Now onwards, containers moving from Shanghai to Savannah will be E-tagged to track their movement for safe and efficient delivery. E-tags of door bell size will be embedded in the 20-foot container equivalent units (TEU). The research team of Shanghai International Port (Group) Co have developed these E-tags. The E-tags cost less than ten US dollars and can last for 10 years.
E-tags are capable of
- monitoring loading port and unloading port with date and timings
- updating the information on shipping company’s website in real time
- giving alarm in the website if the container is illegally opened en route
- eliminating smuggling activities in containers
