Purpose-Built Real-Time Logger for Ocean Container Shipments

With DeltaTrak’s RTL Prime In-Transit Loggers, you will know where your shipment is and if it has suffered a temperature abuse. These loggers provide real-time data and reporting that is viewable in the cloud, helping you make immediate decisions when it comes to your shipments and providing valuable evidence for claims. Trip information is accessible 24/7 from any internet-enabled device.

Recently, DeltaTrak released a data logger purpose-built for ocean container shipments. The FlashLink RTL Prime 3G-2T In-Transit Logger, Model 22367, includes a unique internal and 50ft/15m external probe sensor combination. One logger can monitor supply air temperature in real-time, while also recording temperature at the back of the container. This unique logger provides exporters with a comparison of the real-time supply air temperatures for the front and back of the container on a single graph—from a single logger. Comparing the supply air temperature to the carrier’s temperature data will help determine if cargo damage was caused due to reefer equipment performance or other possible issues, like air flow obstructions.

The 22367 and the other FlashLink Real-Time In-Transit Loggers automatically transmit data via GSM cellular networks to FlashTrak cloud service. FlashTrak is DeltaTrak's industry leading cloud service that provides real-time monitoring for temperature, humidity, light and shock, depending on the real time logger model used.

DeltaTrak recently announced the new FlashTrak Maritime Service to improve supply chain visibility and provide FlashTrak subscribers with end-to-end location and ETA data during ocean transport. The new FlashTrak Maritime Service uses GPS positioning and automatic identification systems to show vessel location and estimated time of arrival. Typically once a container leaves the port, its whereabouts are unknown, but now DeltaTrak customers can confidently move forward with the necessary data to take action. Maritime service is available to customers subscribed to FlashTrak.

DeltaTrak also recently announced a partnership with OPTIMIZ LTD to provide customers with a fast, automated and efficient way to handle freight damage claims. OPTIMIZ LTD is a pioneer in enabling merchants and carriers to collect visual evidence of transit conditions at various points, through remote inspection of containerized cargo and claim resolution. The partnership offers an online service to streamline the claims process, alleviating the frustration of filing tedious paperwork.

Now, you can access the 22367 ocean container video to learn more about how the DeltaTrak unique real-time logger can help you.

  • DeltaTrak’s Real Time Loggers have been a game changer for our trucking program. Having the ability to monitor temperature while trucks are in transit has given us peace of mind knowing the quality of our product has not been compromised. The alert notifications, light sensors, and GPS tracking are just some of the great features that have allowed us to make pro active decisions that have strengthened the integrity of our product. The FlashTrak Cloud Service is easy to use and is a great tool to compare and analyze data. The FlashTrak App is super convenient as well. We have used other reliable DeltaTrak products for many years and we were excited to see these added to their lineup!

  • When it comes to making sense of data (in the supply chain) we have found a partner in DeltaTrak. The fact that I could recharge the real-time logger and the dual batteries made a lot of sense to me. It was user friendly and easy to use. With the uncertainty and complexity of today's supply chain, having an effective chain of custody system is not only a clever idea, but a requirement for effective handling of perishable goods.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend DeltaTrak to your company. During these times of crisis, we were fortunate to work with DeltaTrak to source top of the line Non-Contact forehead thermometers and PPE supplies at a real market price.

    As a healthcare organization, we are a common target for price gouging and abusive practices from several vendors. With DeltaTrak, we found a partner that understands our needs and who always provide world class customer service.

  • Dear Fred, I would like express my appreciation for the good business relationship we have had during 2018. The excellent work of Mr. Jorge Hurtado has given me the confidence to continue maintaining our commercial relationship with the DeltaTrak brand.

    Mr. Jorge Hurtado's customer service efforts are outstanding, especially in finding solutions to the challenges that may arise in the commercial process. In my opinion Mr. Hurtado's professionalism is a model for any company, especially when the client is thousands of kilometers away from Modesto, CA. I look forward to strengthening our successful relationship into 2019.

  • This upcoming fall will mark our 4th full season using DeltaTrak recorders. They are competitively priced and the customer service is always exceptional. We have never had a customer issue with one of their units and we don’t expect to. We use a wide range of DeltaTrak products and we have been more than happy with every one of them.
