On the rise: Deals made in recent months suggest interest in smart container technology is gaining momentum.
A spate of recent deals suggest smart containers could finally be gaining traction within the industry
SMART container technology has been in existence for a few years now but it has yet to gain the level of industry penetration that many had expected, other than in a few specialist areas with high value or fragile cargo.
The reasons for the low take-up are many, but primarily revolve around the initial cost of the equipment, the cost of maintenance, the cost of data usage and how to pass on these costs to customers.
However, over the past few months, there have been a few deals announced that suggest interest in the technology is finally gaining momentum.
