SST seeks to improve the visibility and security of containerized cargo with proven and emerging advanced technologies. In the "SST for Africa" project, participants are examining whether tagging shipments from MEATCO, a supplier of additives for meat and fish products, will improve quality management of perishable products, including customer satisfaction, security and efficiency.
In a related press release, SIMTAG co-announced its participation in the "SST for Africa" project to integrate intermodal management and security technologies that SIMTAG and SST have previously demonstrated independently.
Within "SST for Africa", refrigerated trucks and containers that transport beef from the interior of Namibia have been secured with battery-powered RFID sensor bolt seals. The RFID seals are supplied by Savi Technology.
