Zenatek was founded to supply services in information and communication technology (ICT). It plans, realises and runs systems for dealing with and transmitting data and information on 'computer' technology, specially the development of software applications to monitor container fleets at sea and at land.
Zenatek has extensive management experience both in the civil and military logistical fields and in the development of software programming, in particular custom and commercial software.
Our main product, the Zenatek tracking system (ZTS), introduces a new level of performance in tracking, monitoring and reporting of goods in transit. It provides security as well as reliable information tracing goods any time and assuring delivery at the set conditions.
The Zenatek tracking system gives location and other critical data of the container being tracked by attaching to it a device that contains a small microprocessor, an electronic controller unit and the GPS transmitter/receiver that communicates with the satellite network.
This new smart technology allows the logistic operators to manage and monitor events in the supply chain in real time, as well as the containers traffic in a much better and easier way. It offers customers in transit visibility of their shipments end-to-end, eliminating all uncertainty about the goods being transported, in dry or reefer containers, as well as timely information to re-route shipments if necessary.
The Zenatek tracking system improves efficiency of the supply chain, with high returns just by reducing misuse of containers, avoiding rejected loads due to temperature excursions beyond a pre-established range and among other benefits gives control of demurrages timings.
The service, which lasts as long as the battery does, usually three or four months or between 120 to 150 sent messages, is all comprehensive of the cost of the information it may send during its lifespan, whenever the device is traveling and from any container it may subsequently be attached to, wherever it is worldwide, in the middle of Africa or Asia, through an effective worldwide partnership with Vodafone.
Real-time technology provides data about container tampering, unscheduled stops, door opening/closing, temperature range in which the client want to monitor, and all other environmental parameters depending on what are the client's necessities.
The Zenatek tracking system is based on a device called container tracking device (CTD), which is easily installed directly on the container doors. It is configured on a web portal where the clients can connect via internet with an encrypted code reserved only for them, to consult at any time all the information about the transportation of their containers. This is done via an initial configuration, and subsequent changes that the owner/operator may input into the web portal.
The container tracking device is engineered based on the GPS/GSM technologies that will have a two-way communication - cellular and satellite - responding to customer needs and/or network availability. Remote configuration of temperature thresholds and transmission intervals to the Data Center are also an included feature. The Zenatek tracking system does not require any additional investment in fixed infrastructure such as porticos, readers, repeaters, etc.
The software architecture of the web portal was designed completely by Zenatek, in a way that would allow the comprehensive inclusion of all data, while handling an overwhelming amount of information in real time, without redundancy.
Our unit does not need to be recovered and sent back to the client, eliminating all costs associated with these tasks (recovery personnel, forwarding, re-configuration, re-stocking, etc.). Due to its extended battery life, the client having already paid for the aervice, can still use the container tracking device for further messaging until it runs out of energy and then dispose of it. It is a small and a very sturdy piece of equipment, with simple specifications and even simpler fool-proof installation. It has been tested under EC and FCC standards.
