1 and 2, the container tracking apparatus 40 comprises a grouping unit 41, the designation unit 43 and the transmission management unit 45 may further include a collecting part (47). Grouping unit 41 to group Chemistry LOT the container (20) loaded in the vehicle 10 by the Merchant. Designation unit 43 includes a master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) from the container (20) included in each LOT and slave container (S11, S12, ..., S1n) (S21, S22, ..., S2n) ... Designates the (Sn1, Sn2, ..., Snn). And the container information and slave transmission management unit 45 doedoe each having a container of (20), LOT-specific master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) are included in the master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) container (S11, S12, ..., S1n) (S21, S22, ..., S2n) ... A container information collected from (Sn1, Sn2, ..., Snn) and transmits the processing by the Merchant is the desired destination.

The grouping unit 41 performs a grouping based on the owner information included in the information collected from the container the container (20). In addition, the grouping unit 41 to the grouped by container shippers; The Chemistry of LOT (21,23, ..., 2m m is odd). In addition, it is possible to perform a large number of cases the grouping unit 41 is the containers (21,23, ..., 2m) grouped by the Merchant, the sub-container (21,23, ..., 2m) grouped by again grouping the Merchant. For example if the number of containers in the individual A shipper 100, grouping unit 41 performs a sub-group the container 100 back to 10 units. The reason for performing a sub-grouping, and performs short-range one master container, and a sub-groupings according to the short-range communication method is used, because the number of slaves container is limited to communication according to the communication scheme.

Designation section 43 of the container contains each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) from one of a master container, there is as specified in (M1, M2, ..., Mn), the master container in the following manner: (M1, M2, ..., Mn can be specified). For example, if unit 43 is in a container included in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) in a communication strength is greater than the threshold value container in the master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) may be specified. The container contained in the LOT if (21,23, ..., 2m) is sub-grouping can be designated the master container corresponding to the number of sub-groupings.

Or the designation unit 43 is the master, based on the information as to whether the master container included in the information collected from the container 20, the container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) may be specified.

Or designation section 43 can designate with the container incorporated in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) connected to the first container from the container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn).

Or specifying unit 43 may specify the containers included in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) at random from the container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn).

Or if unit 43 is in a container included in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) in a relatively large battery remaining amount is the container tracking device 40 to the container master container (M1, M2, comprising a ... can be designated as Mn).

Or specifying unit 43 may specify the containers included in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) of the transport distance of the master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) in a shorter container. The designation unit 43 is in a container included in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) from the largest container of the battery power level when the container relative to the transport distance short multiple individual container tracking apparatus 40 master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) may be specified. Further designation section 43 of the container contains each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) transport distance is short when plural individual container, the container is a plurality of the maximum intensity communication master container (M1 of, M2 of ... can be designated as Mn).

Thus, if unit 43 is a master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn), a specified time, with the container incorporated in each LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) in a master container is relatively short transport distance from the container by specifying the (M1, M2, ..., Mn), it is advantageous for reducing battery consumption of a container tracking unit 40 installed in the container. For example, vehicle 10 is starting the Busan via China, when they transport the containers (20) in Singapore, as compared to the container 20 to China, if the container 20 is thin in Singapore for a longer period you should use a container tracking system (40). Thus the container comprises a LOT (21,23, ..., 2m) in a container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn), a specified time, the transport distance is short i.e., the master from the container 20 to be transported in a container China by specifying the (M1, M2, ..., Mn), a relatively long transport distance that is, it is possible to reduce battery consumption of a container tracking apparatus 40 of the container to go to Singapore 20. Thus when specifying a master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) by LOT, first master container from the container (20) is transported away to go to the short China (M1, M2, ..., Mn) for communications by specifying a , via China master container from the container again going to go to Singapore Singapore when (20) (M1, M2, ..., Mn) and performs communication by specifying.

In addition to the containers containing the LOT (21,23, ..., 2m), a relatively large battery remaining amount is the container 20 in the transport distance when the plural individual small container 20, the container tracking device 40 from the master by specifying the container (M1, M2, ..., Mn), it is possible to suppress the problems such as poor communication due to a low battery level of the container tracking device 40.

Meanwhile, when the vehicle 10 is designated the master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) in is removed from the vehicle 10 through the Trans-like, support unit 43 is in a container included in each LOT (21,23 , ..., 2m) master container by the above-described manner from the (M1, M2, ..., redirects the Mn).

Further designation unit 43 can change the container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn) after a certain time or periodically for battery management.

Collection unit 47 collects a container information including the environment information, owner information of the container 20, information, the goods are stored for each of the loaded goods on the container (20). Collection portion 47 provides the container information, collected by the transfer management unit 45.

And the container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn) the transmission management unit 45 is slave container (S11, S12, ..., S1n) (S21, S22, ..., S2n) includes a ... And stores the information from the collecting container (Sn1, Sn2, ..., Snn). Master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) the transmission management unit 45 includes a master container (M1, M2, ..., Mn) Containers and slave container (S11, S12, ..., S1n) of (S21, S22 included in the , ..., S2n) ... And it transmits the (Sn1, Sn2, ..., Snn) Merchant stores processed by the desired destination, or the container information, the information output device 50 is collected from.

The slave container (S11, S12, ..., S1n) (S21, S22, ..., S2n) ... (Sn1, Sn2, ..., Snn) transmission management unit provided in the unit 45 and transmits its information to a container, the container master (M1, M2, ..., Mn) to which it belongs.
