ZIM launches ZiMonitor to track refrigerated cargo

Recognizing that cold chain cargo has many risk points, ZIM Integrated Shipping Services has launched ZiMonitor, a real-time service that tracks refrigerated cargo from origin to destination.

Equipped with a GPS that monitors route deviations and a computer that can control temperature and humidity at all times, workers on the ground and at a call center manned 24/7 receive SMS or email alerts when a technical issue or human error puts cargo at risk. ZIM says the product features GDP compliance,

and predefined reports for logistical and operational analysis.

ZiMonitor collects real-time data to prevent risks, reduce insurance claims, enhance security and reduce costs. After all, a good monitoring solution will always be more economical than having to dispose of an entire shipment.
