Sapulpa, Okla.-based John Christner Trucking added ORBCOMM two-way reefer telematics to provide temperature, fuel management, maintenance and other capabilities for its nationwide fleet of refrigerated rail and over-the-road (OTR) trailers.
It will use ORBCOMM’s RT6000+, two-way reefer telematics device developed by StarTrak.
ORBCOMM will also provide a Web application with advanced data reporting and analytics capabilities to increase in-transit visibility and efficiency of John Christner’s refrigerated transport operations.
The carrier will fully integrate the trailer data with its back-office platform to gain significant fuel savings, optimize temperature compliance and increase responsiveness and customer satisfaction, which will contribute directly to their bottom line, the company said.
“With fuel savings as our primary ROI driver, ORBCOMM’s tracking and monitoring solution will provide the critical insight we need to better manage our trailer fleet operations and increase performance,” said John Christner, CEO of John Christner Trucking, LLC.
