Andrew Harrison, of Guardfreight International, has created a new satellite-tracked lock or cargo shipments. It is hoped that the “E-Containerlock” will help to prevent £70 billion worth of cargo from going missing every year.
Andrew Harrison came to the NTAILS project and described his concern that E-Containerlocks may not get returned after shipment containers have reached their destination. He asked if a QR code could be used to increase the chances of them being returned, potentially from somewhere on the other side of the world.
The NTAILS team gave me great insight into the options available to me and through that confirmed that the use of QR codes was most suitable for my application. Suggestions were also put forward as to how best to utilise, create and manage the QR codesfor my specific application.
