Comprehensive Monitoring Capabilities

These sensors reportedly offer comprehensive monitoring capabilities, including real-time tracking of location, acceleration, temperature, humidity, impacts, tilt, light conditions, and container damage. Sateliot said the intelligent detection of these variables ensures secure control of merchandise at all times, addressing the industry's pressing concerns such as cargo theft, tampering, accidents, and damages.

Addressing Industry Concerns

According to the press release, currently, 99 percent of maritime transport containers remain untracked or uninspected due to the absence of reliable cellular and satellite connectivity. To counter this, shipping companies are making significant investments to make 25 percent of their containers smart by 2025. Maritime companies reportedly handle 80 percent of international trade goods.

Global Connectivity

Sateliot said its technology enables the extension of 5G NB-IoT connectivity to any corner of the world without relying on terrestrial coverage. Operators can connect to the nanosatellite network via a roaming service for coverage extension.
