P2P Container is a solution designed to help shipping companies keep track of their containers at a marginal cost and thereby gain a competitive advantage. It is based on low-cost modular devices with minimal maintenance requirements and different types of sensors to adapt to cargo and customers’ needs.
P2P Container Tracking supports the costeffective creation of a P2P network in which each device collects and shares information about itself and other known peers in a costeffective and extensible way. The data reported by the devices is received and consolidated centrally via LPWAN networks such as LoRAWAN or SigFox, while a web portal offers tracking of the devices on the customer side. The collected data is made available for easy integration into companies’ own systems, where they can then use it in their own internal processes.
