Container & load carrier tacking

Real-time location tracking

SMART container fleet management: real-time tracking of load carriers for optimized container logistics

INTRANAV supports container and load carrier tracking with an integrative, independent RTLS IoT suite to enable seamless supply chain visibility across the container fleet and the intralogistic container cycle of small and large load carriers, euro pallets and shipments in real-time. Providing global real-time information through GPS or e.g. Ultra-Wideband (indoor) technology and ERP/WMS API interfaces, the entire container and load carrier flow can be tracked and efficiently controlled. The INTRANAV.RTLS TAGs digitize via Digital Twin and the INTRANAV.IO RTLS platform visualizes the transport flow including live transmission of important information such as geolocation, standing times and makes additional metadata such as customer, article, picking slips retrievable (paperless supply chain), which are necessary for quality control purposes. INTRANAV SMART sensors also monitor temperature, humidity and acceleration/shock of transported goods.

Container automation loops, automatic process triggers, and (e)Kanban material replenishment simplify and accelerate your intralogistics processes. With real-time analytics and clear dashboard reports, you can investigate bottlenecks, utilization or, for example, delivery routes.
The real-time data provides companies within the supply chain with important data on the status of shipments, enabling forwarders to efficiently plan shipping operations, identify shortages and take countermeasures to optimize logistics cycles both immediately and in the long term.

Challenges
in container management & load carrier logistics

  • Location, content and status are unknown, cause high search times

    Goal

    Transparent real-time display & search function of the current location of the containers as well as a unique container identification and overview of the stocks as Digital Twin. Meta data is assigned to the container and its contents.

  • Deviations from transport guide values cause long rework times

    Goal

    Warning messages and reminders are intended to draw attention to transport-related process guideline deviations, such as temperature overshoot or undershoot and breakage of the cargo.

  • No sufficient data basis for process optimization

    Goal

    Real-time reports enrich existing analyses and enable new logistics insights as a data-based decision-making basis.

Simplification of container handling
through industrial RTLS automation

  • 1

    Elimieren des Barcode Scannings via Auto-ID Solution

    By means of virtual zones (geofences), manual booking steps, such as incoming and outgoing goods or intermediate storage, are no longer necessary; these are now automatically booked in the system (AutoID).

  • 2

    Loading of unmixed packages onto pallets without manual scanning (bulk process)

    Individual packages are automatically recorded in the ERP system as a package group.

  • 3

    Automatisches Auslösen von Prozessen

    Automatic triggering of processes.
