Globe Tracker and Taylor Power Systems have partnered to deliver a “fully connected genset solution for the cold chain”.
Taylor Power Systems, part of the US-based Taylor group of companies that manufactures liftrucks and reachstackers, supplies gensets for applications including reefer container transport and storage. Danish company Globe Tracker specialises in sensors and connectivity for asset tracking, monitoring and supply chain visibility.
“The fully integrated solution will provide customers with full visibility of Taylor genset operating parameters including fuel level, geo-fences and remote shut off capability. The solution will assist customers with fuel management, asset utilisation and notification of fuel theft and improper use,” the companies said in a statement.
“We are proud of the genset solution that we developed with Taylor Power Systems. The solution is very clean and delivers on the data required to improve operations, increase efficiency, utilisation, while addressing maintenance and fuel theft issues in near real time,” said Don Miller, VP of Sales and Marketing at Globe Tracker.
“We found it very easy to work with Globe Tracker. The pedigree of their technology along with their service levels is what made it easy for us to select them as our preferred telematics vendor,” noted John Scarborough, National Accounts Manager for Taylor Power Systems.
