I realize the photo isn't from New York but this goes through there.  Noticed this little box on the majority of the Schneider containers.  Can someone identify it please.

I wonder if this is some sort of tracking device so that Schneider can track whereabouts of each trailer/container?
 
Having said that, this is only speculation on my part.
