Waste container track and trace
"Sensolus offers the finest business intelligence at a competitive price point - the trackers are rugged, and the solution is easily scalable and compatible with most (planning) software."

In the ever-changing world of waste management, more and more companies are looking to track & trace solutions for instant visibility of containers and insights into how their operations can be optimized. By attaching trackers to waste containers, container management has become streamlined and more automated, all by using digital technology and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This modern approach has become well-known for its ability to make things more efficient, make operations smoother, and increase security. Let’s take a closer look at how the partnership between Sensolus and Domat has been helping companies in the waste management industry with their track and trace solution for container management.

Complete Geographical Insight into Waste Containers

With Sensolus tracking technology, businesses gain a comprehensive view of the geographical locations of their waste containers. This information is invaluable for optimizing routes, predicting collection needs, and ensuring the most efficient use of resources. By harnessing location data, companies can strategically allocate their container fleet and minimize unnecessary transportation.

Uncover Unused or Forgotten Containers

One of the standout advantages of track and trace for waste containers, is its ability to identify containers that are underutilized or inadvertently left unattended. This feature helps organizations make informed decisions about repositioning or repurposing containers, reducing wastage and enhancing resource allocation.

Define Significant Areas with geolocation

The integration of geolocation capabilities takes track and trace to the next level. Businesses can define specific zones of interest, such as recycling centers, high-demand areas, or restricted zones. When a container enters or exits these predefined areas, instant alerts are generated. This ensures prompt action can be taken, maximizing operational efficiency and minimizing delays.

Collaboration between Sensolus and Partner Domat

In the pursuit of further digitizing waste container asset management, Sensolus has joined forces with their partner, Domat, in the recycling industry. This collaboration aims to bring about the next wave of innovation, propelling the recycling sector towards a more connected and data-driven future. Their prominent clientele within the industry stand testament to the numerous advantages of track and trace technology.

Testimonials from Satisfied Users

Here’s a selection of comments from contented users who have reaped the benefits of track and trace:

A&M Recycling

We always know where our containers are located, and which ones are in stock and ready to be deployed. As soon as containers are picked up or if the tracker is removed, we receive a notification, allowing us to keep track of the outstanding fleet and movements.

The software is very user-friendly, and the ability to use geozones provides us with an additional advantage in capturing project locations in the system. This helps us control the turnover of container swaps and take necessary actions toward our clients when needed.

The investment costs and subscription fees are competitively priced. All in all, it is certainly an added value to equip our container fleet with Sensolus trackers, with our partner Domat in Schiedam playing an important role in this decision.

Rob den Heijer


Our experience: We have been working with Sensolus for some time now to monitor our container fleet. It has been a positive experience and is becoming more familiar to us. Searching for a specific container is efficient, allowing for quicker adjustments to our planning. Even handling challenging swap locations due to the lack of an address has been simplified through Sensolus, as you can see the container on the map (geozones). The notifications for movement outside of the set time blocks are helpful for theft prevention.

All in all, it’s been a good choice, both operationally and financially, considering the size of our container fleet and the investments made. When you have a large fleet of containers and have made significant investments, you want 100% visibility into whether you still own all the purchased containers and where they might be located.

Due to significant growth in our company, it became challenging to keep up with our container service. Sensolus provides us with an excellent overview of where our containers are located throughout the Netherlands. With just one press of a button in the app, you have the overview at your fingertips. It’s a fantastic system for us and also serves as a deterrent against theft.

As the industry embraces these innovations, the future of waste container management looks promising, promising a greener and more connected world.
