“It is our vision that all containers that move across the global supply chain will be IoT enabled and have connectivity to the cloud,” said Mike Fitzgerald, chairman of Net Feasa. “At sea, the combination of Net Feasa’s EvenKeel & KVH Watch IoT platform will accelerate the realisation of this goal. We are a global, open standards-based service provider to the world’s container tracking market, wirelessly enabling all container monitoring devices on vessels. Traditionally, the biggest challenge to container connectivity on ships has been the cost of satellite connectivity. KVH will addresses this challenge with cost-effective hardware and a bandwidth-efficient solution for the maritime IoT market.”
“Container tracking and monitoring is of vital importance to the maritime industry’s ability to move a tremendous volume of goods around the world, and we are thrilled to be able to support the operational efficiency of this segment,” stated Sven Brooks, senior director of IoT business development for KVH.
