Ushering in a New Era of Dry Container Shipping

Container shipping is changing, as new technologies are opening up global supply chains like never before. Soon, shipping lines will wonder how they operated without having complete end-to-end visibility of their assets. Through IoT technology, shipping lines will not only know the location of every asset in their arsenal, but they can also monitor specific parameters including temperature, humidity and even the opening or closing of container doors.

Recently, we hosted a webinar to dive deep into where the dry container shipping industry is today, and where it’s headed soon. Led by ORBCOMM’s VP of Business Development for Container and Port Solutions Al Tama, the webinar “The Smart Dry Container is Here” discusses the modern face of container shipping in its current state and what shipping lines can expect to receive by adopting dry container telematics within their fleet.

Al is an industry expert on this subject, with over two decades of experience in supplying shipping lines and other maritime stakeholders with vital solutions. He has seen first-hand the industry gaps in visibility, transparency and data interoperability, and also knows where the industry is heading with innovative technology at the helm.
