According to spokesmen, these releases enable managers seeking to reduce costs, streamline compliance with global trade regulations, and accelerate customer fulfillment, to utilize these significant needs on a single, integrated platform.

“With this solution, they can be alerted to deviations in their shipment plans that may be indicative of security breaches,” he said... “For example, a truck that makes an unscheduled stop or a truck that takes an unplanned route.”

Maersk extends contract for advanced vessel tracking & monitoring solutions-Forwardernews

Over the past 18 months, the BigOceanData vessel tracking system has successfully been used to track Maersk Line’s fleet using fused data feeds. This is where the BigOceanData system takes Maersk’s own vessel data received via Fleet Broadband and combines it with satellite and terrestrial AIS, all backed up by ‘pay-as-you-go’ Inmarsat-C. This delivers a service capable of providing position reports every 10 minutes both in the open ocean and coastal waters. Maersk can then apply this information to optimize the performance of the fleet. This service is now covering up to 2,000 vessels carrying Maersk cargo and is accessed by up to 500 users.
