Maersk: Innovating the way we ship cargo with Remote Container Management
OREANDA-NEWS. At Maersk Line, we are at the forefront of finding new ways to enhance cargo care. One of our new developments that takes the transportation of perishable goods to the digital era is Remote Container Management (RCM).
RCM is a game-changer in the world of refrigerated transportation. RCM uses a box known as the Remote Container Device (RCD), two antennas and mobile signal to turn a regular refrigerated container into a digitally connected device.
RCM has been in the works for five years and finally went live in 2015. Now fully implemented in 270,000 Maersk Line refrigerated containers, RCM lets us track data such as the location, power status, temperature, humidity and ventilation settings in the container even while at sea.
"We have listened to our customers and recognised the need to upgrade our reefer fleet. Our job is to enable you to deliver your promises in the exact condition they were intended to. When we pair our expertise and customer relationships with modern innovation, we can really make a difference in your supply chain." Shereen Zarkani, Global Head of Reefer Management Maersk Line
By ensuring and monitoring the ideal environment of our shipper's products, RCM lets our customers experience true peace of mind when they ship with Maersk Line.
