Advantages of asset tracking in the automotive environment

Asset management - smart monitoring of the container fleet as a data basis for decisions

The requirements in the area of supply chain management with the desire to save resources and sustainability are becoming increasingly important.
Manual activities for monitoring logistical processes in an increasingly complex and precise environment are becoming more and more time-consuming.
Avoidable activities by employees, such as manually checking locations and carrying out container searches, are increasingly being automated in the course of digitalisation in modern companies.
Errors in the processes can only be detected if the data basis is sufficient and as accurate as possible.
Improvements in transport processes and warehouse management can avoid unnecessary additional costs and enable a reduction in the load carrier pool.

The use of the 4smartlogistics tracking system for the monitoring of (special) load carriers offers our customers the possibility to recognise and realise potential savings and quality assurance measures.

Reduction of container quantity through: Reduction of shrinkage and improvement of the location overview in the container pool


Using the company's own data from its own logistics processes brings many advantages. Companies that know the locations, routes and conditions of their container pools can use this data as a basis for decision-making for process improvements.
But not only that, by knowing the locations and routes of load carriers, lost or incorrectly stored SLTs, for example, can be counteracted immediately.

Cost savings through lower container requirements due to more efficient use of the load carrier pool can thus be realised quickly. But also optimisations due to detected weaknesses in current routes or idle times of goods flows lead to a reduction of manual efforts and thus to cost reductions.

Data is automatically recorded and regularly sent to the cloud-based IoT platform.
A variety of reports are available to customers on this platform, which can be used as evidence for quality management and for external checks such as audits or by customers through customisable reports and documents that can be sent automatically.

Advantages for OEMs and suppliers:


  • Reduction of container requirements
  • Significant reduction of container fleet shrinkage
  • Retrofitting of the container fleet possible
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Reduction of manual efforts by employees
  • No energy supply necessary
