   Maersk Container Industry (MCI) is calling the upcoming launch of its Sekstant Global Guidance system for reefer digitalization “the company’s most significant technological breakthrough” since the introduction of its Star Cool reefer.
   Available to the market in 2019, Sekstant will provide container operators with accurate data at any point along the transportation chain.
   “Whether on high seas on board a container vessel or inland carried on a truck, the data can be visualized on the shipper’s desktop and seamlessly integrated into their IT systems. This is a great leap forward in transparency and optimising utilisation,” said Anders Holm, global head of sales and marketing at MCI.
   The key to the concept’s effectiveness is that it stays online, using a centralized cloud architecture. The system is enabled by a state-of-the-art Smart Edge device that includes wide-band 4G LTE modem connectivity with global coverage.
   “All data transmissions are secured and encrypted. At the same time, the machine data MCI receives can now be processed and transmitted to Star Cool reefer users to give them previously unseen levels of transparency and guidance,” Holm said.

   He added, “We will be releasing a base range of functions in 2019, but we have plenty more in the pipeline. Additional functions will be developed in close cooperation with our customers, which will enable us to provide data-driven packages to support specific customer requirements.”
   MCI says this is the first time a reefer original equipment manufacturer has offered a system of this kind directly to its customers.

Workers who are deemed essential to our nation’s safety and productivity deserve their full paychecks this Friday. They did not waiver in their commitment to the public good. We need to pay them.
The Drewry-assessed World Container Index, a composite of container freight rates on eight major routes to and from the U.S., Europe and Asia, was down 5.7 percent to $1,689.95 per 40-foot container as of Jan. 10.
