The right tracking technologies for every challenge

There is no such thing as one tracking technology, but always the best combination for your application - and you get that from BOX ID.

Distributed data collection - just as your processes require

Mit BOX ID erfolgt die Datenerfassung entlang Ihrer verteilten logistischen Prozesse über ein einzigartig breites Spektrum von Technologien- und Datenschnittstellen. Nur so kann eine robuste Prozessautomatisierung bei gleichzeitig höchster Kosteneffizienz erreicht werden.With BOX ID, data is recorded along your distributed logistic processes via a uniquely wide range of technology and data interfaces. This is the only way to achieve robust process automation with maximum cost efficiency at the same time.

Data Origin - Where does the data come from

Based on Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs), supplemented by mobile communications and satellite networks, we offer you a comprehensive selection of leading sensors for cross-location networking of your logistical assets. Our unique model-based approach also enables you to merge numerous other identification technologies and data sources so that the best possible collection and data quality is guaranteed – because this is the only way to automate your process in a robust way.


Low Power Wide Area Networks are radio networks that are designed for IoT applications. While the focus is on bandwidth in classic mobile communications, LPWANs are designed for very low bandwidths for data transmission. On the other hand, communication is very energy-efficient. Our LPWAN-based tracking devices can remain battery-operated in the field for many years. They are located within the entire area covered by the respective radio network and can record sensor data.


Depending on the application, it may be necessary to ensure a finer spatial resolution in order to record, for example, passing certain points (gate) or entering and leaving local zones (presence detection) or the loading and unloading of vehicles (vehicle gateway). Depending on the boundary conditions, RFID and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) are particularly suitable for this. However, these require a certain local infrastructure of readers or gateways.

Optical Ident

Barcode, data matrix and QR are highly efficient identification methods. The BOX ID software has its own QR engine, which can be used to automate everything to do with containers and shipments based on QR codes. All types of mobile devices (Android, iOS) are available as input devices, since they can be used without software installation. We also provide dedicated apps and integrations for certain manufacturers.

ERP data points

In addition to the sensor data mentioned above, ERP data points also represent a source for extracting tracking information or target information for the process. For this purpose, the BOX ID software can receive and process data records such as booking data and loading lists either cyclically or in real time with maximum scaling.

The right combination for your processes

We know that there is no single tracking solution, but good and less good combinations of technologies and data sources, depending on the process and application. That is why we are constantly working to improve and expand the base of devices and data sources for the BOX ID solution.

In this way, we want to ensure that you can also provide the best solution for your application in a sustainable and long-term manner. Our sales team will be happy to advise you on what this can look like.

0 %
less shrinkage

With BOX ID, you reduce the loss of containers and other mobile assets to virtually zero, on average by approx. 95%.

0 %
less turnaround time

With BOX ID, you can significantly reduce the turnaround times of shuttle packaging, on average by approx. 20%.

0 %
less tied up capital

With BOX ID, you need significantly fewer mobile assets with the same availability, on average about 15%.

Process data easier than ever with the BOX ID software

The core of our product range is the BOX ID Data Intelligence Platform. The cloud service is highly available and makes it possible to manage and merge any number of mobile tracking devices, as well as additional information from other data sources (ERP systems, telematics).

The combined data enables the provision of business services tailored to your requirements. A comprehensive REST API interface allows any evaluations to be generated and transferred to other target systems (ERP or TMS systems).
