In response to the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation for the safety inspection of all air cargoes, this project develops a security monitoring and management solution based on video analysis, which enables an open-top flatbed trailer to provide secured transportation between two premises in which the safety inspection is conducted. It provides the shipping companies with an alternative to fixing a protective net on each air cargo pallet, enabling the industry to save time and operational cost.

It aims to strengthen the local logistics sector and related industries by providing a one-stop resource for applied research and technology transfer, and to reinforce cooperation between the industry and research institutes to bring about meaningful and significant impact on the industry and the community.
LSCM serves the industry by initiating research projects, contract research, as well as providing business matching opportunities, technology transfer and intellectual property commercialisation. LSCM initiates technology and knowledge transfer to the marketplace to promote industrial digitalisation, facilitate technology advancement and strengthen Hong Kong’s position as a leading logistics and commercial hub.
