“Theft and damage during transport disrupt the supply chain, hence risk management has become an absolute necessity set to accelerate even further because of the COVID-19 crisis,” says Ellen Theeuwes, Business Unit Director High Value, Ahlers. “Our new solution challenges current market standards – armed guards – providing customers such as Philip Morris International, with a comprehensive total approach including a state-of-the-art solution for monitoring and security of the transportation of their high-valuable goods.”
Theeuwes continues: “Today, it is just a tiny mobile security kit that does the job based on the input, following decades of market experience from Ahlers. The solution, developed by their partner ‘Bagaar’, a Belgian IoT company, which now provides an answer to increased security requirements, that businesses are looking for.
“With the Ahlers Safe-T solution, we provide the highest security standards delivery goods door-to-door, reducing the dependency of human interaction (armed guards) while realising significant cost savings, avoiding the impact that theft has on product availability and brand image. Our solution covers all stages of transportation, Ellen Theeuwes, further explains, including our own 24/7 monitoring center, route, incident management functionality, all with real-time visibility and detailed analytics.”
Theeuwes concludes: “The benefits of the solution are no doubt its flexibility with a mobile security device, which can be installed within 5 minutes. The solution offers track and trace capabilities in real-time 24/7 and includes audio, video, sensors, and a panic button.
