Bloodhound Tracking Device


Ocean Containers

One of the biggest challenges within the currently marketed track and trace systems is the difficulty of communicating when the container does not have a field-of-view of the sky or strong connectivity to ground-based networks such as cellular or trunked radio, including containers stacked for ocean transport.

A specific leading product that claims to give real-time tracking, admitted that it cannot track a shipment on the ocean real-time when there is no cellular or Wi-Fi signal, so the customer only receives its location data once its container reaches its destination Port, if it ever does.

The cost for repositioning containers within the US is approximately $500 Million per year, per ocean carrier. The average turn-time (round trip) per container globally is 4 round turns per year. With accurate tracking of empties, the ocean carriers can each gain up to 2 additional turns per container per year, but easily 1 additional turn per year. That is a huge cost reduction!

Container Monitoring & Detection

53-foot Trailers and Vans

It has been reported that half of supply chain costs in the US are related to trucking;  there’s significant inefficiencies between warehouse, operations, and freight.  Containers transported through remote locations by truck or rail can be hard to track by most devices on the market, but BTD can identify exactly where your asset is!

Non-Powered Equipment

If you need to track a non-powered asset, including, but not limited to trailers, shipping containers, or generators, BTD includes sensors for location, container door state, temperature, pressure, humidity, hazardous chemical, radiological detection, and a suite of sensors intended for the detection of life signs.
