Smart Containers for Full Supply Chain Visibility

Further digitalization in the logistics industry is happening with "Smart Containers" being introduced that enable 24/7 end to end visibility and supply chain optimisation on land and at sea for more transparency, safety and cost-efficiency.

Smart containers make it possible to generate near real-time data and monitor the movement and condition of your cargo at any given point in time, anywhere through this permanent, electronic high-tech device.

There is no doubt that this cutting-edge connective technology will rapidly becoming the new shipping standard to improve shippers experiences. It's user-friendly hub allows efficient analytics, easy set-up of alerts and personalised notifications.

Its tracking capabilities include:

At this stage only a few carriers have these available and they are charging about USD90 to USD120 per container per trip.

This level of visibility has long been sought after by my clients, particularly for high value cargo, and will definitely be a game changer in the logistics industry and no doubt highlight where efficiencies can obtained.

Please contact me to learn more.

All for now,

Brad Skelton
