With the unique VELUMplus, mobile goods such as trailers or containers can now be presented transparently in operational processes with an unprecedented cost efficiency. As standard, the extremely energy-efficient VELUMplus has a battery that can transmit a capacity of over 30,000 events and, depending on the configuration, can achieve a service life of many years. This at a fraction of the cost of GNSS/GSM trackers today.
With the unique ConnectedTrailer and the end device VELUMplus, mobile goods such as trailers or containers can be presented transparently in operational processes with unprecedented cost efficiency. This is possible because the VELUMplus works in the so-called 0G network. This is designed for narrowband communication in order to connect extremely energy-saving terminal devices to the Internet that could not previously be connected. Accordingly, it is suitable to transmit small messages, such as tracking data from trailers or swap bodies, every hour or more frequently during movement. In contrast to the mobile radio network, significantly fewer cells are required, since one cell can manage up to one million devices and the signals of the Low Power Wide Area based radio technology extend very far: In cities through houses and walls through about 3 to 5 km. In rural areas about 30 to 50 km. By the end of 2019, the 0G network will be available internationally in 60 countries - without roaming charges and has already achieved good or even very good coverage in many European countries.
The focus is on applications
These are typically applications for which
Digitalization changes logistics and supply chain management a lot when suitable tools are used to support relevant decisions. This applies in particular to the question of whether semi-trailers, trailers, swap bodies or containers should be equipped with an active tracking system. This is not about the use of tools per se, but always about the previous testing of the degree of maturity and cost-effectiveness of the solution used. Thus, the journey into the digitally supported logistics and supply chain world remains affordable and efficient for all stakeholders.
