2016 Winner Profile

Maersk Line A/S

Project Description:
Container shipping company Maesrk Line launched its Remote Container Management (RCM) system, which enables real-time updates such as location information, temperature readings, power status, alarms and data logs from its reefers. Using algorithms and AT&T- and Ericsson-developed IoT technology, the system identifies and flags abnormal reefer performance, allowing the company to address abnormalities and potential damage to cargo. As a result, the company has eliminated more than 225,000 pre-trip inspections of empty export reefers, which reduced CO2 emissions by 970 metric tonnes. In addition, the installation of tracking technology even helped Maesrk Line track down a stolen container of hazelnuts in Central Italy.
