Power consumption is shaping up as an important factor as the reefer shipping industry moves to embrace data driven management leveraging the Internet of Things. Connected refer containers that monitor temperature and power consumption throughout their life have the potential to change the way shippers and shipping lines pay for reefer services, and bring visibility to claims about energy consumption and efficiency.  

“From the beginning, our technology was built to deliver our customers with the highest efficiency, maximum cooling capacity and lowest total cost of ownership,” said Michel Gadron, commercial leader at Thermo King Marine. “At this year’s Intermodal Europe show we want to showcase our customer-centric approach to marine transport refrigeration and demonstrate that we accompany our customers through the entire lifecycle of their reefers, continuously trying to improve and upgrade the capabilities and efficiency of their fleet.” 

At the Intermodal Europe exhibition starting on 28 November in Amsterdam, Thermo King will launch its latest enhanced energy logging software for MAGNUM PLUS reefers, “helping fleets quantify energy consumption and sustainability performance,” Thermo King stated. The company also plans to present case studies on customers using its “next-generation, low global warming potential (GWP) R-452A refrigerant “. This was introduced by Thermo King in 2014 as a replacement for R-404A in marine applications, and has a GWP of 2,140.
