Based in Marseilles, France, Traxens hopes to transform the industrial supply chain by delivering the added-value data, analytics, and expertise that organizations need to acquire complete visibility into their assets anywhere in the world. Traxens continuously produces, collects, qualifies, enriches, and certifies such data. Its technology automatically detects transport modes, calculates mileage and computes carbon dioxide emissions with global high-precision geolocation tools. Supply chain stakeholders can create their own areas of interest and geofence them in order to more accurately predict arrival dates and times.
Traxens’ shock detention technology detects shocks on containers and assesses their severity through a ‘shock algorithm.’ Shippers are alerted to container openings during each cargo. Technology monitors cargo remotely, and measures environmental data such as temperature and humidity inside the asset that is being shipped.
Traxens’ technologies address the key challenges in the shipping industry faced by both asset owners and cargo owners. With the support of telematics, asset owners can control costs and develop more agile ways to solve business problems, while cargo owners can more easily keep track of their containers, and enhance their decision-making capabilities. In the reefer industry, Traxens offers a comprehensive solution, comprising the company’s Reefer Fleet Management and Reefer Door-to-door Monitoring cloud-based applications via the Traxens-Hub, which collects data from TraxensBox devices installed on containers. In the railroad industry, Traxens’ patented cargo-tracking IoT (Internet of Things) system provides comprehensive, precise and timely data about cargo by tracking railroad cars in transit. In cooperation with France’s SNCF Logistics, Traxens has developed the Digital Freight Train by turning conventional wagons into intelligent wagons that analyze data about geolocation, arrival notifications, consignment transport conditions and status monitoring, predictive maintenance and more. Traxens’ tools can accelerate customs clearance, reduce damage and demurrage costs, improve cash flow, and enable new, value-added services that increase shippers’ competitive advantages.
