Yusen Logistics invests in container tracking tech

Yusen Logistics UK has invested in new real-time tracking technology, designed to track and measure the temperature, humidity and location of dry and refrigerated freight containers, according to a company statement.

The ISO9002 accredited system can be fitted to the door of any standard ISO container, and also monitors risks such as irregular door activity, shock

impact and has inbuilt geo-fencing functionality, the statement said.

The solution provides full end-to-end reporting, including interval and event-based SMS and email alerts, in addition to location and status tracking via an online web portal. Yusen says it gives customers full visibility of their products at every stage from the point of loading.
