We are looking for startups with great solutions that can be operational within 6 months. How does your solution solve this Challenge? That is up to you – consider the following topics:
Container tracking solutions
Containers that are aboard a ship can be tracked with GPS or AIS data. But how can the containers be tracked when they reach the shore, terminal or being transported by truck or rail? Are there common products (like phone tracking or road cameras) that you are utilizing, with no need for hardware on the container itself?
Gamification of container location database
How can your solution combine a container location database with other data, so it becomes relevant and maybe even fun for truck drivers & the general public to start chasing and scanning container numbers? Your solution could include travel data, odometer, congestion forecasts, etc.
