FreightWatch International, a global logistics security solutions provider, introduced its FreightWatch Geo F2 Tracker, an advanced, embeddable tracking device available to the market for tracking and monitoring cargo, identifying its whereabouts, preventing cargo theft or recovering shipments if a load is stolen.

“The F2 Tracker simultaneously allows for real-time visibility into a shipment and disruption management of the supply chain,” says Ron Greene, general manager of FreightWatch International USA. “As a part of our logistics security services, FreightWatch tracks and monitors the shipment’s every move.”

The small F2 Tracker is designed to be inserted inside packaging as small as a pill bottle, which then can be placed directly in a box as a part of the shipment. The device is entirely embedded in the shipment, allowing FreightWatch to covertly – or secretly – track in real-time the shipment’s whereabouts versus tracking just the truck or trailer location, which can be important if a theft occurs and a shipment is separated from the truck.

With real-time reporting capability and Web-based monitoring functionality, the F2 Tracker is designed to operate in impaired environments with no clear view of the sky. Side benefits include improved supply chain efficiencies, increasing visibility into and control over the supply chain with an up-to-the-minute view of where a shipment is at any given moment.

“The addition of the F2 Tracker enhances our ability to provide our customers with the absolute best technology on the market, and when layered with FreightWatch’s suite of security services prevents cargo theft and secures corporate supply chains,” Greene says.
