Knowing where the goods are

Whether sensitive food, special screws or clothing: Goods get regularly lost, spoiled or damaged during transport. Searching for or replacing products costs companies time, money and nerves. The solution: networked trackers. These send signals when a delivery leaves its planned position after the start, an unexpected shock occurs or the temperature inside the delivery container changes. The issue: Especially with one-time deliveries, it does not pay for companies to return the trackers used for the delivery separately. In addition, the batteries of most trackers only last a few days. The low-cost tracker is different: the approximately ten centimetre long and three centimetre high tracker is compact and uses mobile radio technology to save energy. The batteries last up to five years. At the same time, the tracker is inexpensive - so it's worth using it for tracking one-off deliveries.

The main features

Deutsche Telekom's Low Cost Tracker
  • A variety of measured values:
    The Low Cost Tracker shows the location of a product, measures the ambient temperature and detects vibrations.


  • Exact localization:
    Using WLAN or mobile radio, the low-cost tracker localizes the location of the goods with an accuracy of up to 50 meters. Whether in a factory building or on the high seas.


  • Flexible data transmission:
    The transmission interval is freely configurable. Transmission takes place within a fixed time frame. The tracker also sends notifications of spontaneous events such as unplanned vibrations.


  • Simple to install:
    The Low Cost Tracker can be quickly and easily attached by screwing, riveting or gluing. The housing is waterproof and robust.

This is how the Low Cost Tracker works

The Low Cost Tracker can be localized via various networks such as Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), mobile radio or WLAN. By means of temperature measurement or shock detection, its signals are passed on to the IoT platform, which receives a message in the form of "new location after movement". Optionally, there is also the option of API integration in an existing backend / ERP system.
