GE Equipment Services has announced that its trailer tracking system, GE VeriWise Asset Intelligence, is now available for use with refrigerated trailers. Thomas Konditi, general manager of GE’s Asset Intelligence business, notes that VeriWise has now been configured to work with Thermo King-equipped refrigerated trailers, and will be expanded to other makes.
The new option, he also points out, includes geofencing around specific addresses. When a VeriWise-equipped trailer passes through an assigned boundary, it generates a data report that can be received by e-mail or phone devices that read text messages. Already in use on dry vans, the VeriWise system sends an alert if the trailer
deviates from a planned route or if its doors and cargo have been accessed unexpectedly.
