IoT Shipment and Cargo Tracking Solutions

Reliable communications that supply you with accurate data about your fleet are key to the success of your enterprise. We work with our customers bringing them the best in telematics technology so they can increase operational efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint, and ensure compliance with current legislation.

When it comes to tracking shipments or cargo over land, sea and air, sensors can be attached to your vehicles, to your containers, and / or to individual parcels.

Simple sensors will provide the asset’s location, helping to ensure that delivery schedules are accurate. More complex sensors can measure vibration / motion and temperature, which can help safeguard against theft, and distance travelled / fuel consumed, which can help your business manage costs and demonstrate compliance with legislation monitoring the environmental impact of shipping.

Ground Control's wide choice of devices and airtime services means that we can pair you with the best solution for your needs - from global tracking devices to satellite phones, to portable WiFi hotspots.

However complex your requirements, the data needs to come back to your base of operations quickly and reliably, so it can be acted upon; and that’s where Ground Control comes in.

Our solutions offer hybrid cellular / satellite connectivity to provide the best balance of cost and reliability; as soon as the cellular network becomes spotty, the devices failover to satellite, which has pole to pole coverage.

In addition to tracking, satellite connectivity also facilitates two way communication between your drivers, pilots and helmsmen, so that they can keep fleet managers informed about their status, receive new instructions if they need to change their route, and better ensure their safety in remote locations.
