What is Container Tracking
Container tracking provides real-time information of containers using various sensors, satellite, and a back-end system, allowing different parties to take precautionary measures or react to unexpected incidents with more time.
More about Container Tracking
The recent development of Internet of Things (IoT) has made container tracking possible. The sensor attached to the exterior of the container will transmit the location of the container to the satellite, which then relays the information to an application in a back-end system. The system will process the information and make it available to different parties.
Container tracking provides reassurance to the recipients and allows them to plan their operational activities or make contingency plans in advance. Furthermore, suppliers can also proactively act in response to different situations, such as damage or loss of cargo, according to the information generated by the container tracking system.
