Monitor returnable/reusable containers in the field

Growers and processors in the agricultural industry are making increasing use of cost-effective, returnable and reusable containers. Monitoring these key assets in the field is essential for operational efficiency as well as for protecting containers from damage or theft. Roambee's asset monitoring services make it possible to easily keep track of containers without costly outlay of capital for software and equipment. Using next-generation technology and a pay-as-you-go business model, Roambee provides essential data on location, condition, and security. Roambee alerts, reporting, and analytics plus additional BeeCentral services deliver increased efficiency while reducing costs. 

Protect your investments. Returnable and reusable containers come in a range of sizes, materials, and configurations. Metal containers are in widespread use, and plastic containers are increasingly popular due to their weight, strength, airflow capabilities, and flexible design. Because these containers are reusable and easy to transport, they are exceptionally vulnerable to being misplaced, misused, or stolen. Roambee's long-lasting and rechargeable devices (“Bees”) help growers and processors protect their investment in containers.
