An in-transit tracking system plays a critical role in ensuring the visibility and security of goods as they move from origin to destination. However, not all tracking systems are created equal. The right system should not only fulfill basic tracking needs but also provide comprehensive solutions that cater to specific business requirements.

Below are key features to look for and purchasing considerations to keep in mind when selecting an in-transit tracking system.

Choosing the right in-transit tracking system involves a comprehensive evaluation that goes beyond the immediate allure of technology and feature sets.

Key Features of an Effective In-Transit Tracking System

When evaluating in-transit tracking systems, look for the following key features as a minimum:

  1. Real-Time Tracking and Visibility - Ability to track shipments in real-time, offering visibility into the location and status of goods as they move across the supply chain.
  2. Seamless Indoor and Outdoor Tracking - Integration of technologies that support both indoor and outdoor tracking, ensuring no gaps in monitoring as assets move from warehouses to transportation modes and final delivery points.
  3. Management by exception - With thousands of data points, you need to be able to find the issues and solve them first.
  4. Interoperable Devices - Compatibility with a range of devices and technologies, enabling a flexible and scalable system that can grow with your business needs.
  5. Comprehensive Environmental Monitoring - Features that monitor the condition of goods, including temperature, humidity, and shock detection, ensuring product integrity throughout the transit.
  6. Advanced Analytics and Reporting - Insights into logistics operations, helping businesses optimize routes, reduce delays, and improve overall efficiency.
  7. Ease of Integration - The ability to easily integrate with existing systems and infrastructures, minimizing disruptions and leveraging previous investments.
  8. Robust Security Measures - End-to-end encryption and security protocols to safeguard data integrity and privacy.

Purchasing Considerations

When evaluating in-transit tracking systems, consider the following factors:

  1. Compatibility - Ensure the system is compatible with your existing logistics infrastructure and can be easily integrated.
  2. Scalability - Consider whether the system can scale up to accommodate your business growth without significant additional investments.
  3. Cost-effectiveness - Evaluate the total cost of ownership, including installation, maintenance, and any subscription services.
  4. User Experience - A user-friendly interface for both the management team and field operatives is crucial for the successful adoption of the system.
  5. Customer Support - Look for providers offering robust support and training to ensure smooth deployment and ongoing operation.

How System Loco Stands Out

System Loco emerges as a standout choice in the realm of in-transit tracking systems, thanks to its unique selling propositions (USPs) and its compatibility with existing systems. Here's why System Loco is an excellent choice:

  1. Seamless Tracking Across Environments: System Loco excels in offering seamless indoor and outdoor tracking capabilities. Its devices are interoperable, including the use of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) to Mobile Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) gateways, ensuring comprehensive coverage throughout the transit process.
  2. Easy Integration: System Loco is designed for easy integration with existing systems. Businesses that have already invested in a tracking or logistics system will find System Loco an additive solution that enhances their current setup without the need for extensive overhaul.
  3. Interoperable Devices: All System Loco devices are designed to work together, providing a cohesive and scalable solution that can adapt to any logistical challenge, ensuring that businesses are well-equipped for both current and future tracking needs.
  4. Robust and Reliable: With advanced security measures and durable devices, System Loco ensures that data is not only accurate but also secure from end to end.
