ZIM deploys tracking devices for Hoopo Systems

ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. (ZIM) has signed a deal with Hoopo Systems Ltd. to install cutting-edge tracking devices across its dry-van container fleet.

In 2022, ZIM announced an investment in Hoopo Systems, a company specialising in the development of innovative tracking solutions for unpowered assets.

According to ZIM, Hoopo recently completed the development of hoopoSense Solar, its new product for the maritime industry, enabling ZIM to outline an extensive project to integrate these tracking devices into ZIM’s dry-van container fleet.

Eli Glickman, President, and CEO of ZIM said: “We are delighted to witness the fruition of our investment in Hoopo’s unique technological solution. We are now ready to deploy their cutting-edge, durable, and cost-efficient tracking devices on a large scale.

“This deployment will significantly elevate our service levels, providing invaluable information to our customers while ensuring transparency and reliability.”
