Delta Cargo accepts GPS tracking

Delta Air Lines has announced a new service that allows cargo customers to use approved GPS tracking devices in express and premium products, in order to track high-value and time-sensitive shipments. This new service will be offered on all mainline flights in Delta’s global network, and will be expanded to include Delta Connection carrier flights in the near future. “With the addition of support for GPS tracking, Delta continues to offer our customers key products and services that complement our world-class network,” said Neel Shah, senior vice president and chief cargo officer, Delta Cargo. “With the option of greater visibility throughout the entire shipment life-cycle, we expect customer response to grow rapidly.” GPS tracking devices enhance Delta’s current product offering, providing customers the opportunity for greater visibility on shipments they deem highvalue, such as human organs, movie films, pharmaceuticals or technological prototypes, the carrier said, adding that GPS tracking supplements the significant investment Delta has made in warehouse and plane-side scanning. “It provides customers an additional layer of reliability and transparency in monitoring their shipment through every step of the shipment life-cycle.” While the tracking devices will be supplied by customers, Delta Cargo’s call centres will also be equipped with tracking technology to monitor the status of GPS-equipped shipments and closely coordinate with customers.
