   CMA CGM said it has ordered 50,000 Traxens trackers, increasing its offering of “connected containers.”
    Traxens sells trackers that allow shippers to trace shipments, monitoring location, temperature, shocks and when the doors are opened.
    CMA CGM is an investor in Traxens and after testing the equipment for several years launched use of the equipment commercially in 2018.
    Traxens said MSC committed last October to equipping 50,000 dry cargo containers with its equipment. It said it also has signed dozens of contracts with beneficial cargo owners and in March partnered with SNCF Logistics on real-time tracking of 5,000 rail wagons carrying traditional freight containers equipped with Traxens’ smart container technology on their way from France to China.

   


   

   

   


   

However, if shipping alliances are outlawed altogether, then freight rates will skyrocket because alliances are the only way that carriers can operate ultra-large container ships (ULCVs) effectively.

Drewry’s World Container Index, a composite of container freight rates on eight major routes to and from the U.S., Europe and Asia, was down 1.4% to $1,351.15 per 40-foot container as of June 13.
