BELMONT, N.C., Jan. 8 (UPI) -- European Datacomm and Trade-Route announced a joint venture with Powers International to secure shipping containers.
North Carolina-based Powers International says its Powers-Secured Satellite System will provide a critical technology component for EDC and Trade-Route's new container security initiative between Europe and Asia.
As part of the joint venture, Powers International will integrate its PSSS technology into the EDC-76 end-to-end container tracing and tracking device being used for the Europe-Asia container security plan.
"The United States, Europe and Asia have the same interests: greater port security and greater efficiencies and visibility in a global supply chain with seamless monitoring and control of the integrity of shipping containers during their voyages," Jim Giermanski, Powers International chairman, said in a statement.
"For Asia, this powerful team will provide a solution that meets and enhances those goals and interests."
