  • Solution will enable global cargo to come with a digital passport.
  • Technology can be integrated with government servers for an electronic audit of cargo’s movement.
  • Partnership was selected to join CORE, a DHS program to demonstrate container security technology.

The Swiss Arviem AG and the American Powers International LLC announced a partnership to verify cargo and monitor its movement on global shipments between the United States and the European Union.

Arviem’s real-time cargo monitoring technology along with its American partner’s chain of custody solution will enable global cargo to come with a digital passport that will serve as a verifiable transcript of the shipment’s journey. This control technology can be integrated with government servers and various other government requirements, serving as an electronic audit of the cargo’s movement, access and control from the cargo’s origin to its destination.

Arviem’s partnership with Powers International has been selected to join CORE, a public-private partnership established by the United States Department of Homeland Security and by the United States Department of the Interior. The goal of CORE is to simultaneously optimize and strengthen supply chain security for shipments between the U.S. and the EU. One of its purposes is to demonstrate the use of container security technology by involving various supply chain stakeholders, public entities, border authorities, and supply chain providers.

“Having our newly established partnership selected to join the CORE Consortium alongside public and private entities such as the Interpol, Customs Cooperation Council, and Proctor and Gamble certainly validates our efforts towards increasing visibility in global trade,” said Stefan Reidy, CEO of Arviem. Thanks to Arviem’s partnership with Powers International, organizations on both sides of the Atlantic will benefit from open and transparent supply chains. Powers International will provide the electronic documentation of the identity of the individuals handling the cargo both at its origin and its final destination, while Arviem’s intelligent sensing technology and its data analytics software will monitor the cargo’s conditions while in transit.

Arviem offers real-time end-to-end cargo monitoring services, providing accurate location and quality condition monitoring of cargo throughout the global supply chain. Arviem enables its customers with the ability to manage major events as they occur throughout the chain of custody.
