Carrier Transicold has launched its Lynx Fleet solution for over-the-road refrigeration transporters in Europe. It applies advanced IoT, machine learning and analytics technology to connect the cold chain in the cloud, automate key processes and deliver real-time visibility and insights throughout the cargo’s journey.
The suite of Lynx tools is designed to provide Carrier customers with enhanced visibility, increased connectivity and actionable intelligence across their cold chain operations to improve outcomes for temperature-sensitive cargo, including food, medicine and vaccines.
“The Lynx solution is a uniquely powerful ecosystem to give our customers greater insights into their cold chain operations,” said Victor Calvo, president, international truck & trailer, Carrier Transicold. “This IoT solution can enhance connectivity across the cold chain and help increase fleet uptime and optimisation, which can reduce cargo spoilage risk.”
The Lynx Fleet digital solution can help refrigerated transporters operate more efficiently through technology and differentiation by:
- Supplying critical data such as temperatures, location and movement.
- Intelligently delivering a centralised data stream about transport refrigeration units and cargo.
- Improving visibility of cold chain assets.
- Providing analytics and diagnostic information about refrigeration units.
Lynx Fleet will leverage refrigeration equipment telematics and sources of data, along with machine learning, to help customers make faster, data-driven decisions to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of their supply chains. Designed with an open application programming interface, data in Lynx Fleet can also be fed into a customer’s own transport management system.
Lynx is part of Carrier’s Healthy, Safe, Sustainable Cold Chain Program to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine and vaccines.
