Sogester chooses RTE’s reefer monitoring system

Sociedade Gestora de Terminais S.A. (Sogester), a joint venture between APM Terminals and the Gestor de Fundos of Angola, has started running the reefer monitoring system by Refrigerated Transport Electronics' (RTE) company, named GRASP 3.0, that enables the automatic monitoring and control of all reefer operations.

The new GRASP system allows the user to monitor reefers operations in real-time and control them by remotely doing downloads, pre-trip inspection form (PTI), set point changes, defrosts, among other commands.

Furthermore, the monitoring system, which is compatible with all reefer manufacturers, allows observing power consumption without the need for any extra hardware, according to a statement.

"RTE is honoured to have been chosen by Sogester to provide our reefer monitoring solution and help them develop as one of the top Terminals in Africa," claimed RTE’s President, Donald Vinson who went on to explain that its system "allows Sogester to remotely monitor and control their reefer assets, reducing claims and optimising the safety and efficiency of their reefer operation."

Sogester has recently enabled phase one of a multi-phase project to monitor various terminals in Luanda, Namibie and Panguila.

Frans Jol, Managing Director of Sogester, stated that the container terminal in Angola chose the GRASP system due to all its powerful functionalities, proven reliability and easy integration capabilities.

"We now can automatically monitor and have control of our reefer operations and we feel that GRASP ™ 3.0 will take to the next level Sogester’s mission of providing first class service to our customers," added Jol.
