Thermo King updates app, integrates

Thermo King is building on its ConnectedSuite telematics portfolio with the Thermo King Connect app and new third-party partnerships that can integrate TracKing temperature and asset management systems into partner platforms.

The Connect app can be downloaded for iOS and Android and replaces the soon-to-retire Thermo King Reefer and Notify app.

TracKing subscribers can use the app to access reefer operational, location and status data, dynamic notification alerts, and a Thermo King dealer locator with SOS function. Users can also view and clear alarms, send two-way commands, connect a reefer over Bluetooth, and access unit quick-start guides, alarm code sheets, and user manuals.

Non-TracKing users have access to the dealer locator and SOS function as well as Thermo King product manuals and guides.

A growing list of partner systems will also integrate into TracKing telematics equipment, which has been standard on Thermo King Precedent trailer units since 2018, the company says. No further hardware is needed.
