Pro Transport and Leasing Inc of Grand Forks ND has contracted with Alanco Technologies’ StarTrak Systems subsidiary to deploy StarTrak’s new ReeferTrak Sentry for tracking, monitoring, and control of its entire refrigerated trailer fleet. Pro Transport will be the first customer to deploy the Sentry reefer management system fleetwide on its installed base of more than 200 trailers.
The Sentry product includes a communicator hardware unit installed on the refrigerated trailer, as well as an ongoing monthly subscription service plan providing customer access to system information. Sentry uses a cellular-based wireless communications platform, along with GPS tracking data, which will provide the carrier with two-way monitoring and control of its refrigerated trailer fleet. With Sentry, Pro Transport can monitor logistical and operational information including GPS location, refrigerated set point, temperatures, and engine operating parameters. Reefer operating conditions and temperature can be controlled remotely.
