American Airlines Cargo announced it will begin offering a onetime use program with FlightSafe. The program, delivered in partnership with OnAsset Intelligence, allows shippers, freight forwarders and couriers to work directly with American Airlines Cargo to add a tracking device to a shipment and monitor the package from point of origin to destination.
The tracking device, which monitors temperature, pressure, shock, location and vibration, can be added to U.S. domestic and international shipments on American beginning May 7. It is available for use with all of American’s products—Expedite, Confirmed and PPS—and is ideal for customers who are shipping time-critical, high-value and temperature-sensitive cargo.
As part of the program, American will supply the tracking device and will 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.
