Transportation & Logistics

From rail, maritime, over the road to cold chain monitoring and optimization. MultiTech’s products enable the solutions that deliver measurable impacts daily.

IoT for Transportation & Logistics

When you’re moving high-value assets around the globe, using multiple modes of transportation, you are likely to need a variety of communications technologies to understand both the state and location of your goods, wherever they may be on their journey.

MultiTech can help with low power wide area networking technologies as well as global-capable cellular devices to keep your assets in sight. Moreover, they can connect the very transportation infrastructure used to move them — from railways to container ships and more.


MultiTech enables connected railways with industrial communications hardware to help monitor car condition and location, track health, brake handling and temperature, door and loading status, wayside and crossing status and signaling -- to help trains and their freight arrive safely, reliably and on time.

Maritime Shipping

Pair LoRaWAN technology with shipboard systems to enable container tracking and more -- even at sea. Shipwide sensor networks leverage the onboard intelligence of MultiTech gateways for alarming and response, and can store and forward information from travel time over less costly networks when in port.

Cold Chain

Temperature is critical for food safety and a variety of pharmaceuticals and other medical and lab supplies. MultiTech can connect coolers, refrigerators, air conditioners and even refrigerated trucks to ensure safe delivery to healthcare and foodservice operations.
