Excel Transportation, Westerville, Ohio, will deploy 500 StarTrak ReeferTrack systems on its existing fleet of refrigerated intermodal trailers.

The ReeferTrak solution provides two-way logistical, monitoring and control capabilities for refrigerated trailer operations. Because Exel's trailer fleet travels by intermodal railcar for much of its shipment, the solution provides fuel monitoring and control capabilities, which permit efficient transportation management and remote control of special functions.

Intermodal shipments occur largely without company drivers, and the system identifies when customers shipments change handling responsibility. This visibility permits customers to manage the quality of the shipment by remote control and measure the operational performance of third parties when they are in control of the shipment.
