SecureSystem U.S., Inc. announced a new partnership with Virginia-based national security consultants Cambridge Global Advisors (CGA) today, marking the beginning of a new chapter in the Company’s operations in the United States. SecureSystem, which offers a “smart container” shipping and logistics technology for government and commercial customers, said the new partnership will enable the Company to better serve the needs of federal agencies.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Cambridge Global and look forward to pursuing federal business together,” said SecureSystem U.S. CEO Tom Ziemba. “CGA’s incredible team brings unique expertise and capabilities with the Department of Defense, the Department of State, and the Department of Homeland Security. These are all key areas of focus for SecureSystem, and CGA’s input and assistance will enhance our ability to meet the needs of these agencies and the rest of our clients.”
SecureSystem will draw on the expertise of CGA to work more closely with US government agencies in securing and transporting valuable shipments. An estimated 20 million shipping containers transport $4 trillion of goods across the world every year, including mission-critical and valuable government cargo. SecureSystem offers a solution that enables advanced data collection and security monitoring for containers carrying high value or sensitive goods. The solution provides real-time monitoring anywhere on the globe of a container’s location, internal conditions and physical integrity. The industrial-grade technology, developed and tested by Airbus® Defense and Space, uses environmental sensors, physical security sensors, satellite and cellular communication as well as GPS positioning; and a patented cloud-based “Trust Center” security portal to transform containers into smart, interactive units, allowing comprehensive data analytics. Its mobile design allows for placing and removing the hardware on any standard container in a matter of seconds.
