MSC Digital Talks Episode 5 : Unpacking the Benefits of Smart Containers


MSC’s CDIO Andre Simha met with Raphaelle Hemmerlin, Sucafina’s Head of Logistics & Operational Efficiency, at a café in Geneva, to talk about ‘smart containers’: standard containers equipped with an internet-connect device to allow real-time tracking and monitoring.

As part of our #MSCDigitalTalks series, they discuss the many benefits of smart containers, which go far beyond the real-time tracking. The IoT technology also helps to keep an eye on Sucafina’s coffee conditions, providing lots of useful data about the journey. Raphaelle shares some fascinating insights and learnings, as well as useful advice for customers and partners to try smart containers.

" Every cargo trip has a story to tell. There are insights and data we want to leverage "
