Spedag offers solution for East Africa
Spedag Interfreight recently unveiled its real-time tracking solution Perispoor to more than 500 interested stake-holders. The product enables cargo to be tracked during its journey by sea, rail and road.
Spedag’s customers can use a mobile app or website to track their goods whilst en route between any seaport and Eastern Africa, or vice-versa. The position of a shipment is shown in real time on a Google map.
The new product was presented by Daniel Richner, chairman, and Dilip Bhandari, CEO of Spedag Interfreight, during year-end events in Kigali (Ruanda) and Kampala (Uganda).
The feature was developed by Periplus (Switzerland), a start-up focusing on incremental innovation solutions for the logistics industry. Periplus creates the link to products based on distributed ledger technologies. The company is currently working on a private blockchain solution to verify and provide signed delivery orders in real-time to Spedag customers. (mw)
