ContainerSafe Transport Asset Tracking Available on Daily Basis

OnAsset Intelligence : 08 April, 2010  (New Product)
OnAsset Intelligence is making its wireless asset tracking system, ContainerSafe, available on daily hire for tracking high value cargo whilst in transit
ContainerSafe Transport Asset Tracking Available on Daily Basis
OnAsset Intelligence, a provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless asset tracking, sensing, and control solutions, and TransCore, a worldwide transportation services company, have introduced a turnkey M2M service application that enables customers to pay for cargo security per day of active use while the cargo is in transit, making it easy for customers to track and monitor high-value cargo on a per shipment basis. For as little as $7 per day, customers can pack and ship a container with OnAsset's ContainerSafe device, utilize TransCore's complete forward and reverse logistics program, and monitor the device from point of origin to destination in real time over T-Mobile's global network -- all without paying a huge upfront capital expenditure to make it happen.

"Historically, the customers' challenge has been the business framework required to seamlessly adopt wireless monitoring and security technologies into their everyday workflow," says Adam Crossno, President and CEO of OnAsset. "With this new easy-to-use turnkey solution, we are significantly impacting the visibility, security, and control our customers have within their supply chain. In addition to real-time monitoring, notification and logistics support, the ContainerSafe solution is unlocked via OnAsset's software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to provide information access and back-office integration connectivity to ERP systems like SAP or Oracle. For the first time, customers have access to an all-in-one service model that complements how intermodal carriers are already doing business - by shipment."

"This business model demonstrates that the M2M industry continues to not only provide innovative enabling technologies, but also unique business models that create a service infrastructure for high-value asset tracking," says John Horn, national director of M2M for T-Mobile USA.

Designed for self-service monitoring of most shipping containers, OnAsset's ContainerSafe products can be equipped with multiple sensors to track location, monitor the status of the container and goods inside, and to deter, detect, and delay theft. Installed or removed in less than one minute, the devices are so easy to use and install that no tools are required. Breach detection sensors are utilized to ensure that once the container is loaded, no attempts to reopen the container during transit can occur without notification. Unlike the one-time-use container seal locks often used today, ContainerSafe devices are reusable and designed to be an integral component of any intermodal carrier's cargo security strategy.

"Deploying highly intelligent reusable security devices is the critical step in achieving real-time shipping condition notifications - from theft to environmental condition updates," says Adam Crossno. "With our complete logistics service, customers deploying the ContainerSafe device avoid spending time and energy on determining the best way to return devices back to the shipping origin after reaching their destination. TransCore takes care of that for them."
