SC-integrity, Locus Traxx Join Forces to Address Supply Chain, Cargo Threats

SC-integrity Inc. (LoJack SCI) and Locus Traxx Worldwide (Locus Traxx) announce an alliance to significantly advance and bolster supply chain and cargo shipment security and efficiency. Together, the organizations plan to release a series of bundled tracking and information solutions based on the Locus “SmartTraxxTM GO” tracking technology. SC-integrity Inc. is a subsidiary of LoJack Corporation. Locus Traxx Worldwide is a privately held technology firm.

Both companies have prominent positions and significant presence in providing information services to protect the supply chain and cargo markets. Since 2007, Locus Traxx Worldwide has led innovation in the food, produce and cold chain markets, while LoJack SCI, the covert cargo monitoring innovator, has served the broad requirement of tracking solutions for hard goods. Together, they will now provide high value services to the full spectrum of market needs via the “SmartTraxxTM GO” product, designed and manufactured by Locus Traxx. The collaboration will take full advantage of the power of the SC-integrity, Inc. “SC-iOn” and the “Locus Traxx’ Oversight” web portals to deliver comprehensive security and integrity services for their clients.

Locus Traxx will cooperate in providing information to and through the LoJack SCI sponsored Supply Chain Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Supply Chain-ISAC). Food is a leading target for theft, and the industry faces increasing regulatory pressures from the FDA. The ability for Supply Chain-ISAC participants to obtain an enhanced view of potential risk or efficiency opportunities in the food, produce and cold chain markets will be extremely beneficial.

Locus Traxx Worldwide CEO, David Benjamin says, “Our strategic vision to grow through partnerships with leading companies such as LoJack SCI is important to our mission. The talent and market reach that our partners bring to the operation strengthen our offerings and deliver great value to our customers.”

LoJack SCI CEO, Ted Wlazlowski added, “We couldn't be happier with this collaboration. This venture will allow both Locus Traxx and LoJack SCI to support the latest generation of communication and geo-localization technologies, while continuing to provide high value service to our customers. Our market is ready for the flexibility and ease in providing a disposable tracking solution; and, together with Locus Traxx, we intend to exceed expectations for reliable, low cost visibility and control.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
