East Coast Diversified Corp. announced that it has shipped LogiBoxx oil tanker monitoring products to Ghanian partner MultiPlant through East Coast’s subsidiary EarthSearch Communications. This is being done as part of the Unified Petroleum Price Fund program, under which the Ghanian government compensates oil companies that deliver petroleum to parts of Ghana that are typically deemed unrealistically expensive to deliver to.
EarthSearch, based in Atlanta, produces the LogiBoxx system, which utilizes GPS and RFID technologies together with GATIS middleware to form the LogiBoxx Certified Solution product. This product assists in supply chain, logistics and asset management industries. EarthSearch also offers a line of RFID products and solutions.
EarthSearch’s LogiBoxx systems monitor the opening and closing of fuel spigots, fuel levels and the physical location of the tanker using Google Earth APIs, which can alert the company to fraudulent claims for payment by oil distributors. It also assists with distributors filing payment claims with the Ghanian government. Destinations for tankers can be programmed into LogiBoxx, which will be alerted if any discrepancies are detected.
William Johnson, Global Operations Manager for ECDC, said, “We are prepared and ready to support customers globally including this and many other projects currently ongoing.”
