StarTrak receives $0.75m order from Exel Transportation Services

The two-way command and control monitoring systems are to be deployed on Exel's existing fleet of 500 refrigerated intermodal trailers, which are transported primarily by intermodal railcar and without company drivers.

ReeferTrak's geofencing capability automatically records the time and place that responsibility for the trailer changes hands during the shipment, enabling Exel to remotely monitor the individual performance of each rail carrier, determine fuel usage and manage shipment quality.

According to Joseph Garrity, general manager, Refrigerated Intermodal, Exel has unique refrigerated operations, and frequently needs to control and pre-trip systems remotely.

Furthermore, StarTrak's EVP Tom Robinson points out that the system is oriented towards providing the customer with assurances that intermodal-based freight is delivered under the proper conditions and that the customer's operating costs are controlled through the process.
