CMA CGM successfully loads its first smart container in India

The CMA CGM Group has announced that it has loaded its first TRAXENS-equipped container for an Indian customer recently. The container was loaded on the CMA CGM Tosca and is expected to be transported from Nhava Sheva to Marseille (France) on the Group’s MEDEX service.

The shipping group said that this first contract signed with UPL Ltd India demonstrates Indian exporters’ increasing needs for cargo visibility.

Prior to this, the CMA CGM Group had successfully executed the first loadings of TRAXENS-equipped containers from India for an international retailer. These containers are currently being transported to Southampton on the Group’s EPIC 1 service.

On the successful loadings, Ugo Vincent, managing director, CMA CGM Agencies India, said, “Our constant focus is on providing best-in-class, innovative solutions to our clients’ logistical needs. These include being able to monitor their valuable cargo at each step of the transportation process. TRAXENS by CMA CGM is one of the most innovative applications offered by CMA CGM to cater to these needs.”

The CMA CGM Group launched its innovative near-real-time alert system, TRAXENS by CMA CGM, in the month of June 2018 as part of its customer centricity strategy.

TRAXENS by CMA CGM is a connected box fixed on the container allowing to measure containers’ position, anywhere whether it is at sea or on land; the intensity of potential shocks; outside temperature variations – and soon humidity and temperature inside the container; doors opening and closing etc.
