SecureSystem® Brings Patented Smart Shipping Container Technology to North America

SecureSystem GmbH, the German provider of smart shipping container solutions, today announced the launch of its U.S. subsidiary, SecureSystem U.S., Inc.

This step accelerates SecureSystem’s ability to deliver its patented industrial Internet-of- Things technology that transforms standard shipping containers into “smart containers,” saving time, increasing profitability, and enhancing security.

An estimated 20 million shipping containers transport $4 trillion of goods across the world every year, accounting for 90% of global trade. Studies show that a single shipping transaction involves an average of 28 different entities including ports, forwarders, carriers and customs agencies. SecureSystem makes sure that containers are tracked, secured, and functioning properly as they move through this complex ecosystem.

The industrial-grade technology, developed and tested by Airbus® Defense and Space, uses environmental sensors, physical security sensors, satellite and cellular communication, GPS positioning, and a cloud-based “Trust Center” security portal to transform containers into connected, interactive units, allowing comprehensive data analytics.

In addition to real-time monitoring of a container’s location, internal conditions, and physical integrity anywhere around the world, SecureSystem’s technology features patented personalized access controls so each container remains sealed until the shipper authorizes the opening of each container. The data generated for each container can also provide customs agencies an additional tool to identify safe containers that qualify for expedited clearance.

Frank Fronzeck, CEO of SecureSystem GmbH, said, “This is an important and exciting step in increasing customer access to our solutions in key markets around the world. With our new U.S. operations, we can work closely with U.S. flag shippers, manufacturers, logistics facilitators, and the U.S. government to help them meet and exceed their secure shipping goals.”

“We are also thrilled to have Tom Ziemba join our team as CEO of SecureSystem U.S.,” Mr. Fronzeck added. “Tom’s decades of experience in technology and government sectors uniquely position him to lead our operations in North America.”

SecureSystem’s industrial-grade units easily attach to container doors in seconds and don’t require any mechanical installation or retrofitting of the container, making it possible for entire fleets of containers to become “smart containers” overnight. These units contain a suite of sensors and communications technology that keep the container in real-time communication with the Trust Center throughout its transport.

SecureSystem U.S., Inc. is a subsidiary of SecureSystem GmbH, headquartered in Germany and with offices in Japan and Brazil. SecureSystem U.S. is headquartered in Arlington, VA. For more information, visit
