TORSHAVN, FAROE ISLANDS and COPENHAGEN, DENMARK--(Marketwired - Feb 14, 2017) - Faroese Shipping line Smyril Line Cargo has announced that it will work with Globe Tracker to install tracking, monitoring and control devices that provide two way communications with the refrigeration units along with independent wireless sensors that continuously provide sensor data even when the reefers are not powered externally.
