Smart Container

A shipping container with Artificial Intelligence


The Smart Container is a shipping container that provides end-to-end visibility and traceability.

With this solution, logistics stakeholders can reduce their risks and act proactively on events throughout the supply chain. 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.
