Our Company

We are The Smart Container Company. An early-stage B2B SaaS startup disrupting the draught beer industry. Our product, KegTracker™, is an IoT device that instantly turns kegs and casks into SMART containers. Our technology creates transparency in the supply chain, removes bottlenecks, reduces waste, and enables a more sustainable and circular economy. 

Originally founded in New York City, The Smart Container Company is now headquartered in Cardiff, Wales with a satellite office in London, England. We are a diverse and talented team that supports a collaborative culture and delivers value through the application of technology, strategy, and process improvement. 

Our Product and Service

KegTracker™ is a disruptive, innovative, first-of-its-kind, patent pending, non-intrusive IoT device for asset tracking with condition monitoring of kegs. Our technology instantly connects existing containers to the internet and tracks location, volume, temperature, and movement for each asset. 

Leveraging data science and information collected from the containers, we empower breweries with real-time supply-chain reports and insights that drive a next-generation level of LEAN operational efficiency. Our services include: demand-driven production planning, keg and cask management, channel and contract monitoring, product recalls, route optimisation, stock and storage optimisation, improved reverse logistics, damage prevention, spoilage control, auto-replenishment, dynamic pricing, and retail waste management.
