Locus Traxx-LoJack partnership addresses threats to supply chain and cargo

SC-integrity Inc., a subsidiary of LoJack Corp., and Locus Traxx Worldwide have announced a partnership to advance and bolster supply chain and cargo shipment security and efficiency. Together, the organizations plan to release a series of bundled tracking and information solutions based on the Locus “SmartTraxxTM GO” tracking technology.

Both companies have significant presence in providing information services to protect the supply chain and cargo markets. Since 2007, Locus Traxx Worldwide has led innovation in the food, produce and cold chain markets, while LoJack SCI, the covert cargo monitoring innovator, has served the broad requirement of tracking solutions for hard goods. Together, they will provide high-value services to the full spectrum of market needs via the innovative and disposable “SmartTraxxTM GO” product, designed and manufactured by Locus Traxx.

Locus Traxx and LoJack SCI both recognize that reliable, intelligent tracking solutions can only be fully utilized if the solution is easy to implement. The collaboration will take full advantage of the power of the SC-integrity Inc. “SC-iOn” and the “Locus Traxx’ Oversight” Web portals to deliver comprehensive security and integrity services for their clients.

Locus Traxx will cooperate in providing information to and through the LoJack SCI-sponsored Supply Chain Information Sharing & Analysis Center. Food is a leading target for theft, and the industry faces increasing regulatory pressures from the FDA. The ability for Supply Chain-ISAC participants to obtain an enhanced view of potential risk or efficiency opportunities in the food, produce and cold chain markets will be extremely beneficial.

“Our strategic vision to grow through partnerships with leading companies such as LoJack SCI is important to our mission," David Benjamin, Locus Traxx Worldwide chief executive officer, said in a press release. "The talent and market reach that our partners bring to the operation strengthen our offerings and deliver great value to our customers.”

“We couldn't be happier with this collaboration," Ted Wlazlowski, LoJack SCI CEO, said in the release. "This venture will allow both Locus Traxx and LoJack SCI to support the latest generation of communication and geo-localization technologies, while continuing to provide high-value service to our customers. Our market is ready for the flexibility and ease in providing a disposable tracking solution; and, together with Locus Traxx, we intend to exceed expectations for reliable, low-cost visibility and control.”
