GPS Tracking for Shipping Containers

Implement GPS tracking for shipping containers with our long-lasting, battery-powered asset tracking devices.

Build a Better Container Tracking Solution

Track and protect intermodal containers of all shapes and sizes with location and movement history, movement alerts, impact detection, and more with our range of long-life battery-powered container GPS trackers.

GPS tracking for shipping containers is a cost-effective way to manage critical assets at scale. Digital Matter’s uniquely engineered, designed, and manufactured ultra-rugged container tracking devices are built to withstand the toughest environment and weather conditions, so you can rest assured that your assets can be reliably tracked no matter the location or conditions.

“Deploy Once” Low-Power Design

Knowing that container tracking technologies not only need to make it through long journeys with your assets, our devices are also built with a long battery life and built-in battery management and monitoring capabilities, offering a trustworthy and substantial solution to your intermodal shipping container monitoring needs.

Our focus and expertise in low-power design significantly reduces the cost and complexity of device management and technical support. With industry-leading battery life, our battery-powered container GPS trackers perform better, last longer, and require minimal interaction once deployed and can be utilized on loading and unloading equipment, as well as unpowered assets, such as shipping containers and other asset materials.

Smarter Movement-Based Tracking

Customize reporting frequency based on your specific container tracking use case and quickly apply parameter changes with Over-The-Air (OTA) updates.

Periodic Tracking – Reports location periodically throughout the day
Adaptive Tracking – Increases reporting frequency when your asset is on the move
Movement-Based Tracking – Real-time alerts if your asset moves 
Sleep Mode – Devices automatically enter a low-power state (sleep mode) when stationary to conserve data and battery life 

Container GPS Tracking Device Features

Global Connectivity

Cellular (2G, 4G LTE-M/NB-IoT), LoRaWAN®, Sigfox and Bluetooth® Asset Tracking Solutions.

Long Battery Life

Over 10+ years of battery life with built-in battery life management. Battery life monitoring removes any guesswork from the process of operation. Battery life indicators and alerts ensure your IoT container tracking is seamless with continuous data.

GPS Points

Indoor / Outdoor

GNSS, Wi-Fi AP MAC Address Scanning, and Cell Tower location solutions. Track critical assets indoors and outdoors with one device and eliminate the need for expensive RTLS gateways or beacons.

Global Connectivity Icon

LTE-M/NB-IoT Network Roaming

Supports automatic roaming between LTE-M and NB-IoT networks with minimal delay and marginal impact on battery life or performance (roaming SIM required).

Rugged & Weatherproof

Our container tracking IoT devices feature IP68-rated housing, which offers superior protection for all shipping container tracking devices and ensures they reliably operate in the most rugged conditions.

Periodic or Movement-Based

Receive location updates regularly throughout the day or only when movement occurs with smart adaptive tracking technology with shipping container GPS trackers.

Sleep Mode

Stationary devices enter sleep mode, switching the update rate to only once per day until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage.

Impact Detection

Configure impact-detection alerts when g-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold.

Theft Recovery

Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate live-tracking at 30 second intervals for container retrieval.

Sensor Monitoring

Interface with a range of sensors such as temperature, humidity, moisture, depth and more.

Advanced Geofencing

Create custom geofences and alerts if a container enters or leaves specific locations. Geofences can also be downloaded directly to the device for enhanced location-based behaviors.

Easy Install

Multiple installation options for covertly securing devices to containers with screws, bolts, cable ties, rivets, and more.
