Sony Network Communications Europe and Ocean Network Express (ONE) are working together to develop a smart container solution.

ONE said it plans to integrate the smart containers across its global fleet, granting deeper insights about their fleet, and improved container visibility to enable more informed decision making and more efficient box movements.

The tie-up will also allow customers to get real-time updates on their container movements and access more reliable shipping data, said ONE.

The companies said the collaboration will make the most of ONE’s experience in the container shipping industry and Sony’s experience in sensing, tracking and connectivity technology.

Sony’s current offering in the logistics sector is its Visilion cargo and asset tracking solution.

“We are honoured to collaborate with ONE and are dedicated to creating a solution that can help carriers take their global operations to the next level,” said Erik Lund, Head of the Tracking Division, Visilion, Sony Network Communications Europe. “The real-time insights gained across ONE’s fleet will allow them to further optimise their shipping business and in doing so, improve customer service. We look forward to working together and creating the future of logistics.”

“From its very inception, ONE is a business that believes in the value of collaboration,” said Hiroki Tsujii, Managing Director, Product & Network at Ocean Network Express. “Now, together with Sony, we are excited to create the future of container shipping. This is a future where we have access to the insights we need to offer our customers a higher quality of service to forge a new standard of process excellence. The development of this smart container solution will combine the very best from experts in our respective fields. Our joint mission will aim to push the limits of what we are capable of with innovative logistics technologies.”
