Sierra Wireless launched Acculink Cargo, a new managed Internet of Things (IoT) solution that companies can quickly deploy to track the location and condition of high-value and sensitive assets. Acculink Cargo leverages Sierra Wireless’ unique expertise in IoT devices, global connectivity and cloud to deliver a single solution companies can use to monitor the near real-time status of assets anywhere in the world, as they move through their supply chains.
Acculink Cargo enables electronics manufacturers, cold chain carriers, general freight carriers, shippers and third-party logistics firms to gain the supply chain visibility they require to avoid shipping delays, minimize dwell time, prevent theft and remediate environmental conditions.
“When it comes to high-value and sensitive assets, companies no longer want to just track their location as they travel through their supply chains. Today, they expect to be able to monitor the condition of these assets in near real-time as well,” says Rupal Nanavati, VP and general manager of IoT applications, Sierra Wireless. “Acculink Cargo addresses these needs, with an easy-to-deploy, fully integrated managed solution from the global leader in IoT.”
- Acculink Cargo can also alert customers if an asset is exposed to light, changes in temperature, humidity, shock or other conditions that might spoil or otherwise damage it.
- Acculink Cargo fully integrates edge devices, global network connectivity and a cloud-based application.
- Users can analyze real-time and historical shipping data to uncover trends and other information.
