PAR Technology Corporation’s business unit PAR Logistics Management Systems (PAR LMS) has become a sanctioned two-way communication telematics provider using the approved protocols for temperature control in the refrigerated trailer industry. PAR also has been authorized as a cellular communications provider for command and control of both Thermo King and Carrier Transicold refrigerated assets.

In a general bulletin to the cold chain community, Carrier Transicold announced, "The remote communications company PAR LMS is now DataTrak option-approved for two-way communication. This designation signifies that PAR’s tracking and monitoring system, which has been compatible for one-way communication with Carrier transport refrigeration units since November 2006, is now able to send two-way commands to remotely control Carrier transport refrigeration units."

Operators now have the ability to respond to critical reefer alarms and turn reefer units on/off—all from their office computer. The PAR LMS tracking and monitoring system can connect to all North American single and multi-temp truck and trailer refrigeration units using both Standard Summit and Advance microprocessors dating back to 1996 with Carrier Transicold. With Thermo King, PAR uses two-way command and control on the MP series, SB series, as well as the SR2 series of micros.
