ONE Enhances Refrigerated Container Fleet with Carrier’s Lynx Fleet Solution
Ocean Network Express (ONE), which is one of the largest liner shipping companies globally, is installing Carrier Transicold’s Lynx™ Fleet solution onto its existing fleet of Carrier refrigerated containers. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.
Lynx Fleet will be installed with the latest features, including Reefer Health, which comprises Carrier’s proprietary technology to monitor near-live reefer unit performance as well as up to a 72-hours forecast, providing added visibility on location, movement and temperature of individual containers on a centralized data stream. This feature will allow fleet managers to download diagnostic information about their equipment, giving them added insights into the health of their reefers by reporting anomalies along with possible causes and potential measures to resolve.
“Harnessing the power of data and connectivity is one of our key strategic initiatives, and we are excited to join forces with Carrier,” said Kenichi Michida, Senior Vice President, Strategic Yield Management, ONE. “We are confident that Carrier’s Lynx Fleet will help increase fleet uptime and optimization, while reducing cargo spoilage risk and providing immense value for our customers. This will prove to be a critical piece in ultimately differentiating what we can offer to our customers.”
Lynx Fleet will offer prognostics and data analytics with features such as:
Improved fleet uptime through unit health analytics and prognostics using Carrier-unique features with proprietary technology.
Reduced Operational and Maintenance Costs as a result of optimized operational performance with preventative maintenance platform features
Incremental value through lower cargo spoilage and possible reduced insurance costs.
“We are pleased that Carrier’s Lynx Fleet – by facilitating precise, data-driven decision making – is able to support the pivotal role that ONE plays in global trade, and we look forward to moving ahead on this milestone achievement together,” said Campbell Brooke, General Manager, Telematics, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier.
