Intermodal Condition Monitoring Meets Remote Management

Globe Tracker and SensorClip partner to advance refrigerated transportation power monitoring and cargo loss prevention

Hamburg, GermanyOct. 11, 2013Globe Tracker International (GTI), a provider of global trade data sharing, autonomous asset tracking and monitoring, and related data analytics, announced its partnership with SensorClip ApS, a supplier of power alarm products for the mobile refrigerated industry. The companies will deliver seamlessly integrated wireless tracking, power condition monitoring, and remote management of refrigerated containers (reefers) and generators (gensets) for intermodal transportation worldwide.

SensorClip developed a mobile, wireless battery-operated power alarm solution for tracking the normal operation of refrigeration and other products in which failure can result in expensive losses. This solution is extensible to collect and report a variety of additional sensor data, such as temperature and humidity, and communicate that with and without alarms to a host server.

SensorClip’s unit will be integrated into GTI’s Smart Autonomous Asset Solution, in particular the GTI Networks, to allow monitoring of power conditions, and integrate that information into the rest of the GTI tracking and monitoring data. This capability will bring wireless tracking and monitoring of power assets to improve cold chain efficiency and cost of operation.

The SensorClip product received accolades for its combination of technical innovation, functionality, ease of use and cost of ownership. The company plans, with partnerships such as with GTI, to present this solution into new markets.

With its Smart Autonomous Asset Solution, GTI aims to change the way the supply chain thinks about asset tracking, management and monitoring on land and sea. Its solution is a suite of asset visibility devices and networks, and is now commercially available. The suite includes GTI’s Trade Data Exchange Network (TDEN), Smart Autonomous Asset Network (SAAN) and Globe Tracker Communications Unit. Together, they deliver a functional and reliable global tracking, monitoring and trade data sharing solution.

“Power interruptions to reefers during intermodal transit and interim periods result in expensive losses, which are almost always preventable. We are delighted to be working with Globe Tracker to advance the visibility and prevention of power problems, and help customers manage their power-providing and power-consuming assets efficiently,” said Lasse Øst Petersen, CEO of SensorClip.
