Behind the scenes access to critical shipments

March 6, 2014

What do haute couture clothes have in common with medical equipment and aircraft technology? Any guesses?

On the face of it very little. However, at a closer look you’ll see that all of the above objects are critical.

By critical shipments I mean high value, extremely time or temperature sensitive, or even irreplaceable objects – making it imperative that their location and temperature is known at all times.
When I speak to people working in fashion, healthcare or aviation they are interested in more than knowing if their shipment arrives on time. They want to know the whole story of the journey of their shipment as soon as it happens, whether it’s before pick-up, during the journey, or after delivery. And that’s why we’ve expanded SenseAware® into 15 markets across Europe.
With SenseAware it is possible to deliver near real-time information about shipments, allowing shippers to make proactive, critical decisions. The advanced multi-sensor device travels with the shipments to provide near real-time access to its current location and environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, exposure to light, barometric pressure and shock. Added to which its powerful web-based application was specifically designed to allow you to collaborate and share that information with your business partners.

The FedEx service gives you behind-the-scenes access into your shipment’s journey. So now, you can know the condition of your shipment, or whether it is on course for its estimated delivery time. And all in the safe knowledge that your business partners are up to date and in the loop.

Whether you are preparing for a fashion show, operation or building an aircraft, with SenseAware it’s certainly comforting to know you can keep track of your critical shipments more closely than ever before.
