American Airlines Cargo, a division of Fort Worth-based American Airlines, has begun offering a one-time use program with FlightSafe, a GPS and sensor-based tracking device for air cargo shipments.
The program, provided in partnership with OnAsset Intelligence, allows shippers, freight forwarders and couriers to work directly with American Airlines Cargo to add tracking devices to shipments and monitor packages from point of origin to destination.
The tracking device monitors temperature, pressure, shock, location and vibration and can be added to American’s U.S. domestic and international shipments beginning May 7.
“This program will be a great addition to our services, giving customers real-time visibility into their shipments,” said Roger Samways, managing director of cargo sales, commenting in a news release.
Sharing that perspective was OnAsset.
“We are excited to be part of American Airline Cargo’s service innovations,” said Adam Crossno, president and CEO of OnAsset Intelligence. “Real-time tracking and device logistics are a powerful combination packaged as a single solution.”
As part of the program, American will supply the tracking device and include all logistics services for a single fee. Customers will be able to visit a provided link to view the location, location history and all sensor data collected during transit.
