Hapag-Lloyd has taken the first step in its major project to equip its entire dry container fleet with real-time tracking devices. The first of these IoT devices are now being installed on dry containers at the CMR depot in Wilhelmsburg, a district of the shipping company’s hometown of Hamburg. In the following weeks and months, installations will begin in other selected container depots in North and South Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Within the next year, up to 200 depots worldwide will take part in the installation of 1.6 million of these devices on standard containers. Plans call for the vast majority of Hapag-Lloyd’s dry containers to be outfitted with these devices by the end of 2023.
