MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and MANZANILLO, Mexico, 10/29/2009 --
Grupo Hemas, a rapidly expanding Mexico-based logistics and security firm, has contracted with Savi Networks for its real-time intelligence service that automatically monitors the location, security and condition of shipments transported throughout the supply chain.
Leveraging wireless GPS location and existing cellular infrastructure, Grupo Hemas now can offer its customers the SaviTrak™ intelligence service, which enables the company to improve cargo tracking, operational efficiency, inventory management and the immediate detection of possible security breaches. SaviTrak also enables Grupo Hemas to immediately monitor and take action on changes in the status and condition of temperature-sensitive cargo, hazardous materials and agricultural products.
“We have turned to Savi Networks because its industry-leading service provides complete location, security and environmental visibility of cargo anywhere and anytime,” said Hector Mora, chief executive officer of Grupo Hemas. “SaviTrak adds cost-effective intelligence to cargo entrusted to us by our diverse customer base.”
“With logistics operations serving about 600 locations in Mexico alone, Grupo Hemas is a strategically important customer for Savi Networks in a country that is the third largest trading partner with the United States,” said Neil Smith, chief executive officer of Savi Networks. “We already have commercial and government customers throughout Asia, Europe, North and South America, and now our relationship with Grupo Hemas expands the SaviTrak intelligence service into Mexico.”
Grupo Hemas will provide the SaviTrak service through its Hemaspheria security service, initially to customers doing business in Mexico and eventually for cross-border shipments to and from the United States, Canada and elsewhere worldwide.
