Florida Marketrack Spotlight: Locus Traxx keeps up with produce

loctrax

JUPITER, FL — It started with a simple idea: Help transporters track loads during shipment, keeping up with real-time temperature, location and security monitoring for perishable and high-value cargo. Now Locus Traxx has become a world leader in that space with monitoring available by land or sea and soon by air.

The technology has changed quickly, too, from a lunchbox-sized model to a simple pull-tab activated disposable (or recyclable) unit about the size of a packet of dental floss.   

Locus Traxx is focused on improving on-time deliveries, food safety, shelf life and  security through  advanced  IoT  (Internet  of  
Things) technology and innovative service.

CEO David Benjamin gave us a tour of the south Florida headquarters and talked about the evolution — and future — of Locus Traxx.
