SecureSeal Systems Ltd has announced a unique partnership with leading European tracking technology company Frotcom International to launch a ground-breaking wireless trailer monitoring service that will transform logistics.
London-based SecureSeal Systems, part of the OEM Group of Companies, has agreed a deal to integrate its very latest wireless RF trailer monitoring technology with the Portuguese company’s flagship telematics in-cab system, providing customers around the globe with cutting-edge equipment for checking on both the security and environment of their goods in transit.
SecureSeal Systems’ world-renowned SecureSeal reusable security seal is already standard specification on transport fleets for some of the largest retailers in the world such as Walmart Brazil, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Massmart and many others.
By also introducing the new cutting-edge SecureRF range, which includes wireless temperature, door and security seal sensors, Frotcom’s upgraded tracking kit significantly increases the number of specialised applications that are available to fleet managers and security professionals, particularly critical for the likes of chilled and frozen food suppliers and fashion and department store retailers.
The first pilot of the combined technology is running in Portugal with supermarket group Sonae, an existing SecureSeal customer, monitoring the security seal and temperature of their trailers directly into the fleet’s Frotcom telematics in-cab system.
Frotcom’s chief executive officer, Valerio Marques, said, "This new partnership gives our customers the opportunity to monitor their security seal as well as other components of the trailer, directly with the Frotcom system, without the hassle of installation wiring."
Cameron Grant, Managing Director of SecureSeal, added: "Frotcom’s integration of wireless door, temperature and security-seal sensors provides their customers with new unique possibilities. Reliability is everything in trailer monitoring and that’s why switching from wired-in to wireless RF is the key to success. This pooling of resources by SecureSeal Systems and Frotcom represents true innovation."
This new partnership with SecureSeal Systems Ltd goes hand in hand with the launch of Frotcom UK, and makes the Frotcom telematics system the only one on the market providing a fully integrated RF monitoring service when using the advanced 868MHz RF equipment.
The deal with Frotcom represents another significant breakthrough for award-winning Enfield company SecureSeal Systems and recognises the OEM Group’s commitment to making the transportation of goods on the highways safer through continued product development in the field of logistics security.
SecureSeal Systems was established in 1976 and is one of the world’s largest distributors of transportation controls and indicative mechanisms across a large range of applications. Frotcom has been a global provider of vehicle tracking systems since 1996 it is based in Portugal and is currently sold in over 30 countries worldwide.
