Loginno reveals details of long-life smart container device
Connected digital container monitor runs off solar and batteries and has a life of more than ten years.
In a closed event held in Tel Aviv, Loginno unveiled the 5th generation of its AGAM device. It can be installed as a standard container vent, allowing every container service depot to install it and the company says they can do this with no training.
Founder Amit Aflalo, the man behind Loginno's unique tech, claims that is "both the smartest and the most affordable shipping container brain in existence today." Says Aflalo, "It is the only wide-area communications device with battery life of ten-plus years without recharge, effectively making it a permanent solution for every shipping container, never to be taken off during its entire lifetime of usage."
The long battery life is partly due to work done with fellow Israeli startup 3GSolar. Other features include measurement of the container's SOLAS VGM weight, piloted with the Israeli port of Ashdod; a CyberSeal to replace physical seals, which is a concept being worked on by Loginno with involvement of Lloyd's Register; and the very-recently-announced smart shipping container port integration with Navis.
Adds Aflalo: "We have created an internal network of 'Contopia partners'. These are innovative companies ranging from start-ups with cutting edge technologies, and industry giants with global reach and influence. All are interested to contribute to the success of the digital shipping company model, and all will be getting a front seat to this unique sandbox we are now creating, and gain insights on how Contopia (Container Utopia) is going to change the world of logistics."
