Ocean Network Express (ONE) has partnered with Sony Network Communications Europe to develop a smart container solution across its global fleet.
This collaboration will bring together ONE’s cargo shipping experience with Sony’s expertise in the development and innovation of world-class sensing and connectivity technologies.
The integration of smart container solutions is slated to provide ONE with better visibility of its container fleet, allowing it to make faster and proactive decisions and enabling more efficient container movement.
By leveraging Sony’s expertise in developing innovative sensing and connectivity technologies, ONE aims to create a smarter, more efficient shipping experience for both themselves and their customers.
According to ONE, the technology-enabled containers will also provide customers with real-time updates throughout their shipment’s journey, resulting in more reliable shipping data for easy and transparent communication with relevant stakeholders.
This will enable ONE’s customers to have greater visibility and transparency into their cargo, ensuring a more streamlined shipping experience.
