ESG and Container Monitoring – A Forward-Looking Combination for Sustainable Transport
Munich, January 2023
Sustainability is key in today’s world, and an efficient supply chain plays a key role in minimizing the environmental impact of transportation of goods. The concept of ESG emphasizes the importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance aspects in evaluating companies and their decisions.
One way to make the transportation of goods more sustainable is to use container monitoring solutions like SecureSystem. By continuously monitoring and tracking containers during transport, companies can further optimize their transportation routes. Among other things, this helps to reduce CO2 emissions and to improve the reliability of the supply chain.
Container monitoring helps companies to make their transport activities more sustainable and ESG compliant, thus contributing to the protection of the environment. By considering ESG requirements when planning transportation routes and using container monitoring solutions, companies can achieve their sustainability goals, increase supply chain efficiency, and reduce transportation costs.
More than 40 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 global visibility of a container’s location, internal condition, 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 portable design of the device allows the hardware to be attached to or removed from any standard container in a matter of seconds. The generated insights are delivered through a cloud-based data intelligence platform.
