French liner carrier CMA CGM has announced a new order for 50,000 Traxens trackers, aiming to fit containers with connected trackers to provide greater traceability - monitoring location, temperature, shocks, and when container doors are opened.

As a structuring shareholder and the first company to have invested in Traxens in 2012, CMA CGM participated in the development of the solution by testing it for several years, then launching it commercially in 2018.

"Thanks to the order of 50,000 trackers this year, CMA CGM is implementing its decision to deploy the Traxens solution on a large scale for the benefit of its customers," the shipping giant said in a press release.

CMA CGM customers who opt for the Traxens solution can efficiently monitor their goods, and thus be more informed at every stage of the shipping process. This makes supply chain management easier, with an intuitive online interface updated in real time.

"Along with data that is being transmitted 24/7, the customer, should they want to dive deeper into analysing the collected information, can benefit from a personalized diagnosis of its supply chain. Customers who choose the Traxens solution can thus identify any logistical problems and implement fast, effective optimisation solutions," it said.

"With Traxens, the CMA CGM Group is reaffirming its commitment to offering customers solutions that are adapted to their needs and that help support their activity with an improved understanding of the entire supply chain, thus boosting their development," it added.
