Monitor the impacts your equipment has been exposed to during transport and shipments
Next level logistics and supply chain management with shock sensor
Logistics managers know that assets are at high risk of damage during transport and shipment.
They will also tell you that this damage unfortunately is often not discovered before the cargo arrives at the final destination. This makes it difficult to determine insurance responsibilities as you cannot prove where and when the accident occurred.
Full visibility of handling and mishandling with the Trusted tracking solution
An attached Trusted tracking device gives you full visibility with its built-in shock sensor – in some industries known as an impact recorder.
The tracking device records and monitors impacts which helps you control the handling of your equipment or provides you data that can be used for a compliance report of your transports.
It can alert you when potential damage events occur in real-time or help you prove where and when damage occurred by logging shock events even when out of coverage.
Measure impacts during the entire shipment of containers by rail transport or road transport. Or follow up on crucial points of transit such as the handling on harbors which, from our many years of experience of helping customers manage damage, is a point of high risk of cargo damage.
B&W Vølund has reduced damaged related-costs by analyzing shock impacts
B&W Vølund uses data from Trusted Visibility Suite™ to analyze when their cargo has been exposed to potential drops during transport and shipment.
By being able to control the handling of their valuable cargo, they have experienced several cost savings.
How does the shock sensor work?
The 3-axis accelerometer records impacts and vibrations. The X Y Z accelerometer can detect the direction of the impact. Set up a maximum threshold on, e.g. 5 G and receive alarms when the threshold exceeds.
The shock sensor enables you to identify:
- G-force impacts measurement
- Directions of impacts
- Real-time alerts and historical data analytics
- Time and location of events
All this helps you identify the causes of the impacts and mishandling to your cargo and equipment in transit and makes you able to react quickly and make smart decisions.
Use the shock data for documentation of the handling, create lower shipping costs and improve customer information and satisfaction.
Digitalizing your business
There is an increasing need for optimizing processes and securing planned delivery without damage. These issues can be handled and controlled with a simple data logger that provides valuable digital information.
If you’re interested in digitalizing your business and don’t know how a data logger works, you can start here. This guide will give you a complete understanding.
