24 hours a day & 365 days a year Ocean Freight transparency
The new DB SCHENKERsmartbox service monitors global freight transports in a more convenient and innovative way. You can now choose from multiple options in the DB SCHENKERsmartbox family based on your needs.
DB SCHENKERsmartbox premium
uses GPS coordinates to let you monitor your consignments on the internet in real time. Parameters such as temperature, humidity, G-force, movement, vibration and inclination are checked constantly. The technology monitors the route across modes of transportation using geofencing, a telematics solution in which a container is only permitted to move within an area that has been defined in advance. The device reports any attempt to open the container. Parameters can be custom-configured on the internet. The new Advanced Air & Ocean Tracking service also lets you track each unit individually in real time on the internet.
DB SCHENKERsmartbox light
makes it possible to document temperature, humidity, G-force, light, vibration and inclination during the transport. You can use the software to define your own thresholds for each parameter. Any values that exceed the thresholds are documented.
DB SCHENKERsmartbox easy 1 and easy 2
measures temperature (DB SCHENKERsmartbox easy 1) or temperature and humidity (DB SCHENKERsmartbox easy 2) during the transport. The saved values can be exported easily via USB after the consignment arrives. The exact time each measurement was taken is recorded. A chart shows the temperature measurements and any deviations from the temperature range defined in advance.
DB SCHENKERsmartbox easypharma
is a certified solution designed for the pharma industry and for medical transports. It measures and stores temperature and humidity readings collected during transport. The stored data can be read easily with a USB connection. The expanded memory allows up to 32,000 measurements which can be provided to the customer via the eServices on the DB Schenker homepage.
DB SCHENKERsmartbox logistics
enables monitoring of temperature and humidity levels in standard or cold storage warehouses. The device transfers the data to a computer in real time, where it is stored in a database. The advantages of the system include the precise accuracy of the measurements and the wireless transfer of data. If the temperature or humidity thresholds, which can be configured individually, are exceeded, an alarm is automatically triggered, enabling further steps to be taken.
