The new FlashLink NOW 4G/5G Real-Time in-Transit Loggers (RTL) represent the next generation of data logging with large LCD screens using 4G/5G LTE with a 2G backup. Models are available for three different trip durations: 50-day, 15-day and 120-day.
Whether you’re shipping by truck, ship, or plane, it’s more important than ever to know where your shipment is and whether it has suffered any environmental abuse.

To help you get visibility into your shipment location and condition, DeltaTrak has released a series of real-time in-transit loggers.
New COVID cases are continuing to wreak havoc in world supply chains. The spread of the COVID Omicron variant has created bottlenecks throughout the world and in particular at many of the world's busiest ports in China. Operations at the world's busiest port of Shanghai are struggling to cope with shipments that have been re-routed from other large Chinese ports such as Shenzhen in the south and Tianjin in the north.
Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on the supply chain. COVID had led to ongoing shortages of products, widespread price increases, and continued supply chain unpredictability. Indeed, when the world economy reopened after largely shutting down at the onset of COVID, supply chains couldn’t keep up with the sudden huge surge in product demand. New COVID variants and various health protocols have also weighed heavily on logistic networks.
On December 8th, H.R. 4996-Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021 easily passed in the House of Representatives on by a vote of 364 to 60. The Act is designed to strengthen the overseas supply chain, support the growth of U.S. exports and eliminate unfair business practices. If this Act becomes law, it will help to ensure that ocean carriers no longer refuse cargo bookings for U.S. exports and that shipping carriers and marine terminal operators certify that any shipping container late fees are fair and comply with federal regulations.
A new queuing system has been developed and implemented to help alleviate port congestion and pollution at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. As of November 16, the system now requires cargo vessels that arrive early at the LA and Long Beach ports to wait 150 miles offshore. Previously the ships were able to stay within a small 40-mile perimeter off the ports. The new system has been developed by the Pacific Maritime Association, the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association and the Marine Exchange of Southern California as well as shipping companies and was signed off on by the twin ports. The new queuing process will not apply to vessels currently in the arrival queue.
