Reefer's Smart Management

ORBCOMM has more than 30 years developing IoT technologies, delivering innovative and intelligent solutions for the transportation, supply chain, warehousing and inventory markets.

Smart Temperature Monitoring

The combination of ReeferConnect system and ORBCOMM CT3500 device enables intelligent monitoring and control of reefer containers.

This combined solution provides complete visibility and control, as well as flexible connectivity options and a reliable data flow.



Get actionable data to drive better business decisions

Streamline Operations

Reduce costs and boost efficiency with remote pre-trip inspctions (PTI) and predictive maintenance to keep assets in service and making money.

See, even at sea

See through blind spots using multi-network IoT connectivity from terrestrial, satellite, AIS data and innovative vessel-based network.

Protect cargo

Reduce claims, theft and insurance premiums with AI-driven alerts that enable you to remotely correct temperatures before loads are compromised.

Share data across platforms

Seamless interoperability lets you integrate data from third-party devices into third-party enterprise systems to support data and vessel sharing partnerships.

Exceed customer expectations

Meet the increasing demand for shipment visibility and traceability to gain a competitive edge, improve customer retention and mitigate supply chain risk.

  • Manages exceptions and resolves issues around the clock.

Satellite AIS

  • Supplement with satellite AIS data to see any container.

Every asset. One platform

  • Manage containers, chassis, gensets, railcars and more.


The CT 3500 is the ultimate technology in remote reefer management, with 24/7 monitoring and control, besides complete OEM integration for quick reactions to temperature and humidity issues.


The CT 3500 provides detailed reporting, analysis and alerts, ensuring compliance, efficiency and mitigating risk.

Allows monitoring and control of reefers at every point in the supply chain and can be integrated with all major OEM models.

Global LTE coverage (2G/3G/4G), support for LoRa, Bluetooth 5 and NFC technology, plus optional satellite connectivity. More.


  • The CT 3500 device has a battery and can be magneto-fixed (Plug and Play) on the outside of the container or on the front rack;

  • Once connected, the CT 3500 will collect data from the OEM controller and send this data to the ReeferConnect app;

  • The integrated system updates the data every 15 minutes or at hourly intervals, defined by the customer;
