Fleet tracking and management patents applied for

Alanco : 20 August, 2008  (New Product)
Fuel management functions added to fleet management and tracking system from Star Trak Systems
Alanco Technologies has announced that subsidiary StarTrak Systems has added three key patent applications to its intellectual property portfolio, now totalling 14 pending and issued patents covering a broad spectrum of functionality related to wireless refrigerated transport ("reefer") monitoring, including:

* Sensing rapid reefer fuel loss and monitoring refuelling events, allowing operators to detect leakage or theft and evaluate fuel consumption and costs.

* Capability to remotely broadcast multiple reefer power on and off settings, eliminating operator involvement.

* Remote temperature setting, allowing customers to ensure reefer temperature is consistent with shipment documentation.

* Monitoring wireless pre-cooling, loading and unloading notifications, allowing customers to evaluate idle time and excess fuel usage at loading and unloading facilities.

* Remote geo-fenced inventory reporting of reefer trailers by customer location, and their associated service state, allowing customers to manage available trailers at drop-off and pick-up locations.

* Capability to generate standard freight messages based on freight asset behaviour.

Tom Robinson, StarTrak executive vice president, commented, "Over the past decade StarTrak has pioneered innovative technical solutions for reefer wireless monitoring and logistical support services and has earned the dominant share of this emerging market. We believe that StarTrak's unique, proprietary technology, including our patent portfolio, delivers to our customers industry-leading wireless reefer management solutions and provides the Company with formidable barriers to competition."
