Semi-trailers are one of the key means to ship larger cargo, and every business owner wants to make sure it is well-monitored and protected. Our asset tracking solution is just the right choice for it.
Road transportation is still one of the most popular modes of goods transportation, as it offers financial advantages over other forms of transportation. Semi-trailer logistics, precisely, is preferred for shipping a variety of cargo. Since the e-commerce business expands, the need for a sophisticated distribution network amplifies.
Another factor influencing the development of the market is the growth of the end-use industries, like a cold chain. The growing economy in the advanced countries allows people to spend more money on pharmaceutical products, poultry, fresh flowers, fish, dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Therefore, it is no surprise that efficient logistics is indistinguishable from delivering services of high quality.
Business owners, however, have to deal with some problems related to semi-trailer logistics. From time to time, there are reports surfacing on the media about loaded trailers getting emptied by thieves which causes hefty financial damages. Also, there are cases when the shipped cargo is damaged due to improper temperature monitoring. Over the last years, TT Club, and TAPA EMEA identified a significant increase in criminals targeting cargo at rest. Whether it be at unsecured parking lots or container yards near port facilities, delays indirectly made cargo more vulnerable to tampering by thieves and smugglers. These cargo crime trends are juxtaposed with record-breaking cargo transiting through ports, driving record-breaking port congestion and idle times.
