To get the most out of collapsible containers, complete container visibility and intelligent insights are needed. SEACON is the container tracking beacon that comes standard with every COLLAPSECON leased. SEACON captures real-time data to optimise fleet management by identifying the entire fleet’s geographic location, the status of each COLLAPSECON in the expanded or collapsed state, idle time, route geo-fencing, and COS interactions.

The Challenge

A problem of transparency

Container tracking is not new, but they are only now starting to be tracked on mass due to volume and complexity. Capital expenditure, poorly configured devices, insufficient networks for global roaming, and short battery lifespans all limit their capability and benefits.

Shippers are demanding increased visibility to improve supply chains, reduce pilferage and increase the reliability of products on shelves.

Shipping lines want to track containers, but considering the global fleet’s ever-increasing size, costs and complexity slows adoption.

IoT data validates assumptions with real-time information. Decisions and forecasting are more informed, driving improved operations.

SEACON provides visibility

Spectainer is not an IoT company. We don’t make devices or software. But we do recognise the importance of data and analytics when it comes to operating a container fleet at scale. SEACON introduces an unsurpassed level of accountability. Data is essential in understanding and validating fleet management to optimise future strategy. Our customers benefit from accurate real-time data to drive future commercial, security, operations and logistics decisions.

Better Functionality

SEACON enhances the functionality of COLLAPSECON by verifying the state of the container (single or combined), allowing operators to determine where and when to collapse and combine.

Affordable Operation

SEACON comes standard with every COLLAPSECON and COS. They are built into the lease price, so you don’t need to worry about additional fees and charges to manage your fleet.

Complete Transparency

SEACON provides complete supply-chain visibility and data analysis through the online platform. Log on anywhere and anytime to view and interrogate your COLLAPSECON fleet in action.

Long Battery Life

Every SEACON device is solar-enabled and comes with a 10-year battery lifespan, meaning they can remain in operation much longer than other container tracking systems.

Enhanced Protection

SEACON features an anti-tamper sensor that monitors whether the container has been breached during transit ensuring the container, and its contents, are always protected.

Full Integration

SEACON devices communicate with the COS to monitor and track if COLLAPSECONs are in the collapsed or expanded state and in what combination contained within each COLLAPSECON Bundle.

Why is SEACON different?

SEACON comes standard on every COLLAPSECON. The device itself is the Globehopper Crossmodal 3.0, a zero-maintenance state-of-the-art real-time monitoring device with 5G capability developed by Nexxiot.


The Globehopper’s solar-powered independent communication solution has algorithms for operations and has sensors fully integrated. Coupled with real-time position, ETA and geofencing capabilities, it provides compelling new business logic for fleet management optimisation.
