China International Marine Containers Ltd. (CIMC) and Savi Technology (www.savi.com) announced that they will establish a strategic partnership to co-develop a new class of shipping containers that capture, sense and wirelessly transmit real-time intelligence on the container’s contents, along with its condition, location and security status. The smart containers developed by CIMC and Savi are a key part of a newly emerging class of in-transit visibility systems for logistics, the companies say, that will improve operational efficiencies and inventory management while ensuring the security and integrity of the shipment. These solutions range from external electronic bolt seals to factory-installed intrusion detection, sensing and tracking systems.
