  4. 4. New Silk Road Data • 11,000 kilometers en route from the Chinese megacity of Chongqing to Duisburg, Germany. • In 2012 this rail route transported over 12,000 Twenty foot equivalents of cargo. • This figure is set to double in less than 10 years. • Two most popular routes are the Trans- Siberian through Russia or Western China through Kazakhstan. • Developing routes through Turkmenistan and Iran will transport goods to the Emirates with a total route of just over 3300 kilometers Half the distance of air freight from Shanghai to Dubai.
  5. 5. New Silk Road Data (continued) • Goods transported from China are electronics, machinery, appliances, Office and Telecommunications equipment, Textiles and Shoes. • Goods transported from Europe to China include: Cars, Car parts, Luxury European made goods and Wine. • 10 days instead of 35-40 days transit time. • Tighter control of European supply chains. • Reduction of over 30% in transportation costs. • Expansion for food supply routes into the Emirates and the rest of the Middle East. • Creating a Middle East hub for goods shipments to Africa.
  6. 6. Issues around Silk Road Visibility • Vast Transportation Network with several players. • Remote geographies in China, Russia and Kazakhstan and emerging Trade routes that are being built. • Multiple border crossings that can impact transit times and make the supply chain unreliable. • Other than block trains with non stop routes containers are moved from one train system to another without data on dwell times based on train schedules.
  7. 7. Visibility and M2M Solutions • Common Technology platform to connect the supply chain in a low cost way. • Additional Satellite capabilities for real time alerts of high value cargo. • Green Lane programs with e-Seals that provide proof of cargo integrity in transit and shorten border wait times, calculate container dwell times and provide alerts through data sharing. • Terminal visibility where you can view the trans-loading of containers moving from rail operator to rail operator in real time. • Ecosystems of technology where all logistics and supply chain processes and assets are connected.

  12. 12. The GT e-Seal is installed through the container door’s lock loops. The container door lever can’t be accessed without removing the e- Seal. The single-use e-Seal’s shaft must be cut to be removed. The multi-use e-Seal can be removed by removing its cap from the shaft and drawing it through the lock loops.
  13. 13. GT I- Networks report the arrival and unique ID of the eSeal/container in real time as the container enters the terminal rail yard
  14. 14. The e-Seal’s open / closed status is incorporated into the data that is sent by the container’s GT Communications Unit’s to the cloud where it is recorded and analyzed for appropriate action.

  16. 16. Infrastructure Communications Units fixed “Strategically” throughout the Yard or Terminal to form a real-time Communications Network with blanket-coverage. Globe Tracker® I-Network
  17. 17. GT Infrastructure Communications Units are strategically placed throughout the terminal or yard on: • Light Poles • Cranes • Gates • Spreaders • … everywhere Blanket-Coverage
  18. 18. GT Communications Unit Data is sent to the container owner’s Private Database through the terminals GT I–Network.
  19. 19. GT Communications Units send real-time “events” to the asset owners: • Reefer alarms • Temperature parameter breaches • Door status changes • and more …
  20. 20. GT I-Networks also manage the flow of chassis into a terminal in real time. This provides fast and efficient unloading of containers from rail to road
  21. 21. The container owner shares the GT Communications Unit Data with the Terminal Operator through the Globe Tracker Trade Data Exchange Network (TDEN) for Terminal Services. The GT I-Network sends terminal operational data directly to the Terminal Operator.
  22. 22. • When containers arrive, depart and move • Precise container location • When container doors open and Close • Is the Reefer Powered On or Not • PTI Status • Terminal Wireless Sensor Data The Terminal Operator knows: Globe Tracker Open Standard Wireless Communications Protocol
  23. 23. Asset Owner and Terminal Operator can securely and selectively Share Data with each other through the Globe Tracker® Trade Data Exchange Network.
  24. 24. History • Yard Management User Interface • Real-Time Yard Asset Tracking Globe Tracker® Yard Management Analytics • Location • Plugged-In • Staging • Repair • Arrival • Departure • Movement • Operations data
  25. 25. Status • Yard Management User Interface • Real-Time Yard Asset Tracking Globe Tracker® Yard Management Analytics • Movement • Alarms • Geo-Fence • Yard Sensors
  26. 26. Globe Tracker® I-Network Offers the Terminal Operator: • A platform for data communication with their customers driving remote services of their assets. • Operational visibility of all assets in a terminal. • Terminal automation applications and efficiencies through wireless sensor data.

  28. 28. For reliable blanket coverage, GT Infrastructure Communications Units are installed strategically above and below decks.
  29. 29. GT Communications Units in Containers, Dry and Reefer, communicate wirelessly with the GT I-Network. Sub GHz works well in this challenging RF environment.
  30. 30. GT Communications Units in Containers recognize they are Onboard and allow the GT I-Network to take over the reporting of their position
  31. 31. Real-time alarms are sent to the asset owners server through the GT I-Network. The asset owner shares the data with the ship’s crew through the GT TDEN
  32. 32. Ship Crew notified • Takes appropriate action • Cargo Saved
  33. 33. Offers the vessel operator: • A platform for data communication with their customers allowing for remote servicing of their assets • Vessel automation applications and efficiencies through wireless sensor data GT I-Network
  34. 34. GT Smart Reefer System
  35. 35. Globe Tracker’s partner Reefer Control Unit Interface is installed in the Reefer Control Unit and connected to the Reefer Control Unit’s interface port and the GT Communications Unit.
  36. 36. Globe Tracker Cargo Trackers are integrated into Smart Pallets and communication with a container’s GT Communications Unit when inside the cargo area. The GT Communications Unit reports when the Smart Pallet arrives in the cargo area and when leaves.
  37. 37. Globe Tracker Cargo Trackers are integrated into packages and communication with a container’s GT Communications Unit when inside the cargo area. The GT Communications Unit reports when the package arrives in the cargo area and when leaves. This feature can also allow for package level sensors such as temperature and humidity.
  38. 38. A number of independent Sub GHz Wireless Sensors can be installed in the container’s cargo area to monitor sound, light, temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, gases, etc. Data from these sensors is incorporated into the data that is sent by the container’s GT Communications Unit’s to the cloud where it is recorded and analyzed for appropriate action.
  39. 39. The GT Rail Car System supports GT’s door eSeal which continuously monitors the container’s door open / closed status and reports it to the container’s GT Communications Unit. The GT Communications Unit can be programmed to “push” a cloud communications cycle when the eSeal status changes.
  40. 40. The GT eSeal is installed through the container door’s lock loops. The container door lever can’t be accessed without removing the eSeal. The single-use eSeal’s shaft must be cut to be removed. The multi-use eSeal can be removed by removing its cap from the shaft and drawing it through the lock loops.
  41. 41. The eSeal’s open / closed status is incorporated into the data that is sent by the container’s GT Communications Unit’s to the cloud where it is recorded and analyzed for appropriate action.
  42. 42. Conclusions • Common Technology platform adoption across the new silk road will benefit the entire supply chain and fuel its growth. • Trade data sharing with supply chain partners and logistics companies will allow for streamlined and efficient supply chains and allow for the explosive growth that is predicted. • Green Lane programs assist in proof of cargo integrity, minimize theft and pilferage, reduce wait times for cargo in transit and provide easier collections of customs revenues. • Increased visibility through tracking and monitoring allows all asset owners to increase logistics equipment utilization and create revenue opportunities for value added services.
