With a double up increase of containers by 2020, this project suggests a more effective solution at container terminals all over the world. By using modern technologies such as GPS, RFID, Impact sensor and data-logging TRITON will improve the container handling significantly. Shippers will suddenly get an insight in how efficient they can ship their goods around the world.
