Rail freights trains have as many as 100 containers for storing cargo, so it is often used to transport tons of cargo over long distances, making it very cost effective for long-distance freight.
However, the long transport routes make it easy to lose cargo and make the workflow difficult to manage once the train stops in several areas for loading and unloading. Therefore, it is necessary to take certain protection and management measures for train containers.
“To prevent cargo loss, we need to strictly manage the unlocking and locking authority, so that unauthorized personnel have no access to containers.”
“As a manager of a logistics company, we need to supervise the loading and unloading of cargo in real time. Only when the train arrives at a specific location, the warehouse manager is allowed to open the container. Visualization of the workflow is necessary for us in order to prevent any accidents in the cargo,” said a logistics company manager.
The Solution from Vanma
Vanma’s goal is to prevent unauthorized access to cargo. Management software can authorize Vanma keys to gain access to specific containers, and only assigned warehouse managers have permission to use the keys to open locks.
Temporary access can be granted. When a train arrives at a destination, warehouse managers can request temporary access. When the phone is connected to the key via Bluetooth and the logistics manager can see the geographic location of unlocking and locking.
Complete audit reports can be generated. The person in charge can see all the records of lock opening and closing for easy management. In case of accidents such as lost goods, The responsibility can be tracked effectively.
