Meratus Launches SMARCO, the First-of-its-Kind Smart Container Solution

Indonesia’s leading shipping company, Meratus, has unveiled its latest innovation, SMARCO-Smart Container, to meet the growing demand for more efficient and secure container shipping. With advanced IoT sensors, GPS tracking, and cloud-based technology, SMARCO allows businesses to have full visibility and control over their container shipments, including real-time monitoring of movement, speed, shock, intrusion, and temperature changes. SMARCO’s advanced security system can detect any unauthorized opening or forced entry, preventing the possibility of theft or illegal smuggling. This technological innovation is the first of its kind in the shipping industry in Indonesia.

After arrival at the destination, customers receive a comprehensive report on every factor that occurred during the shipment process. This report can be used to analyze the shipment’s performance, identify factors that need to be optimized for cost efficiency, time effectiveness, and carbon emission reduction, and improve supply chain effectiveness and security systems.

“SMARCO is Meratus’ new innovation that allows our customers to have full visibility of the entire container shipment process. With real-time information, our customers can easily track their containers on land or sea. The information available in SMARCO can also be used for analyzing operational cost savings and better security systems,” said Farid Belbouab, CEO of Meratus.

The SMARCO device is a stand-alone all-in-one tracker alarm that provides full protection for shipping containers. The device has various features, including 16-sided intrusion detection, temperature sensing, shock detection, weight prediction technology, and built-in logging. It also has solar panel battery charging, low power technology, vibration and acceleration sensing, and motion sensing capabilities. The SMARCO device has a long battery life of up to 10 years and can track the container’s location using GPS technology. Additionally, it has data security encryption and fast network registration, ensuring the safety and efficiency of your container shipment.
