The global logistics company ISS Global Solutions has finished the beta-testing of GORADAR. The service allows to track in real time the location of any goods during project and multimodal logistics. The browser-based application will be available soon to all logistics operators on a SaaS basis.

ISS Global Solutions has implemented the online cargo tracking service GORADAR in its solutions. The service allows to track the location of any large and oversized cargo during multimodal and project transportation.

The system displays the real location of the cargo in real time, regardless of the type of transport – marine, inland or airfreight. This is GORADAR’s main advantage compared to other solutions available on the market, which, as usual, allow it to track only one mode of transport.

The final field tests of GORADAR took place in 2019 during the delivery of wind turbines from Germany, Turkey and China to the Badamsha wind farm in Kazakhstan. 13 sets of wind turbines (WPPs) with a total volume of 52,418 freight tons were delivered from the ports of Braque (Germany), Bandirma and Izmir (Turkey) to the port on the Caspian Sea, and from there by road to the construction site in Badamsha (Kazakhstan). During the project, GORADAR simultaneously tracked seven ships, more than 30 oversized vehicles and about 200 cargo units.

“During the transportation, we supplied data on cargo units and vehicles to GORADAR, then they were automatically tracked from satellites. Our customer received all information about the status and location of the cargo by the touch of a button on the screen, as well as the status of all vehicles involved in the transportation,” says Andrey Averichkin, engineer at ISS Global Solutions.

According to Andrey Averichkin says, the data contains a visualization of the location on a map, precise geographic coordinates, and by request also a video broadcast.

The GORADAR service allows to reduce labor costs for monitoring cargo and the risks of losing information, since all geodata is provided directly from satellites or from trusted integrators. In addition, GORADAR implements broadcasting from web cameras located both along the route of the cargo, and installed directly on vehicles.

In the near term, the web-based service will become available to all shippers and logistics operators on a SaaS basis.
