The logistics specialist is launching the new version of SAVVY® CargoTrac. The solution has been expanded for use in rail freight traffic.

SAVVY® CargoTrac is a compact device that can be easily and safely installed on freight wagons and containers; the exact position is determined via GPS, GLONASS and/or GSM. Thanks to state-of-the-art HF technology, SAVVY® CargoTrac does not require any external antennae. Internal sensors record arrivals, travel direction and performance. The intelligent interface and software architecture enables immediate use with standard industrial sensors. Robust and extremely energy efficient, it is guaranteed to require very little maintenance and an autonomous service life of up to 10 years even under the harshest conditions. The SAVVY® Synergy Portal processes the acquired data, transforming it into actionable information that is visualised in clear and easy-to-use dashboards. In addition to the inventory, which is always up-to-date, the solution reports on possible damages, makes it possible to control and monitor temperature-controlled transports and enables flexible maintenance and repair intervals.
