Vantaa, Finland, 2007/06/29 - Over 90% of all goods, merchandise, hazardous materials, food & perishables, other cargo, for global consumption, traverse by containers - MobinTele.com.
The volume in 2006 reached in excess of 280 million containers. Almost a million container per day.
And increasing by over 18% / annum, compounded.
Yet the containers are the most insecure delivery and transport solution ever.
Security analysts have forecast that a container may be compromised to poison the food chain or transport weapons of mass destruction, poisonous substances, nuclear dust etc, and have termed as “The Silent Bomb!”
Compromising food containers by terrorists could endanger entire cities or even countries, with a delayed reaction and response.
A young start-up company has now completed successfully five (5) years of trials, testing of a GSM-GPRS-GPS Real Time, Live Tracking, Anywhere-Anytime, End-to-End Secure Supply Chain Logistics Management and a Security solution, with multiple sensors and integrating RFID technology.
The multiple sensors shall detect changes in Volumetric, Temperature, Light, O2, CO2, Gas, Vibration, Acceleration, Radiation etc.
The e-Seal deployed on the door of the container shall transmit a “heartbeat” pulse between each second and one minute. A breach in security shall initiate an instant SMS to multiple monitoring points.
The enhancing of security shall deliver an additional discount on the insurance premium based on the value of cargo.
The GSM-GPRS-GPS monitoring availability on Real Time shall give a 24x7 visibility and transparency to defined multiple observers.
In order to bring this concept into the market, the innovators need Euro 6 -10 million during 2007-2008.
