MSC and TRAXENS Speeds Up Smart Container Deployment

MSC and TRAXENS Speeds Up Smart Container Deployment
Logistics Manager

One of the world’s leading container shipping and logistics company, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has sped up their deployment of smart containers for their customers across the globe using IoT solutions developed by their partner TRAXENS.

Over the next few months, the shipping behemoth has committed to equipping 50,000 dry cargo containers to feed the increasing demand from shoppers who opt for TRAXENS solutions.

The TRAXENS solution provides shippers with an Internet-connected device to permanently fix on dry cargo containers. This enhances the container allowing it to become a smart, connected object which collates and sends real-time data on its position and movements throughout its journey.

Various other factors have to be accounted for when ensuring cargo remains secure, such as doors opening and closing, temperature, humidity level and shocks and vibrations. One of the main issues in today’s global supply chains is the lack of real-time, end-to-end visibility resulting in importers or exporters having no visibility and transparency over the whole journey. However, the TRAXENS solution will now put an end to this issue.

President and CEO of the Mediterranean Shipping Company Group, Diego Aponte explained, “MSC believes that the real-time tracking of containers is the future of the shipping industry, while shipping lines should, of course, compete on service, we will achieve better results for our customers by working in a more harmonized way on technology and innovation. Smart containers are a perfect example of where we can cooperate according to industry standards to make our services truly comprehensive and TRAXENS is the top innovator in this area.”
