Improves visibility, management and utilization of assets moving along the cold chain through temporary or permanent installation

ROCHELLE PARK, N.J., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it has launched its next-generation solution for remote monitoring and control of refrigerated containers travelling by land, rail or sea for uninterrupted visibility of operations, improved efficiency and reduced costs. ORBCOMM’s CT 3000 series provides wireless connectivity through its ruggedized hardware and a Cloud-based analytics platform and information management engine for optimal asset management and utilization.

ORBCOMM’s CT 3000 series supports built-in and external sensors, cellular connectivity and wireless technologies to deliver actionable data on asset location, status, performance, cargo area temperature, and more. The new series comes in two variants — the CT 3100 can be temporarily installed to monitor assets for a specific duration while on a trip, aboard a vessel or at a terminal, while the CT 3000 is permanently installed on an asset for continuous tracking. This next-generation container monitoring solution connects directly to the reefer to enable real-time alerts and two-way control, allowing operators to quickly react to discrepancies and remotely adjust temperature and humidity levels to ensure temperature compliance and minimize spoilage, thereby reducing costly insurance claims. By leveraging comprehensive data logs to efficiently allocate assets, operators can also eliminate unnecessary moves, improve turn times and streamline delivery and routes. In addition, ORBCOMM’s refrigerated container product series automates pre-trip inspections to facilitate quicker turn times, lower operational expenses and reduce safety risks to personnel.

“ORBCOMM continues to lead the industrial IoT in innovation, as we remain committed to developing new feature-rich, cost-effective products that meet the changing demands of our markets,” said Craig Malone, ORBCOMM’s Executive Vice President of Product Development. “ORBCOMM’s new refrigerated container product series utilizes our best-in-class IoT technology to enable intermodal operators to maximize asset utilization and lower operating costs, while providing the highest value and service to customers.”
