Nexxiot, a trading technology specialist and global TradeTech pioneer, announced in an April 26 release that it is facilitating the conversion of Hapag-Lloyd's three mio TEU container fleet to digital technology using IoT technology and analytics. Hapag-Lloyd will thus become the world's first carrier to be able to monitor shipping containers worldwide and analyze their location, movement, and status in real-time.

Nexxiot's Globehopper Edge system powers the IoT technology. It transmits location-related data in real-time, as well as tracks container strikes, and can even connect to other sensors via Bluetooth. The data itself is processed using the latest algorithms and Big Data analytics. Each device is certified following the ATEX Product Directive, which allows the devices to be used in potentially explosive areas.

"This is the largest deployment of active hardware monitoring devices to date in the ocean and intermodal shipping space, with the potential to create a vastly more efficient and sustainable global supply chain," said Stefan Kalmund, CEO of Nexxiot. "The location, status, and associated processes of 'dry' containers on the high seas as well as during inland transportation are mostly untraceable today. TradeTech projects, such as those implemented by Hapag-Lloyd with Nexxiot as a system partner, change this paradigm."

Olaf Habert, Director of Container Applications at Hapag-Lloyd, comments: "Nexxiot as a system partner provides us with an important technological building block. This allows us to detect delays earlier, automatically inform the affected customers and initiate countermeasures quickly. We are firmly convinced that not only our customers benefit from the new technology, but that this new approach will revolutionize the entire container shipping industry."
