Executive summary

Trailer and cargo container tracking is a subsegment of asset tracking and aims to increase operational efficiency and make logistics chains more secure Berg Insight’s definition of a real-time tracking solution is a system that incorporates data logging, real-time positioning and data communication to a backoffice application Trailer tracking is often a part of a fleet management solution including both the truck and trailer

The history of fleet management solutions goes back several decades while tracking and monitoring of shipping containers came in focus after 9/11 Today, mobile and satellite networks can provide ubiquitous online connectivity at a reasonable cost and mobile computing and sensor technology delivers high performance, as well as excellent usability All of these components combined enable the delivery of supply chain management, security management and operations management applications linking trailers, containers, cargo and enterprise IT systems

In order to make freight transport efficient, products are packed into logistics units which can remain intact throughout the delivery chain Smaller logistics units such as boxes and pallets are often grouped into larger units and loaded on semi-trailers, swap-bodies, air freight unit load devices (ULDs) or intermodal shipping containers
These loading units can be applicable to one or more modes of transport Semi-trailers are mostly used in road transport, swap-bodies can be transferred between road and rail transport, ULDs are used in air freight transport and shipping containers can be carried on several transport modes At the end of 2014, there were over 20 million intermodal containers and over 13 million trailers worldwide

Berg Insight estimates that shipments of remote tracking systems with cellular or satellite communication capabilities for cargo loading units including trailers, intermodal containers, air freight cargo containers, cargo boxes and pallets reached 043 million units worldwide in 2014 Growing at a compound annual growth rate of 285 percent, the shipments are expected to reach 15 million units in 2019 During the same period the installed base of remote tracking systems is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 262 percent from 18 million units at the end of 2014 to 58 million units by 2019

Tracking of trailers and swap bodies is the largest market segment and accounted for 713 percent of the total installed base of tracking units on trailers and cargo containers at the end of 2014 Intermodal container tracking is the second largest segment with an installed base of 350,000 tracking units at the end of 2014
