LoJack SCI InTransit Protects Cargo throughout Global Supply Chain – From Point of Origin to Point of Destination, Across Land, Air and Sea
LoJack Supply Chain Integrity, developers of a first-of-its-kind, integrated solution that reduces and manages risk throughout the supply chain, took a major step forward by launching its next generation LoJack SCI InTransit solution. This breakthrough system delivers a global cargo protection solution that provides 24/7 visibility for shipments as they move through the international supply chain – from point of origin to point of destination, across land, air and sea. It is the only comprehensive system that enables businesses to control the various and complex aspects of cargo in-transit through a single user interface, while also providing complete monitoring support and recovery capabilities.
“This groundbreaking product clearly sets us apart from competitors in our industry,” said Robert Furtado, President and CEO, LoJack Supply Chain Integrity. “No other company has this combination of offerings that can protect and provide visibility of cargo across the entire supply chain, whether it is on land, in the air or at sea; and from theft and environmental conditions.”
Solving the Business Problem of Today’s Complex Supply Chain:In today’s global economy, products are frequently manufactured on one continent and shipped to another for consumption. This extended supply chain and transit operation includes multiple modes of transportation, crossing continents and countries, plus a complex customs process. Generally, the cargo travels in adverse conditions, unmonitored, is subject to delays, sensitive environmental conditions, possible tampering and theft.
The customizable LoJack SCI InTransit system delivers unmatched flexibility and control over shipments moving through this complex supply chain. The system can be customized to meet the specific needs of customers to protect goods across any combination of transportation modes. The solution’s tracking device can be embedded in the cargo and/or installed on the trailer or container door to detect and protect against intrusion.
LoJack SCI InTransit uses a combination of GPS, cellular GPS, DGPS and Radio Frequency (when appropriate) to ensure continuous tracking. Customers have the option to integrate satellite communications (SatComm) technology while at sea or on railways for coverage in remote locations.
LoJack SCI InTransit offers customers 24/7/365 visibility into the location and condition of their shipment through the entire chain of custody. The system also enables users to set up parameters and receive alerts in the event that negative or challenging conditions – such as too much humidity, tampering or an intrusion – take place, which enables them to make key decisions to preserve the integrity of the cargo. For recovery, LoJack SCI InTransit benefits from LoJack’s long-standing relationship with law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. and its own extensive multi-agency law enforcement database and recovery network.
This next generation solution will enhance a company’s participation in the Customs – Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), the voluntary government-business initiative designed to strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security, which helps organizations to expedite the movement of cargo through ports and customs.
