Cma Cgm Launches Container-Tracking Solution
Monday, 02 July 2018 02:15

The CMA CGM Group has begun the commercial rollout of a new container-tracking solution.


According to the French shipping line, the solution is called TRAXENS by CMA CGM and was developed by a French startup with the financial support of CMA CGM. It has already undergone various tests and is now available to all of CMA CGM’s customers.


“CMA CGM reaffirms its Customer Centricity strategy by offering this innovative solution,” said Mathieu Friedberg, senior vice president of commercial and agency network at CMA CGM. “With nearly 19 million containers carried in 2017, the generalization of smart containers in the group’s fleet will allow to collect and analyze a lot of information necessary to improve the service offered to customers and will help them optimize their supply chain.”


TRAXENS by CMA CGM consists of a connected box fixed to the container and can record parameters such as the container’s position, the intensity of potential shocks, outside temperature variations and the opening and closing of the doors. It will also soon be able to measure the humidity and temperature inside the container.

Through a near-real-time alert system and a user-friendly interface, customers can efficiently track their shipments and thus be more reactive at each step of the transport chain.


TRAXENS by CMA CGM is also available with a complete diagnostic service, which will include a project team following and supporting the customer in analyzing their data so that logistical difficulties can be identified and concrete solutions implemented to optimize costs and security, according to CMA CGM.

UPS has expanded its less-than-container-load ocean freight service with the addition of direct sailings in 130 trade lanes.

According to UPS, the new origins and destinations cover most of the globe and include ports in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, the US, the Caribbean and the Middle East.

Customers who do not have enough cargo to fill an entire shipping container can still access UPS’s network of capabilities and freight facilities, as well as the company’s portfolio of value-added and alternative services, including cargo insurance and financing solutions from UPS Capital, customs brokerage services, supplier management, sea-air service, UPS Preferred LCL and China-Europe rail service.

“This network expansion demonstrates our ongoing investments to continually build out our network so we can meet or exceed customer demands,” said Steve McMichael, vice president of global ocean freight services. “Shippers are looking for alternative service options to limit risk, increase security, and manage inventory more efficiently with reliable transit times. We provide end-to-end support to help our customers keep promises to their customers.”
