The Smart Container reduces transportation costs while monitoring what is happening in real-time to the container itself and the cargo. It therefore provides real-time actionable information which increases the efficiency of the logistics process. A large suit of sensors are available which measure: temperature, humidity, pressure, GPS, altitude, impact, door opening, light and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Additionally, the Smart Container is insulated for the transport of sensitive goods.

  • Reduces up to 20% of CO2 emissions from transportation or up to 5 tons per container per year.
  • Real-time connectivity

The Financial Benefits
