicated, requiring several microprocessors and using various satellite or terrestrial communication modems for transmitting data. Satamatics' goal was to reduce the multiple failure points in the communication of this critical refrigeration information. Making use of the Satamatics SAT 201 integrated solution in the Reefermatics service now provides users with a highly reliable system for less than the cost of many cellular-based systems.
The Reefermatics tracking system provides essential information on a refrigerated trailer's status, location, temperature set point, fuel levels, battery, and history. Operating over the Inmarsat D+ satellite network, the new solution is also able to remotely start and control refrigerated systems. This combination of control, security, and data monitoring allows cold chain logistics companies to provide reliable and protected services to the shippers of perishable and high-value commodities and products.
