Traxens introduces new container tracker version
MARSEILLE : Traxens, the world’s first smart-container service provider for the global supply chain industry, unveiled today the new third edition of the Traxens-Box 3, its permanent container tracker and flagship product for shipping lines, freight forwarders and BCOs.
With the shift to green methanol-powered vessels and the increasing safety requirements of the International Maritime Organization, the Traxens-Box 3 IoT device has been completely redesigned to meet the highest level of ATEX certification on the market for explosion safety onboard ships.
Various shipping products are now being subjected to new explosion safety requirements as the shipping industry moves towards clean energy such as methanol-based fuel.
The French logistics service provider noted that with the shift to green methanol-powered vessels and the increasing safety requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the new IoT device has been completely redesigned to meet the highest level of ATEX certification on the market for explosion safety onboard ships.
“As an innovative technological company, Traxens feels it’s important to start as early as possible to adapt to our customers’ future sustainable supply chains,” said Cedric Rosemont, CEO of Traxens.
Added to the ATEX redesign, the battery life now reaches seven years, translating to an increase of 50% compared to the previous model.
Traxens highlighted that several thousand of Traxens-Box 3 devices have already been pre-ordered by Traxens’ main customers who will start to deploy them in the following months.
The world’s top shipping lines, which are also Traxens’ shareholders, are already using the two previous versions of the device to convert their assets into smart containers, according to a statement.
