Tips for Security Managers: Broaden Visibility, Avoid Losses, and Stay Alert

Security Managers play a key role in protecting a company's bottom line. That begins with supply chain protection. Preventing losses can be made easier with IoT-powered sensors and the real-time visibility they provide. 




Your cargo is moving 24/7, making cargo security a 24/7 job.

As a Security Manager, you are at the front lines of ensuring cargo safety. If all you have is access to milestone shipment data, you may not know your freight is in trouble until it’s too late. 

Compromised freight can lead to severe downstream effects like costly reorders and supplemental shipping costs, cancellation or postponement of scheduled major events or conferences, and irreversible damage to company reputation. 

But that doesn’t mean you need to purchase high-cost security escorts to watch over your shipments at all times. 

The Cargo Signal Solution

The IoT-powered sensors that Cargo Signal attaches to global freight track real-time data about shipments, providing end-to-end visibility, security, and quality control.

Our technology is supported by a Command Center staffed by logistics professionals who monitor your freight around the clock, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If anything goes wrong with your shipment, Command Center will intervene on your behalf to solve the problem.

  • Customizable alerts allow you to receive updates on arrival & departure times, delay times, carrier route deviation & stationary times, cumulative & consecutive temperature, humidity, light exposure, shock & tilt, and more.
