Real-time monitoring of perishable cargo during shipping can maximize product quality and safety, thanks to this mobile and Cloud platform.

Globally, the freight transport management industry is expanding rapidly and expected to reach US$41.5 billion by 2025, with Asia Pacific being the fastest growing market. 

Businesses in the regional industry need to meet increased customer expectations to offer improved real-time, en-route updates and data analysis. The availability of a real-time resource for monitoring in-transit shipment information such as temperature, location and other measurements should help maintain or improve the quality of perishable cargo reaching customers. 

Such a real-time resource is now a reality, in the form of a portal accessible via the Cloud. The new portal, named Oversight 2 and developed by global technology and engineering company Emerson, will help businesses in the region to effectively manage all shipments from start to finish. 

Oversight 2 also uses proprietary, state-of-the-art cloud processing to capture precise, in-transit measurements delivered exclusively by Emerson’s GO Real-Time Trackers. These trackers are currently available for use with 2G, 3G and 4G cellular connectivity. Emerson’s new interface for the online portal features a host of enhanced functionality, including improved response time, intuitive navigation and multi-language support, all combining to provide an overall user experience that is both powerful and easy to use.

An accompanying mobile application called Oversight Mobile provides ubiquitous access to the functions of the portal, and both products are available in multiple languages including English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, Portuguese, Turkish, and French.

Said Frank Landwehr, VP and general manager, Cargo Solutions, at Emerson: “Our customers expect simple and timely access to the real-time information which we provide to give visibility and insight into the status of their valuable cargo. Oversight 2’s intuitive design delivers robust automated reporting, real-time alert information and historical reports that give our customers the information they need to make important decisions about the status of their in-transit cargo.”
