ORBCOMM Supports Industry Transition to Controlled Atmosphere Containers for Refrigerated Cargo Transport

Launches enhanced refrigerated container monitoring platform with advanced technology to enable remote command and control of new, energy-efficient containers

Boca Raton, Florida, UNITED STATES

ROCHELLE PARK, N.J., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the latest release of its ReeferConnect and VesselConnect platforms, which have been extended to manage the intermodal industry’s new, energy-efficient Controlled Atmosphere containers. ORBCOMM is introducing this new application feature set at Intermodal Europe, the world-leading exhibition and conference spanning all areas of container transport and logistics across road, rail and sea, in Hamburg, Germany from November 5-7, 2019.

Controlled Atmosphere containers utilize sophisticated technology for atmosphere control by regulating carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen levels, enhancing the quality and shelf life of perishable produce. These state-of-the-art containers create an optimum atmosphere that enables high respiratory produce, such as bananas and avocados, to be transported further and over a longer time period, while still arriving in fresh and pristine condition for the supermarket shelves. ORBCOMM has fully implemented the Controlled Atmosphere technology into its ReeferConnect and VesselConnect platforms for leading OEMs Daikin and StarCool, enabling remote command and control of their containers, including setting the Controlled Atmosphere functionality, initiating pre-trip inspections and accessing data logs.

“ORBCOMM is committed to maintaining its position as a leader and innovator in the industrial IoT by continuing to develop new technologies and expanding the capabilities across our solution portfolio to meet our customers’ evolving needs and market challenges,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM Inc. “With the technology advancements we’ve made in refrigerated cargo transport, we are the first IoT company to support Controlled Atmosphere containers, which will take intermodal operations to a higher level of operational efficiency and compliance, while ensuring optimal care for high-value, perishable cargo.”
