Qualcomm Inc (NASDAQ: QCOM) and StarTrak Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Alanco Technologies Inc (NASDAQ: ALAN), announced that the two companies will offer StarTrak’s ReeferTrak system for refrigerated transport to Qualcomm customers.
ReeferTrak is a system for cold chain management and is designed to meet the needs of refrigerated transport companies. In addition to benefiting from the asset management capabilities of Qualcomm’s mobile information systems, carriers will be able to remotely control and proactively monitor and manage their reefer assets.
The ReeferTrak system’s two-way logistical, monitoring and control capabilities can now provide Qualcomm customers the ability to monitor reefer location, as well as control the critical conditions of refrigerated trailers throughout the shipping process. Fleets can track and locate their reefer assets, monitor and control fuel consumption, and remotely control the reefer’s operation with capabilities such as start and stop, change set point, and initiate a defrost. They can also remotely monitor reefer operation conditions for alarms, temperatures, and set points. Fleets that adopt the StarTrak system can benefit from reduced freight claims, risk avoidance, improved cargo security, and better fuel management.
StarTrak provides GPS tracking and wireless asset management services to the transportation industry and tracking, monitoring, and two-way control services to the “reefer“ segment of the transportation marketplace. It offers complete integrated systems for refrigerated trailers, trucks, railcars, and containers. Visit www.startrak.com for more information.
