How Smart Pallet and Container Tracking Works

The Orion Data Network is Smarter Technologies’ award-winning, low-power, long-range digital data network consisting of specially designed gateways and tags. 

For truly comprehensive coverage, we have designed three types of gateways and three types of tags to deliver total coverage, visibility and control.

  • Ethernet gateway interfaces with your existing connection
  • Mobile gateway runs directly over the Orion Data Network 
  • Independent satellite tracks your assets in remote locations

The system monitors and tracks your pallets and containers, which can be tagged separately for comprehensive coverage. Your assets are safe at every stage of their journey as the gateways listen, and the low-cost active low-power radio tags report the data through to your customised, cloud-based dashboard. This platform can be accessed 24/7 from any connected device. Alerts and alarms on the status of your assets can also be programmed to arrive instantaneously on any connected device.

Container & Pallet Tracking Use Cases

Monitor, Track, Recover

Smart container and pallet tracking solutions give you real-time, end-to-end asset visibility and data to monitor, track and recover your assets throughout the supply chain. This protects your assets, your profits and your reputation. For example, you can instantly locate assets that have been stored in the wrong place, taken to the wrong location or stolen from your supply chain. 

Geofencing capabilities allow you to get instant alerts to any connected device if your cargo moves outside of predefined geographical locations. In case of a stolen or missing container or pallet, Orion scanners in beacon mode can pinpoint the exact location of the missing asset. You can then recover your assets and the goods they contain as well as increase the chance of securing an arrest and conviction.

Tracking Products and Cargo

Attaching a low-power radio tag and IoT-enabled sensors to your containers and pallets gives you greater visibility of the products you are carrying and the location in the supply chain. With our smart tracking solutions, you can use real-time data to check that the right product is reaching your production lines in the right quantity and meeting quality assurance guidelines, thus saving money on waste and product recalls.

In addition, our solutions allow you to take control of your stock by automating repurchasing schedules and building more efficient working relationships with your third party suppliers.

Condition Monitoring

Along with location data, the system can monitor a wide range of container and pallet conditions, depending on what is most important to you and your business. The tags and IoT enabled sensors relay pre-defined data according to your needs. This data can include time, temperature, tamper, speed, latitude, longitude, battery information, shock reports and more. By monitoring these environmental factors, you can assess the potential impact on perishable goods in transit to reduce waste, maintain product quality and integrity and enhance the customer experience.
