Smart containers on the way

Japanese container shipping company ONE has engaged Sony to work on a ‘smart container’ solution that can be implemented across their entire fleet. Sony Network Communications Europe, ONE’s technology provider, will provide innovative solutions that offer benefits to both shipping company and shippers. ONE aims to gain better insight into containers to make faster and more proactive decisions, which will lead to more efficient container transport. Customers will benefit from live updates throughout the vessel’s journey, and real-time availability of reliable shipping data will lead to easier and more transparent communication with other relevant stakeholders. Although the deadline is not yet known, the two companies are excited to shape the future of container shipping together.
