CalAmp Enters Supply Chain Visibility Market

By Ken Briodagh January 18, 2017

CalAmp, a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has announced it will leverage its acquisition of LoJack to enter the cold chain and supply chain visibility markets with CalAmp Supply Chain Integrity (SCI), an enterprise visibility solution for multinational firms to secure goods in transit, improve supply chain performance and help meet regulatory compliance.

CalAmp SCI provides its customers in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, biotech, food and consumer goods industries with comprehensive supply chain services that enable the reliable, cost effective and safe downstream transit of goods from the manufacturer to distribution to the end consumer.

Increasing regulatory requirements and competitive pressures to reduce costs and improve efficiencies are driving the need for real-time visibility of product location, availability and condition in distribution channels. CalAmp SCI is designed to address these problems by combining GPS and RF beacon cargo sensors and tracking devices with supply chain applications and access to its SC iOn Command Portal to allow customers to track and document chain of custody, physical integrity and logistics efficiency.

With real-time, Web-based visibility of goods in transit, supply chain stakeholders can prevent loss, maintain compliance with business rules and regulatory requirements, and monitor environmental conditions such as temperature, light and humidity to document compliance with regulations.

“End-to-end visibility of temperature-sensitive drugs, food and high-value consumer goods is now an imperative in the highly regulated consumer goods marketplace,” said Paul Washicko, VP and GM, SaaS business, CalAmp. “CalAmp SCI services combine LoJack's longstanding experience in supply chain integrity with CalAmp's expertise in telematics and data analytics to enable multinational companies to comply with strict regulatory requirements, maintain a high quality brand reputation and instill consumer confidence.”
