Rochelle Park, NJ, February 29, 2016 – ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the new release of CargoWatch® Secure, a powerful, real-time cargo security and condition monitoring solution that provides complete shipment lifecycle awareness and visibility of dry and refrigerated cargo in transit and in storage. The application is designed to traverse across a variety of transportation modes and serve multiple parties from origin to destination.
Using its deep knowledge and expertise in transportation and logistics, ORBCOMM developed CargoWatch Secure for monitoring the global supply chain in real-time. The intuitive, easy-to-use application enables customers, including port/logistics zone operators, fleet owners, freight forwarders, customs/tax, and other government agencies, to detect, manage and correct supply chain anomalies in real-time, resulting in reduced losses and claims.
“With cargo theft at an all-time high and increasing threats to international security, ORBCOMM’s CargoWatch Secure solution combats these risks by providing real-time, end-to-end visibility into the supply chain whether the cargo is en route, being loaded on a container ship in a port or checking in at a distribution hub,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM. “By leveraging our robust cargo security application, customers can reduce revenue losses due to damaged, stolen or delayed cargo and enable cost savings through streamlined operations and more efficient asset utilization.”
In addition to combatting security risks, CargoWatch Secure provides tools to improve operational efficiency, enhance customer service and ensure compliance with government regulations including the Food and Drug Administration’s upcoming Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). CargoWatch Secure is able to transform trip data into billing and insurance records so customers can quickly manage accounts payable, complete audits and provide value-added services to customers such as shipment status, current location and estimated time of arrival. The feature-rich application also combines trip information, user-defined business rules and sensor data, such as exception-based alerts for door intrusion, unplanned/timed stops/deviations, geofences, temperature fluctuations, and tampering, with advanced reporting capabilities to deliver smart actionable data and customized reports.
ORBCOMM’s CargoWatch Secure supports ORBCOMM’s industry-leading cargo security device portfolio as well as select third-party devices that communicate with the application via RFID, GSM cellular, satellite, and ZigBee wireless technologies. In addition, CargoWatch Secure easily interfaces with partner systems for non-intrusive integration and quick, cost-effective implementation.
