CHEP to begin trial of new tracking solution
CHEP developed its new energy harvesting tracking solution in partnership with OnAsset Intelligence Inc.
June 24, 2014
CHEP Aerospace Solutions will begin field trial of energy-harvesting tracking solution for containers. This development complements CHEP’s full service ULD management and has the potential to simplify and enrich the information flows that track cargo as it moves through the aviation supply chain. Customers will be able to use CHEP’s ULDs as a proxy to track the movement of their shipment, while ensuring asset control and damage reduction.
CHEP developed its new tracking solution in partnership with OnAsset Intelligence Inc. The solution incorporates OnAsset’s SENTRY FlightSafe real-time data collection and GPS tracking technology. The tracking device installed on each ULD is connected to a solar panel and a customised power converter that harvests energy from sunlight and charges the on-board batteries.
