A covert tracking solution from FreightWatch has been added to Qualcomm systems to offer in-transit visibility and security of loads, from individual pallets to truckloads. The service, available to carriers of high value and sensitive loads, delivers electronic freight security of cargo from its point of origin to its destination.
