Maersk has released its revamped Remote Container Management platform featuring the virtual assistant Captain Peter. Captain Peter keeps an eye on the container’s temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels, and notifies the customer if something needs attention. The data is now cloud-based for increased agility and can be easily shared as well as configured to the customer’s specific needs.
“Over the last two years, our RCM product has proven good value to our reefer customers, but we have also identified key areas of improving such a cargo visibility tool,” said Ken West, Reefer Digital Development Manager at Maersk. “With Captain Peter, we are significantly elevating the customer experience of working with the data and building the foundation for delivering even more advanced features around it.”
Wiskerke has been one of the key customers involved in the development of Captain Peter. When it comes to tracking their reefer shipments, the visibility offered makes the tool a clear winner for the company.
“I choose Maersk and Captain Peter over others because I can see what is happening with my cargo. You can’t imagine the pain I’m feeling when I can’t see what is happening during the voyage,” said Chayenne Wiskerke, Managing Director of Wiskerke Onions.
Maersk plans to continue the dialogue with customers and add even more advanced features to the new reefer platform going forward.
