Perishable Goods Delivered Without Peril

- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
Portable, wirelessly-enabled shipment monitoring solution from Locus Traxx powered by the KORE Global M2M Network. The OverSight™ system from Locus Traxx is a wireless system that is connected via the KORE network ensuring safety and security by making shipments selfreporting. By blending sophisticated SmartTraxx™ telematics with innovative, SmartTag™ wireless sensors, Allen Lund continuously monitors and instantly receives data on shipment temperature, door security and location from shipments on the road to computers or Smartphones. The wireless sensors detect and continuously report information including shipment temperature, door status (open, closed, locked), and other conditions and when an issue or exception event is detected, Intelligent Alert text and email messages are sent automatically to Allen Lund so they can make real-time decisions and take necessary steps to ensure the safe delivery of the products on the truck. These Intelligent Alerts are delivered via the KORE network anytime an event occurs that violates a rule — saving time and money while ensuring the safe delivery of the shipments.
