Tracking of Containers

Optimized container logistics through real-time tracking

In order to transport raw materials and intermediate products for further processing or delivery on the factory premises, reusable load carriers and containers are used in industrial production. The more complex the production process and the higher the number of different processing steps, the more important it becomes to know the exact location, content, and status of these containers at all times in order to avoid search times and to be able to keep processes flexible.

By using RTLS technology in digital production and logistics systems, containers can be identified and located in real-time. Without manual steps such as scanning, a transparent overview of stocks and the status of the entire production is created. If the data deviate from defined guideline values, these systems can be used to detect and correct errors more quickly.

Benefits of Container Tracking with RTLS

Loss Prevention

In case of suspicious movements or deviations from predefined routes, immediate notifications can be triggered to take security measures.

Asset Management

Monitor container whereabouts, optimize deployment, schedule maintenance intervals, and improve container availability.

Better Customer Service

Customers can track the status of their shipments, receive accurate delivery time information and get full visibility along the entire supply chain

Localize / RTLS

Presence Detection (IPS)

Detection of objects and people in zones for cost-optimized localization

Ultrawideband (UWB)

Very accurate positioning to +-20cm for the highest demands

Angle of Arrival (AoA)

Combination of location accuracy and system costs with angle measurement
