Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH (BPG), one of the leading distributers of high-performance plastics, uses SecSys CARGO to optimize their supply chain between Germany and Africa.

Containers are containing plastic granulate on pallets for a customer in Durban. Loaded at Convent GmbH in Emmerich, containers are intermodally transported to Rotterdam, from where these will be shipped to Durban.

By this increased level of transparency, BPG could mitigate delays and monitor the temperature and humidity inside the container in real-time, as well as document the integrity of the container (e.g., via the door status). As an additional service, BPG’s customers will have access to the datapoints through SecureSystem’s data platform and could follow shipments globally, digital and in real-time.

We are thrilled to welcome BPG and to accompany the upcoming projects!

About SecureSystem
More than 20 million shipping containers transport $4 trillion of goods across the world every year.
The SecureSystem – “In-transit visibility solution” enables advanced supply chain data collection and security monitoring for containers carrying high value or sensitive goods.

The system also provides real-time world-wide awareness of a container’s location, internal conditions, and physical integrity. The industrial-grade IoT technology, developed and tested by Airbus® Defense and Space, uses environmental sensors, physical security sensors, satellite, and cellular communication as well as GPS positioning to transform containers into smart, interactive units, allowing comprehensive data analytics. The device’s mobile design allows for installing or removing the hardware on any standard container in a matter of seconds. The generated insights are delivered through a cloud-based data intelligence platform. Press Contact: Heinz Klein,, +49 174 20 30 489
