A real-time tracking device designed to curb thefts, with an emphasis on security of imported goods, is new from Emerson.

The GO Real-Time Secure Tracker uses GPS tracking technology and security measures that are compliant with the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program that expedites certain loads through customs. A steel locking bolt guards against theft while shipments are on the road or being shipped on the water, according to a news release.

The GO Real-Time Secure Tracker will alert users if a container door has been opened or if shipments diverge from a programmed course.

“This latest innovation from Emerson was developed to enhance supply chain security, reduce the financial loss from stolen cargo, and assist law enforcement in the recovery of high-value items,” Frank Landwehr, vice president and general manager, said in the release.

Emerson will be demonstrating the technology at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit Oct. 19-20 in Orlando, Fla., at booth No. 851.
