Hapag-Lloyd launches remote reefer monitoring system

Hapag-Lloyd has fitted its fleet of reefer containers with real-time monitoring technology. The German carrier announced at the Transport Logistic exhibition in Munich, that it would begin installing its Hapag-Lloyd LIVE system in its fleet of 100,000 reefer units. It said that, as the programme is rolled out across its reefer fleet, shippers using dry containers could also request the technology.

The reefer technology has been provided by transport technology company Globe Tracker, which has developed an end-to-end remote reefer monitoring technology. “We are honoured to have been chosen by Hapag-Lloyd because of our innovative strength and ability to provide a world-class cold chain visibility solution. We are extremely impressed with the rigorous detail, focus, diligence and high quality of their selection process, and could not be more pleased with the result,” said Jákup Lamhauge, CEO of Globe Tracker. The connectivity between vessels, inland distribution modes, terminals and the carrier’s headquarters and shippers has been provided by Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson.
