Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced plans to install telematic devices on its reefer box fleet as part of its digitalisation strategy.
As refrigerated commodities are sensitive, ONE aims to provide customers with a comprehensive visibility of their cargo and optimised operational decision-making using telematic devices.
Such insights could reportedly enhance ONE’s existing suite of reefer solutions and ensure cargo arrives in optimal condition.
“The installation of telematic devices on our reefer box fleet is a testament to our unwavering dedication to enhancing customer experience while driving digital transformation in the containerised reefer trade,” said Kenichi Michida, Senior Vice President, Strategic Yield Management, ONE.
“We believe technology-enabled containers are the future of shipping, and we are excited to embark on this next step in our digital transformation journey using cutting-edge solutions to benefit our customers and industry,” added Michida.
According to ONE, the key benefits of installing telematic devices on its reefer box fleet include:
- Enhanced visibility: telematic devices will provide ONE with active monitoring data about temperature, humidity, and other conditions inside reefer containers. With this information, the company aims to better track the cargo’s condition and identify any potential problems as soon as they arise.
- Proactive decision-making: with active monitoring data, ONE could make more proactive decisions about cargo handling.
- Improved customer service: the carrier expects to provide its customers with more detailed information about the condition of their cargo and help them make better supply chain decisions.
