ORBCOMM announced that its new dry container telematics solution is commercially available through its global distribution network.
ccording to the company, this dry container solution helps shipping lines and their customers gain visibility and traceability so they can turn real-time data into decisions about their maritime operations.
The solution provides end-to-end monitoring for dry marine containers moving through complex supply chains around the world to make operations more transparent, secure and profitable.
The device reports data into ORBCOMM’s Maritime platform, which provides a single, integrated view of all assets—dry, reefer, genset and chassis—in one platform. It is also possible to seamlessly report data through APIs into customers’ proprietary platforms for optimal efficiency.
As explained, ORBCOMM’s solar-powered dry container tracking device is designed for large-scale deployments. It can be installed in as little as one minute with minimum asset downtime and no need for manual intervention after installation.
The device is certified to the ATEX Zone 2 explosion-proof standard. Additional wireless BLE sensors will also be supported to integrate other safety and productivity applications that will enhance the solution’s capabilities.
