[Satellite TODAY 07-15-11] Machine-to-machine wireless asset tracking, sensing, and control solutions provider OnAsset Intelligence has entered into a partnership with Flemming Cargo Securement (FCS) to help transportation and logistics companies minimize supply chain risk, OnAsset announced July 14.
OnAsset will combine its technology with the FCS system to produce a turnkey solution. OnAsset’s Sentry technology senses temperature and other variable changes on assets transported by truck, plane, rail, or intermodal freight. The service aims to allow airlines and freight forwarders to track the whereabouts and environmental conditions of their cargo.
FCS will provide 24/7 monitoring services for the OnAsset tracking devices, and other services such as security evaluations, covert shadowing of cargo in high-theft areas, reverse logistics, and multi-phased recovery plans in the event of a theft.
“OnAsset’s technology has helped us identify and prevent dozens of heists, which have saved our clients millions of dollars this year alone. Given the unprecedented rise in cargo theft on our nation’s highways, any company that ships high-value goods should consider deploying a solution like ours, to enhance their visibility, and provide the capabilities needed to stop theft in their supply chain,” FCS CEO Ray Flemming said in a statement.
