Protect fragile goods and prove mishandling or theft
Tilt sensor opens for new ways of tracking your assets
With a mounted tracking device from Trusted, you can track the orientation of your equipment determined by the built-in 3-axis accelerometer.
This feature is a cost-effective tool to provide you with information on improper handling during shipment or even to prevent theft.
Where and when
You probably know the tilt stickers you can place on equipment during transport. The disadvantage of these stickers, however, is that you cannot prove when an incident happened.
With the Trusted tracking solution you will be alerted immediately when the event occurs and provided with the time and location of the tilting.
This feature can be used for documentation to determine who is responsible for the incident.

Tilt sensor protects your cargo against theft
The tilt sensor is a great way to see if shipments came from A to B without outside meddling.
An example of the use of the tilt sensor comes from a customer in logistics.
Here they experienced theft from their transports and therefore mounted Trusted trackers to some of their pallets.
And sure enough, soon after, the tilt sensor could report how thieves turn pallets upside down, cut into the package from the bottom to take products, before turning pallets back up again.
Normally, everything would look untouched and the package would reach the destination or customer with missing items creating customer dissatisfaction and substantial extra costs.
This would however be stopped by tracking tilt.
- With the tracking device, outside meddling would quickly be established.
- Alarms and the precise time and location of the occurrence would alert you to the whereabouts in real-time.
- You would be able to alert the police with concrete evidence for an easily solved case.
