2621

WORLDWIDE INNOVATION:

The CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE is the first container ship ever to have in-built connected container technology thanks to the Group’s partnership with TRAXENS

  • Unique technology, which transforms containers into smart connected objects,
  • Real-time container monitoring through hi-tech devices,
  • CMA CGM and TRAXENS: Front runners of Big Data for intermodal transport.

The CMA CGM Group, a worldwide leading shipping group, announced that CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE is the first container ship in the world to be equipped with TRAXENS technology, which transforms containers into smart connected objects.

TRAXENS is a unique technology that transforms containers into smart connected objects. The CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE, the group’s new 18,000 TEU flagship vessel, has become the first ship in the world using TRAXENS technology. This technology transforms standard containers into smart, connected, objects and introduces the multimodal transportation system into the Big Data era. The TRAXENS’ equipped smart containers aboard the CMA CGM Bougainville will be able to communicate among themselves and to the ship’s communication infrastructure by using built-in relay antennas, allowing even the most deeply hidden container to be connected. All the collected data will then be sent to CMA CGM Headquarters in Marseille via TRAXENS’ data centers.

The TRAXENS system collects real-time data throughout the container’s transport whether on land or at sea, adding considerable value to the shipping line and to its customers, insurers, and customs.  A wide range of data from each container can be gathered and transmitted to the CMA CGM group: location, temperature, humidity level, vibrations, impacts, attempted burglary, customs clearance status and more.  The devices provide even greater added value in the refrigerated transport of perishable goods.  They can remotely control and adjust the temperature of refrigerated containers and will allow resource optimization for routine inspections.

With more than 12 million containers transported by CMA CGM it means that a huge amount of information will be collected and analyzed with the objective of improving the service provided to the end customers.
