Packaging Business Reviews’ Innovation In Packaging
GWP Protective’s Tracker Case product sees off tough competition to win award
Packaging Business Review has declared GWP Protective’s fully trackable case, Tracker Case, the winner of the ‘Innovation in Packaging’ award.
The product was selected from four nominations shortlisted for the award, recognising GWP Protective’s idea of providing a trackable, foolproof packaging solution.
What is the Tracker Case System?
The Tracker Case is the world’s first fully trackable protective case, which offers the ability to geographically locate high value items in shipment, in real time, using GPS-based tracking technology – if necessary without the handler even knowing that the case is being tracked.
The state of the art tracking technology can be fully integrated into all of GWP Group’s protective cases during the design process so it is possible to produce a trackable case that has no evidence of the tracker visible.
The ability to track shipments covertly will appeal not only to those shipping high-value industrial equipment items, such as specialist manufacturers and rental companies but also to organisations shipping antiquities and fine art around the world such as museums and art galleries.
Challenges Faced By Tracker Case
One of the original people behind the Tracker Case idea, GWP Protective Sales Director Ian Heskins said:
As well as having to provide a high level of physical protection for high-value and sensitive equipment, we realised that GWP’s range of cases could potentially also provide protection against loss and theft. We also know that a number manufacturers and shippers of valuable items would welcome the ability to track their shipments, in real time and globally, via combined GPS and satellite communication-based technologies.
We are delighted to have won this award, as it reflects the innovation and hard work that we have put in to bring this product to market.

Easy to use online system for tracking cases
The online tracking software is accessible from any internet-connected computer and users can log in and view all their Tracker Cases simultaneously.
A visual indication of the route that the case has taken and a history of case movements can be provided to the user who can also be sent alerts if a case moves into or out of a pre-determined area by using the software’s geo-fencing feature.
The software can be utilised with a number of maps including Google Maps, Ordnance Survey, maritime charts and even Google Street View (so the user can see an image of the cases location).
