Challenges with
Shipping Container

Today, the most common method of tracking shipping containers is using built-in or user-installed GPS, however:

Challenge #1

This data provides just the container's location and is not actionable enough to optimize its use at scale.

Challenge #2

It isn't easy to aggregate container data from multiple vendors onto a single platform and ensure accuracy.

Challenge #3

It is not easy to monitor the condition of the goods inside the container.

How Roambee's Solution Works for Shipping Containers

Step 1: Visibility

Better visibility by combining order information with real-time location and condition data from IoT sensors affixed on shipping containers capable of recharging using renewable solar power and data streams from marine traffic, vessels, and port operations.

Step 2: Alerts & Signals

Built on verifiable visibility, alerts & signals empower better decisions and drive automation. For example, a business signal about container availability is derived by sensing use cycle milestones and full/empty status to maximize usage and rentals.

Step 3: Intelligence

Use AI-powered network insights & foresights for better supply chain planning & execution. For example, score unproductive container dwell times by geography, season, customer, and carrier and forecast this key performance indicator (KPI).

One of APAC's largest Out-Of-Gauge (OOG) Cargo operators is optimizing and automating its container fleet management using Roambee's intelligence. Combining real-time container location and status (full/empty) intelligence with historical dwell times at every CFS, port, and storage terminal, they were able to increase "revenue per container" by more than 77% through optimized rental patterns, better routing, and auditable SLAs.
