“UNIT45 is an innovator and market leader in the European transport industry, and we are pleased to support their efforts to pioneer smart containers for the New Silk Road with ORBCOMM’s powerful IoT technology,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “By leveraging ORBCOMM’s intermodal solution, UNIT45 can ensure full visibility, conditioned transport and accurate recording of critical location and operational data for their containers and cargo from door to door, which will provide a strong and lasting Return on Investment.”
“It is essential for us to see where our container units are, monitor what is happening with them and remotely control the units, and we need to have all of this information directly on our computer screens,” said Jan Koolen, UNIT45 B.V.’s Managing Director. “[The] solution does all of this and more to help our shipping customers enhance the efficiency, stability and security of their transport operations, and we see [it] as an integral part of [our] value proposition for the long term.”
Deployment of the container monitoring solution is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017.
