  • Award: Supplier of the Year.

    • Partnership with SecureSystem.

      In mid-2020, we secured a project for the production of SecSys® CARGO from SecureSystem. SecSys® CARGO enables almost seamless container monitoring in real time and is therefore the ideal solution for the global supply chain of today. Ensuring transparency about critical cargo is becoming increasingly important, especially since the coronavirus pandemic - SecureSystem offers his service to interested parties worldwide as an independent partner - Made in Germany by Kaupke Leiterplatten. SecureSystem's clients include high-tech companies from the automotive, aviation and semiconductor industries as well as from the public sector such as the U.S. government.

      The unique nature of their product and the excellent global contacts of SecureSystem made it easy decision for us to enter into a long-term partnership, during which we have also been commissioned with the further development of "SecSys® REEFER" for refrigerated containers, which is already in its final stages. For us, the "Internet of Things" sector has proven to be an innovative and promising additional area of business, which is why we are all the more pleased that we were able to win the Supplier of the Year Award from SecureSystem in the very first year of our partnership.

      You can find more information about this product on the SecureSystem homepage (www.securesystem.net) as well as in this short video (click here).
