- ZIM selected Hoopo's tracking solution following a comprehensive evaluation process. ZIM’s global rollout project will span over the next few years, with ZIM intending to install the hoopoSense Solar on its dry-container fleet.
- Hoopo's solution provides ZIM and its customers with the location and status of dry containers and cargo, throughout the entire journey. Customers gain automated in-gate and out-gate notifications from geofences, they can better predict arrival times, identify potential bottlenecks and quickly implement corrective measures to mitigate anomalies in their supply-chain.
- Featuring a military-graded solar panel, the hoopoSense Solar trackers function effectively even in shadows and sub-optimal sunlight, guaranteeing reliable operation in diverse environments. Leveraging Hoopo's extensive experience in tracking unpowered assets, such as chassis and dollies, the highly adaptable, machine-based tracking system optimizes power consumption, providing an unparalleled battery life of 12+ years. Designed for large-scale deployments, each hoopoSense Solar tracker requires no maintenance after installation due to its solar-powered battery and over-the-air updates. Furthermore, the trackers are IP67 and support the ATEX certification.
