SEACON at-sea container tracking beacons are a cost-effective solution to provide complete container visibility and intelligent insights.


A Problem of Transparency

Container tracking is not new, but they are generally not tracked on mass due to poorly configured devices and networks for global roaming, and batteries often have short lifespans (compared to the container's life). And it’s expensive.

Shippers are demanding increased visibility to improve supply chains to reduce pilferage and loss while increasing the reliability of their products on shelves.

Shipping lines want to track their container fleets, but considering the global fleet's ever-increasing size (approximately 38 Mil units), monitoring the fleet's costs and complexity prohibit widespread adoption.

Customs and Border Protection agencies generally inspect only 5%-6% of all containers moving through ports, leaving the supply chain vulnerable to illicit cargo and theft. It’s like finding a needle in a haystack.

How SEACONs Address Supply Chain Visibility

SEACONS introduce an unsurpassed level of accountability in supply chain management by establishing a digital chain of responsibility.

What makes SEACON different

Spectainer have partnered with Nexxiot to provide as standard on every COLLAPSECON, the Nexxiot Globehopper Crossmodal 3.0, a zero-maintenance state of the art real time monitoring device with 5G capability.

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