Jan 10, 2013 7:00 AM
Shippers, logisticians, customs agents, and supply chain professionals can now dedicate more time to action and less time gathering data with the introduction of Savi Mobile Tracking System 2.2.
This system from Savi Technology gives greater detail on real-time field conditions and events to quickly identify conditions that require an immediate response to a potential cargo theft, lost shipment, or supply chain delay.
SMTS 2.2 introduces new journey management features including several web services that automate the capture of information such as assets, tags, and journeys in the system. Users can more accurately define approved cargo corridors with the ability to resize a corridor fence using handles, create a corridor fence around a line or point on the map, and enter a specific street address.
Users can also monitor environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. Change in environmental condition is critical when transporting perishable goods or products that have a defined range for safe transport.
SMTS 2.2 increases the richness of information available through several new alerts and advanced search capabilities and criteria that allow users to quickly identify potential risks or issues that require a response. It automatically updates open screens with updates made in a different screen, reducing re-keying errors and administrative tasks. Information collected through SMTSís data collection system permits the business owner to make critical, cost-based decisions regarding route optimizations, driver habits, and several other areas to combine transportation logistic functions.
