From perishable foods and medicines to electronics, millions of items are shipped across the globe every day. While most reach their destinations safely and on time, many disappear or are damaged in transit. For the companies that own these assets, tracking and monitoring the condition of their goods can significantly reduce costs associated with loss and damage.
There are many tracking devices available. However, most rely on GPS and so require satellite connection. As a result, they are not able to penetrate container boxes or other obstacles. In addition, most tracking devices focus on just location tracking, lacking the capabilities to monitor temperature and transport conditions.
The solution is a new LoRaWAN®-based tracker series developed by Codepoint Technologies.
