ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Coretex, a global provider of supply chain compliance and fleet management solutions, and Great Dane, a leading manufacturer of high-performance commercial transportation equipment, today announced a technology partnership surrounding the FleetPulse smart trailer solution at The International Foodservice Distributors Associations' (IFDA) Distribution Solutions Conference. The two companies, which jointly bring scale and complementary expertise, will offer customers a comprehensive solution for refrigerated trailers ("FleetPulse with Reefer Control by Coretex").
"We're thrilled to collaborate with a leader like Coretex and establish a foundation upon which reefer fleets have a complete solution for their trailer and refrigeration unit," said Mike Molitor, Director of Business Development for Great Dane. "FleetPulse continues to grow beyond just GPS to help meet the needs of today's most advanced fleets."
FleetPulse is a trailer telematics system that integrates with a variety of trailer components that collect precise measurements and allows fleets to keep watch over critical items like GPS location, tire inflation system, doors, trailer cargo weight (e.g. load status), burned-out lights, ABS fault codes, and actual mileage.
"One of the core principles behind FleetPulse is to have rigorous discipline around validating each connected component. The Coretex technology is a proven and tested platform and is trusted by some of the most sophisticated reefer fleets that use both Carrier and Thermo King assets," Molitor said. "Together, we provide refrigerated fleets a seamless, single source of data from the combined trailer and reefer unit and eliminate the annoyance of multiple subscriptions."
"Our alliance with Great Dane will provide refrigerated fleets with unprecedented peace of mind by receiving critical performance data about the trailer, the reefer unit and the cargo load itself – all within a single platform," said William Payne, Chief Executive Officer at Coretex. "By jointly focusing on providing compliance and performance assurance of both asset and load for the end customer, the FleetPulse/Coretex platform demonstrates the true value of a technology enabled fleet."
Coretex delivers compliance and fleet management solutions to more than 60,000 connected vehicles in commercial freight, construction, cold chain, waste and recycling industries. Coretex's cloud-based visualization platform helps customers worldwide turn rich data into automated business intelligence supporting safer, greener, and more productive business outcomes.
