Moeco, a provider of visibility solutions that improve global supply chain operations, has launched a smart container monitoring solution that enables logistics companies to significantly reduce costs through improved visibility of the location and condition of every container.
The tracking solution works in conjunction with and extends the capabilities of Moeco Act Trackers, which use 4G and 5G cellular networks, and support 2G and 3G network data gathering, to provide logistics companies with real-time access to geolocation, temperature, humidity, light, and shock data for their pallets and packages.
Real-time tracking allows for the automatic acceptance of goods at intermediate points of the supply chain and reduces the number of goods that need to be checked manually. Since conditions are continuously monitored, only goods that have violated the conditions of transportation require manual checks by staff, thus reducing checkpoint labour costs.
Available today in more than 180 countries, the container monitoring solution is the most affordable, reliable and future-proof on the market. Moeco’s solution enables logistics companies to align with recent industry moves, such as the announcement from German shipping line Hapag-Lloyd that it plans to equip its entire container fleet with real-time tracking devices during 2023.
Moeco’s container tracker is also convenient, taking just two minutes to fit and activate, compared with other solutions that require as much as 20 minutes. The tracker is designed to operate for 10 years without maintenance, and enables container operators to increase revenue from 5 to 10 percent per container by providing a smart container-monitoring service that eliminates the need for manual checks.
Alexa Sinyachova, co-founder and CEO of Moeco, said: “We are already monitoring the supply chain in real time down to the pallet level, but the container tracker drastically improves supply chain transparency. It links data from pallet trackers to a separate container, which allows the user to determine not only the status, but also the exact location of the cargo. With our help, container operators can provide a completely new level of service and drive additional revenue.”
Logistics companies can access analytics on shipments in real time through a cloud platform via dashboards and receive regular updates via email and SMS. Moeco is the only tracking company to provide customers with full ownership of their data.
