Highlighting a range of new services and telematics solutions designed to improve customer efficiency and protect the cold chain, aftersales support will be a featured component of the Carrier Transicold France stand at the Solutrans show. Carrier Transicold, operating in France as Carrier Transicold France, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
To support Carrier Transicold France’s network development, a number of service centers have modernized their workshops in 2015 and new service centers have opened in Wissous, Rennes and Niort to increase coverage.
Carrier Transicold’s redesigned everCOLD™ full-service maintenance package provides customers with several options, including international coverage, regulatory checks, or service and repair of ancillary devices, such as temperature recorders and telematics systems. Fleet managers can pay monthly, quarterly or annually, with the advantage of knowing exact costs for the duration of the contract, regardless of how much maintenance is required, or when the need for maintenance is identified. New everCOLD agreements include all recommended maintenance, carried out by manufacturer-trained technicians using genuine performance parts. EverCOLD also provides full access to oneCALL™ 24/7 year-round breakdown assistance and to Carrier Transicold’s extensive service network in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which features more than 600 service centres.
With an ever increasing focus on public health, temperature traceability of cargo is an important issue for refrigerated transport providers. Carrier Transicold’s new DataCOLD™ 600 temperature recorder and COLDTrans, an innovative web-based telematics solution, can help transport providers meet today’s regulations and bring better visibility to the cold chain. Using direct communication with the transport refrigeration unit microprocessor, the COLDTrans solution provides access to real-time and historical temperature reports, set point visualization, real-time GPS position information, and alarm code information (door openings, temperature variations) via text and email. It also remotely monitors refrigeration unit running hours in electric or diesel mode. This real-time data allows fleet managers to reduce downtime, optimize maintenance and manage trailer routes. All of these features combine to enable fleet managers to optimize their refrigerated transport fleets while improving service to their customers.
The DataCOLD range is fully-compliant with the European regulation for transport of frozen food (EN12830). The system ensures traceability of the units throughout the cold chain. The data can be stored for several years and used for trending reports. The reports and alarms can be customized for the customer and integrated into existing web systems.
