OnAsset Intelligence Inc., a provider of machine-to-machine wireless asset tracking, sensing and control solutions, announced a partnership with Flemming Cargo Securement to help transportation and logistics companies minimize risk in the supply chain and proactively intervene when cargo is compromised during transit.
OnAsset’s Sentry technology is designed to sense the temperature, pressure, humidity, light, motion, speed, shock and vibration of any asset transported via truck, plane, rail or intermodal freight. Sentry is used to track the whereabouts and environmental conditions of cargo.
FCS is designed to provide 24×7 monitoring services for the OnAsset tracking devices and other services such as security evaluations, covert shadowing of cargo in high-theft areas, reverse logistics and multiphased recovery plans in the event of a theft. FCS says it maintains a network of 189,000 law enforcement contacts throughout North America and provides the immediate capability to dispatch these contacts in case of emergency.
The companies say the combination of OnAsset and FCS produces a turnkey solution that takes the worries out of transporting high-value cargo across the supply chain. “FCS is an expert at interpreting the Sentry data, and turning it into actionable intelligence,” says Adam Crossno, OnAsset president and chief executive officer. “With more than 20 years of experience in the trucking industry, and a robust database of law enforcement contacts, FCS’ services provide a perfect complement to our asset tracking technology.”
“OnAsset’s technology has helped us identify and prevent dozens of heists, which have saved our clients millions of dollars this year alone,” says Ray Flemming, CEO of FCS. “Given the unprecedented rise in cargo theft on our nation’s highways, any company that ships high-value goods should consider deploying a solution like ours, to enhance their visibility and provide the capabilities needed to stop theft in their supply chain.”
