Cargo Signal can enhance the efficiency of your warehouse, transportation, and security/risk operations, as well as the performance of your data and strategy professionals. 

Harnessing the power of IoT technology, Cargo Signal can optimize performance across your supply chain. 



Freight moves 24/7, making 24/7 visibility a must. If you’re still using milestone data to track and trace your shipments, you may not have reliable information available about your shipment while in transit. Our sensors automatically keep you informed of exactly where your shipments are in real time. By increasing the transparency of your carriers, you will be able to provide your stakeholders with more accurate information and better recognize and troubleshoot inefficiencies in facilitating the movement of your cargo toward its destination.



The warehouse is the epicenter of moving freight, and it can be difficult to keep an eye on everything at all times. With real-time visibility at your fingertips, you will know the exact arrival and departure times of your carriers, allowing you to appropriately staff for the influx/outflux of cargo and affording you time to focus on building efficient internal warehouse processes. You will reduce the probability of human error and ensure accurate record-keeping and organization in a fast-paced analog environment.


Risk and Security

Cargo Signal significantly reduces the risk involved in shipping freight. Real-time visibility, access to data that keeps you mindful of high-risk areas, and full carrier transparency means your stakeholders and insurers can be assured of their cargo’s safety. And that means you can negotiate lower rates. If your cargo is mishandled or compromised, our Command Center, staffed by logistics professionals with additional military, law enforcement, and insurance expertise will raise the alarm, contact authorities, and connect you to local resources to take immediate action.


Data, Technology, and Strategy

The real-time visibility of shipments made possible by Cargo Signal allows you to source reliable end-to-end data about your supply chain straight from the source. With sensor-based logistics, you don’t have to rely on self-reporting carriers or warehouses. Reliable information is delivered to you in real time on one easy-to-use platform. Better yet, Cargo Signal is turnkey technology. Our API allows you to integrate our technology into your system with ease and extract data from whatever platform is most convenient for you and your customers. With data organized and streamlined, your tactical teams will operate at peak efficiency.
