‘Where is my container?’

Shipping container handling is one of the latest targets for automation, which is where Korean startup, Cyberlogitec, is already staking a claim with the aide of Tibco.

Providing full tracking information of shipping containers, wherever they are in the world and whatever means of transport is moving them, is a business where every player – from the individual customer waiting for their new purchase through to the banks managing the money that makes the whole process work -hinges around one focal point, the shipping company.

As the vast majority of trade is now carried in containers, on railways and road, but most often on huge container ships, knowing where containers are in the world and where they are headed next is of vital importance. From that comes all the associated data – what it carries, who the customers are, who gets paid what and when for the contents, and so on.

This is the task that South Korean start-up Cyberlogitec has taken upon itself with the objective of providing shipping companies with a replacement for their often aged proprietary legacy systems. Yet in just one year of operation the company has, according to its Head of Terminal Automation, Phil Kang, grown to be number two in the market for automated shipping management solutions.
