Tech firms to offer sensitive shipment service for US carrier

14 / 02 / 2018

Tech company CalAmp has signed a partnership with software-as-a-service provider CargoSense to deliver information on high-value, sensitive air cargo for “one of the world's largest global airlines headquartered in the US.”

The platform will use data collected from CalAmp's SC1000 and SC1100  telematics gateways and smart sensor tags that monitor location, temperature, humidity, shock, light and vibration for pharmaceuticals, wine, electronics, live freight and perishables shipments that require environmental monitoring.

The system will then analyse the aggregated data to detect critical environmental conditions and movement patterns from one flight segment to the next, tom give the airline greater insight into shipment processes and to help meet mandatory reporting requirements for high-value cargo.

Senior vice president and general manager of CalAmp's Software and Subscription Services business, Paul Washicko, said: "We are pioneering an effective and efficient way of maintaining control and monitoring the condition of high-value cargo with detailed real-time environmental data to optimize safe transport from departure to arrival."

CargoSense chief executive, Richard Kilmer, added:  "Through our partnership with CalAmp, the global airline will gain real-time insights into the exact status of all its cargo through our comprehensive logistics solution that is unparalleled in transport monitoring today."
