Ireland-based maritime IoT company Net Feasa has entered into a supply agreement with Carrier Transicold, a provider of connected cold chain systems, to deliver IoT On Vessel Networks for the intermodal shipping industry.
Net Feasa’s IoT system involves the installation of a wireless network onboard a ship to enable live connectivity to shipping container sensors while at sea, for monitoring of operational parameters such as temperature deviations.
As part of the agreement, Carrier Transicold will resell Net Feasa’s system to shipping customers, providing visibility into the status of operator-owned or third-party smart containers onboard (both refrigerated and dry).
“Ensuring that end customers have visibility of their goods, wherever they may be in the supply chain, is a prerequisite in today’s connected world,” said Mike Fitzgerald, Chairman of Net Feasa.
“We believe that our solution can help Carrier Transicold’s customers take an important step in a digital transformation that will see immediate cost reductions, improved operational efficiencies, a reduced carbon footprint and offer end customers unique and reliable visibility to all connected containers.”
Carrier Transicold operates in approximately 160 countries, offering equipment and services for refrigerated transport and cold chain visibility, including container refrigeration systems and generator sets, direct-drive and diesel truck units, and trailer refrigeration systems.
“This collaboration comes at a pivotal time to meet the growing network and development of our BluEdge Partner Program,” said Tan Bor Yow, Senior Channel Manager, BluEdge, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold.
“Our container refrigeration service providers are at the forefront of digital transformation, and this agreement helps ensure they are empowered with the right tools to better service customers, improve asset visibility and streamline processes.”
