    The Russian Glonass company voiced readiness to provide support in the global transportation of perishable goods.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Glonass joint-stock company is ready to provide logistical support in the international transportation of perishable goods, the company's deputy CEO, Andrei Zheregelya, told Sputnik Friday.

    “We are ready to carry out quality control dealing with the transportation of perishable goods, including international transportation,” Andrei Zheregelya said.

    “We have successfully conducted a pilot project which allows for perishable food products to be monitored during transportation. We plan to cooperate with international mobile network operators to carry out the international transportation of perishable goods,” Zheregelya added.

    Glonass May Provide Transportation Quality Control on North–South, Europe-China Corridors

    Glonass is open to cooperating with foreign partners to perform quality control checks on goods being transported via international transport corridors, Zheregelya told Sputnik.

    "We are ready to ensure transportation quality control on transport corridors including the International North-South Transport Corridor and the Western Europe-Western China International Transit Corridor to meet the interests of the foreign trade activities' participants."

    Glonass JSC is the operator of the ERA-GLONASS system, providing data to emergency responders via Russia's Global Navigation Satellite System. It is designed to reduce emergency service arrival times by quickly pin-pointing incident sites. The system calls an emergency service number automatically if the on-board transponder signals an accident.
