An agreement with Sony Network Communications Europe (Sony) signed GateHouse Maritime for their cargo tracking solution, Visilion, to utilise its new data platform, OceanIO to extend the range of tracking for oceangoing cargo.
OceanIO by GateHouse Maritime, a provider of ocean supply chain visibility and predictability services, is designed to be easily integrated with existing applications and is scalable, with more services to follow.
“Utilising OceanIO, Sony improves visibility of goods in transit from port to port. IoT technology and data analytics are key to the digital transformation of logistics,” Martin Dommerby Kristiansen, CEO at GateHouse Maritime said.
Based on reusable smart trackers with sensors and a cloud service, Sony’s cargo tracking solution, Visilion, continuously collects and uploads data that can be viewed on an intuitive web interface.
At the same time, it provides notifications regarding arrival and departure, location, temperature, shock, tilt, and humidity.
Erik Lund, Head of the Tracking Division, Visilion at Sony Network Communications Europe highlighted that, “GateHouse Maritime’s OceanIO platform combines extensive and comprehensive data sources to provide a robust and scalable foundation to extend the range and functionality of ocean visibility for the Visilion tracking solution”.
