SeaCube Containers, a global leader in gensets and reefer containers, and Globe Tracker, a leader in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for logistics assets, have announced a partnership to provide IoT-enabled gensets for Ocean Network Express (ONE).
The cutting-edge IoT solution is designed to provide cellular communication of operational parameters from gensets including, fuel level, battery voltage, incidents and alarms and remote shut-off capability for certain genset brands.
John Harnett, Senior Director Marine and Intermodal at Globe Tracker commented the IoT partisanship saying that, “We are extremely pleased to be working with SeaCube in providing this best-in-class genset solution to ONE.
“In genset telematics, we are the only provider integrated into the micro-controller of 2 out of the 3 leading brands in North America.
“This provides ONE with the most robust amount of data and assists in setting maintenance intervals, reducing maintenance costs, extending asset life, monitoring fuel consumption and having full operational visibility of their genset assets.
Greg Tuthill, Chief Commercial Officer at SeaCube, said, “The growing demand for greater tracking, transparency, security, diagnostics and asset fleet management using smart technology will continue to be a key driver for leased solutions.
“By partnering with Globe Tracker, we will continue to enhance our leading-edge technology solutions and expand our commitment to the intermodal industry by providing smart asset technology leased products.
The IoT solutions highlight the recent increase in IoT deployments in maritime logistics which is improving visibility and effectiveness across reefer fleets. The gensets are already being built and will be operational by December 2019.
