Globe Tracker lands Samskip

Following announcements that Dole Food Company and then Hapag-Lloyd have signed up for its reefer monitoring system, Globe Tracker has now announced a contract with the shipping line and intermodal services provider Samskip.


Samskip will install Globe Tracker hardware on its reefers, and use the company’s ’s GT Sense platform to monitor the containers, “with two-way communication to Samskip reefer containers across the global supply chain,” Globe Tracker added. This means Samskip can monitor and adjust reefer container settings remotely.


"Samskip is an innovative company and we are very pleased with their decision to deploy our technology on their reefers," said Don Miller, VP of Sales and Marketing at Globe Tracker.


"We have been evaluating the Globe Tracker solution for some time and we are very happy with their technology, level of innovation and customer focus," says Danny De Koning, Technical Manager at Samskip.


Maersk Line led the way installing a monitoring system across its reefer fleet, but other carriers were slow to follow suit. Several have been engaged in pilot and proof of concept trials, and are now committing to installing a system. The third announcement in three weeks, says Globe Tracker, highlights “a shift in the market that is embracing innovation and high levels of customer focused solutions”.


It is not known how many of Samksip’s total fleet of 12,000 containers are reefer boxes.
