Cubic GS-5B devices prevent intrusion and theft of consumer goods for U.S. forces
VIENNA, Virginia – November 14, 2011 - Cubic Global Tracking Solutions, the asset
visibility solutions provider of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), has deployed its Container Tracking and Monitoring (CTMS) solution for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and American Presidents Line (APL). Cubic’s solution for AAFES relies on the Cubic Global Sentinel GS-5B devices, referred to by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as Generation II Satellite Enabled Tracking and Intrusion Detection (GEN II SETID) tags.
AAFES is a DoD organization that ships retail consumer goods for sale to U.S. forces around the world. AAFES identified they had insufficient visibility of product location and condition while en route and at interim holding locations. This translated to potential vulnerability for diversion and theft of high-value goods while in transit and at the temporary holding locations. APL, the principal intermodal shipping company supporting AAFES, suggested AAFES employ Cubic Global Tracking Solutions to improve visibility, deter theft and detect post-delivery intrusions.
Cubic GTS initially collaborated with AAFES and APL to conduct a pilot early this summer, in which AAFES goods were shipped out of the United States. The increase in near real-time visibility and intrusion detection capabilities demonstrated by the successful pilot created logistics intelligence, which resulted in AAFES and APL moving forward with a large deployment of Cubic Global Tracking Solutions CTMS/GEN II SETID devices.
“By partnering with APL, we were able to help AAFES deter theft of high-value items in potential problem areas. We were also able to provide AAFES with asset visibility from the time their goods left the United States until their goods reached their final destination. We are pleased with the positive outcome of the APL/AAFES pilot and look forward to a long-term relationship to continue to provide logistics intelligence and intrusion detection, and on-going situational awareness,” said Mary Ann Wagner, President of Cubic Global Tracking Solutions.
