Today marks a new beginning for supply chain management on all modes of global transportation and goods movements. Bloodhound Tracking Device (BTD) received $5 million dollars in angel funding on January 24, 2023. This funding is to develop the next generation of supply chain tracking, visibility, and security devices that will support real-time visibility through patented communications technologies from any location in the world to a central communications and control center for review, action, or notifications to users.
The BTD device can be covertly affixed to a container, truck, trailer, rail car, or other physical asset that requires visibility, status, location, and movement details which are critical for the security of the products in the conveyance or the physical asset itself.
Bloodhound Tracking Device Inc. was founded by four forward-thinking individuals who have significant expertise and standing in supply chain execution, logistics, transportation, and satellite communications technologies. Within the next year, the BTD team will deliver working prototypes of the device that will produce a dramatic shift in the way supply chains are managed.
The key difference will be BTD’s ability to provide stakeholders and logistics service providers with access to real-time data upon demand. It will also provide Customs and Border Protection with a well-defined and documented security profile of all containers facing inspection and provide visibility to those containers with an anomaly-free transit.
Today, BTD is one step closer to providing cargo owners and their logistics service providers with a path to high level of security and visibility. This new device and system will be able to prove to regulators and inspectors at ports of entry that the contents and conveyance are indeed intact without compromise from the point of origin until the point of arrival. This ability has never been possible before BTD.
This is an exciting time for the logistics and supply chain industry, as BTD will revolutionize how global supply chains are managed and controlled. Since COVID, all supply chain practitioners have concluded that supply chain visibility is priority one. BTD delivers on this requirement while also delivering proof of security and integrity of goods for a wide array of stakeholders.
