CIMC and Globe Tracker Push Commercial Roll Out of Smart Technology for the Silk Road

SHENZHEN, CHINA--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2015) - CIMC Internet of Mobile Things International Operation and Service Co., Ltd. (CIMC IOMT) and Globe Tracker International, ApS announce commercial roll out of Smart Containers, Smart Logistics and Smart Terminal products for China's Silk Road.

After announcing their partnership late last year, CIMC IOMT and Globe Tracker are now producing smart containers for CIMC customers. CIMC's Yangzhou Tonglee Special Container, Qingdao CIMC Special Reefer Co. Ltd and Nantong CIMC Transportation and Storage co, Ltd. are the first divisions within CIMC to be selling the smart products.

"The goal is to have all CIMC divisions supplying the container shipping, trucking, railway and logistics industries with global tracking, monitoring and remote asset management services and equipment. Our immediate target is China's One Belt One Road initiative," according to Dr. Shouqin Zhou of CIMC.

These CIMC smart products will be on all types of containers, but will also include trucks, truck trailers, railway cars, as well as Inland and Marine wireless terminal infrastructure and other products that will benefit from global tracking, monitoring and remote asset management services. In this collaboration with Globe Tracker, CIMC IOMT will introduce international advanced hardware technology and system platform service to the market under the CIMC brand. The partnership between CIMC and Globe Tracker will enhance the global capacity of CIMC IOMT in CIMC asset management service and demonstrate CIMC's acknowledgment of Globe Tracker's competence in remote asset management.

"We are pleased to take the next big step in the relationship between our companies. We will begin to ramp up our volumes to meet CIMC's demand and the proliferation of the technology on the Silk Road," said Jim Davis, CEO of Globe Tracker.
