    Fast development of security technologies and solutions opens new prospects for supply chain security management, value-added services, and improvement of supply chain visibility and thus performance. This paper discusses the selection of sensors for container security solutions. For the assessment, the method called COAT is used. This method is basically a four stage process including customer dialogue, planning and modelling, analysis and synthesis. The final selection should be made through assessing the complete range of products and processes to be monitored, which may include low-cost solutions for low-value cargo containers and advanced solutions for high value containers, as well as specific assets. The primary solution for real time container monitoring is Container Security Device (CSD) which may comprise a quite different set of sensors, depending on the requirements of the supply chain
