Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) is offering customers the option of using active tracking devices on its flights.
The airline says this will enable them to track their shipments more precisely, whenever and however it suits them.
Customers place the tracking devices in their shipment before acceptance and take them out again after delivery at the final destination.
The devices are capable of sending data through telecom networks and providing GPS location and sensor data with information including temperature, humidity, shock/tilt and light.
AFKLMP senior vice president for sales and distribution, Christophe Boucher says: “Our aim is to support our customers in using end-to-end tracking solutions throughout the journey of their shipment. This forms part of our digital journey, expressed in the services we wish to offer our customers.”
