Worldwide connectivity helps keep the global food chain intact. According to The Economist, four-fifths of the planet’s 8 billion mouths are fed in part by imports. Fleets in the air, on the sea and on the road connect tens of millions of farms to hundreds of millions of shops and kitchens.
Emerson’s Transportation Solutions business has a proven reputation for tracking this freight, regardless of where it is within its journey. The world’s leading shipping companies, truck lines and refrigerated container manufacturers count on these refrigeration products and monitoring solutions. Building upon the smart communications it provides, Emerson’s Transportation Solutions business now supports Digital Container Shipping Association’s (“DCSA”) new internet of things (“IoT”) connectivity standards for shipping containers. DCSA is a nonprofit group founded by major ocean carriers to digitize and standardize the container shipping industry.
These recommendations focus on ensuring interoperability within the industry on the standardized methods for communications of IoT devices on container to IoT gateways at sea and on land. These universally adaptable standards align internal radio communication protocols for IoT gateways, addressing the network connectivity requirements for reefer containers, dry containers, and the RFID registration of these containers.
With these recommendations in place, carriers and supply chain participants will be one step closer to providing customers with an uninterrupted flow of relevant information regarding the whereabouts of containers and the status of their contents at any point along their journey.
