Damco selects cargo tracking system
Damco, a global freight forwarder that is part of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, has selected the GlobalTrak system to increase visibility and ensure the safety and security of cargo moving for the U.S. Defense Department in the Middle East.
Damco is employing GlobalTrak to track and monitor shipments of Army & Air Force Exchange Service goods from their transshipment point. The cargoes arrive in Turkey and then travel cross-country to destinations in Iraq.
Damco places the GlobalTrak quick-mount asset monitoring unit on truck trailers crossing Turkey. The unit's sensors report location and cargo condition via two-way cellular and satellite communications to a secure, online portal.
The GlobalTrak system is designed and produced by System Planning Corp., of Arlington, Va.
