SmartTape - Soter

Key Features

  • Tamper evident
  • One time use
  • Each piece is unique
  • Metal surface compatible
  • Suitable for outdoor use
  • Industrial grade adhesive

Description

The SmartTape is a patented one-time use tape that can be used to secure containers, trucks, and other closed conveyances.  The SmartTape is one of the main components of Soter’s TransitSecure platform. When applied, the SmartTape will cure and adhere to the surface to produce a visible tamper-evident mark on the tape. Also, any removal of the SmartTtape will render it electronically unreadable which will be a further indication of tamper. The SmartTape cannot be duplicated due to this unique electronic component and will serve as a clear indication of the integrity in the chain of custody of the cargo.

Platform

Soter’s TransitSecure solution is a quality assurance and risk mitigation platform for physical cargo that integrates the SmartTape, a mobile application, and a web platform. The mobile application syncs with the SmartTape to add photos, comments, and gain timely information about the cargo. Location, status, photos, and relevant cargo data can be reached through the web platform, helping players in the global logistics industry get visibility of their supply chains, plan and execute better, gain more profitability, and Sleep Well.

ATLAS® ULock

Key Features

  • Chain of custody
  • Bluetooth 4.1 compliant
  • Up to 3 year battery life
  • Stainless steel locking cable
  • Suitable for outdoor use
  • Up to 30m range

Description

The ATLAS® ULock is an electronic seal that is suitable for securing the chain of custody in a supply chain. Its compact size and long battery life of up to 3 years makes it viable for the locking of small to medium trucks, boxes and other lockable conveyances that don’t require real time security tracking. The ATLAS® ULock is well suited for milestone tracking whereby the integrity of the chain of custody can be verified electronically and visually. The ATLAS® ULock has 3 locking mechanisms, namely the stainless steel cable for physical security, the serialised mechanical seal for visual security and the electronic arming mechanism for electronic security.  With its easy readability using a smart phone (Android) that has Bluetooth 4.1, any person in the supply chain can provide monitoring for the ATLAS® ULock.

Platform

The ATLAS® ULock platform provides a chain of custody workflow that allows users to create trips and conveyances that are to be secured. Using the ATLAS® ULock mobile app, the ATLAS® ULock can be assigned to trips to be locked on the conveyances and armed. Thereafter, inspection, transfer of custody and/or delivery in the supply chain can be performed using the mobile app with a Bluetooth 4.1 smart phone (Android). All transactions and events is visible on the web platform to track the chain of custody. In the event of a tamper, this would be detected at the next scan and an exception procedure can be initiated to investigate further using the ATLAS® ULock platform as a guide. 

More complex tracking requirements will be subject to further discussion and customisation.
