MCI offers “one-stop-shop” reefer monitoring

Maersk Container Industry (MCI) announced its Sekstant reefer digitalisation service 12 months ago. The company is now in the last stages of finalising the specific services it will offer in close cooperation with its customers. Field trials are scheduled for Q4 2019 and production will start in Q1 2020.


The Sekstant gateway will be able to support 2G, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity, giving customers options as 3G networks are shut down. All the data streams will be kept fully separate and completely independent from the respective container lines.


MCI is sticking with its promise to offer a “basic” package of services starting at 99 cents per container per month (US$) that includes GPS location and temperature readings and alarms. That can be expanded with options that include G-shock recording, remote ITI (Intelligent Trip Inspection) reporting - replacing manually activated PTIs and controlled atmosphere (CA) monitoring as required. Sekstant will also have options to support sending information to regulatory agencies electronically for cold chain compliance as these are developed.


WorldCargo News has noted previously that shippers moving thousands of reefer containers a year are sceptical about the value of remotely monitoring every reefer container, and would prefer their shipping line partners to notify them only when there is an issue with a particular container. MCI notes that with Sekstant “you don’t need to keep an eye on all reefers - based on your requirements the system will notify you only when needed so you can focus on growing your business.”
