Shipping companies around the world ship many tons of items annually. All these items, worth trillions, are packaged and shipped in containers that are placed on cargo ships or planes for transit to their destination. Over 6 million shipping containers on huge cargo ships are sailing through the high seas of the earth right now. In 2013, the International shipping industry moved 120 million containers worth an estimated $4 trillion.
Every year, 10s of thousands of these containers disappear and are never seen again, causing financial losses for shipping companies and individual owners. Some containers are stolen through organized syndicates, other shipments are halted by pirates, and catastrophic natural events or ordinary accidents can occur along the way.
Our GPS container tracking system provides constant monitoring of containers throughout the entire journey, right from the factory to the destination. Whether passing through customs inspection points or stopping at ports or even when the container is on trucks or trains, the system monitors container locations and the condition of the freight at all times. Incidences of break-ins, unauthorized openings or temperature anomalies are captured by our asset tracking device worldwide.
