SecureSystem was pleased to participate in the ITS World Congress, in Hamburg, Germany, October 10 – 15, 2021, which focused on smart mobility and the digitization of transport. We welcomed the opportunity to present our cargo in-transit visibility solution to the more than 13,000 attendees and to share more about how SecureSystem augments supply chain transparency and security by turning ordinary shipping containers into smart, connected assets.
An estimated 20 million shipping containers transport $4 trillion of goods across the world every year. The SecureSystem solution enables advanced data collection and security monitoring for containers carrying high value or sensitive goods. The system also provides real-time world-wide awareness of a container’s location, internal conditions, and physical integrity. The industrial-grade technology, developed and tested by Airbus® Defense and Space, uses environmental sensors, physical security sensors, satellite, and cellular communication as well as GPS positioning and a patented cloud-based TrustCenter to transform containers into smart, interactive units, allowing comprehensive data analytics. Its mobile design allows for installing or removing the hardware on any standard container in a matter of seconds, but provides full supply chain transparency.
About the ITS World Congress
The ITS World Congress is the biggest event focused on smart mobility and the digitalisation of transport. Every year, ERTICO organises an ITS regional or World Congress in Europe. The Congresses are the yearly celebration of smart mobility: they underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), particularly in cities and regions where they are hosted, and are important channels to raise awareness of smart mobility solutions among policy makers, experts and the general public. They include live sessions where industry experts present the latest developments in ITS, a showcase of cutting-edge technology and an exhibition space.
