Our Mission

We specialize in highly integrated logistics solutions for safe and secured supply chain processes.

We transform any standard container into a smart container, anywhere in the world.

Our mission is to establish a global transport security standard, by providing the most comprehensive solution which is fully integrated with public authorities.

About Us

Founded in 2014 using technology and software developed by Airbus® Defence & Space, SecureSystem® is a privately-owned company with offices in Berlin (Germany) and Washington, D.C. (USA) and distribution partners across the globe.

SecureSystem® is providing a proven high-end security and tracking solution, which ensures container integrity, for safe and secured supply chain processes.

The solution – made in Germany – comprises a mobile hardware unit for the container and a software trust center delivering a comprehensive set of data points. It can be fully integrated into a clients’ existing ERP or supply chain control system.

A key and unique element of SecureSystem is personalized access and container integrity control, with data being received and processed in a highly secure trust center.

SecureSystem features redundant GSM and satellite (Iridium) communication and positioning (GPS). Additional data are provided through various internal and external sensors such as light, temperature and humidity.

We are offering our solution globally to the general logistics market, public authorities and defense industries requiring data and access control through Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, thereby fostering transparency.

The Solution

Foundation for the solution is the SecureSystem® Mobile Unit and the Trust Center with following features:

Personalization and documentation of closing, opening and authorized intermediate-opening procedures.

Regular 256-bit encrypted heartbeat messages with the location and condition of the container, including parameters of the unit to prove the ongoing availability via redundant GSM- and satellite communication channels, for shipment periods exceeding 95 days.

All final- and intermediate opening procedures of the container will be pre-authorized and can be distinguished from unauthorized procedures on the container. These are the basic functions to fulfill demands from AEO-, C-TPAT- and GDP- (pharmaceutical) standards.

SecureSystem® Mobile Unit

  • After closing the container, a digital-key will be uploaded to the mobile unit comprising all transport-, shipping-, alarm- and messaging parameters. This ensures an unchangeable online-report, available for permanent archiving at the end of the transport.
  • The unit can be easily attached between both container doors before closing.
  • Built-in sensors measure light influx, movement, temperature and humidity. Additional door movement detection sensors register container access.
  • Communication-modules (GPS-receiver, GSM- and Iridium-Communication, Bluetooth and Keypad).
  • Additional communication modules and sensors like RFID, chemical sensors, etc. can be integrated at client’s request.

SecureSystem® Trust-Center

  • Transport specific pre-configured message- and alarm-procedures will be activated.

All messages will be sent to the trust center at regular intervals using SMS (GSM) and/or Short Burst Message (Iridium) – depending on the expected routing

  • The Trust Center allows for an in-depth analysis of all relevant data sent from the mobile unit and guarantees storage of shipment reports.
  • SecureSystem® Trust Center is unique since it can easily be integrated into a 3rd party system like Analytics and SAP EWA and caters a maximum of client security and flexibility demands.

SecureSystem® Interactive App

Our interactive mobile app calls a „Digital Key“ from the Trust Center where all basic parameters of the transport, sensors and messaging-procedures, including number of our Mobile Unit are combined. After closing of the container this key will be transferred to our Mobile Unit and “electronic seals” the container.
