AT&T Cargo’s new asset tracking system is aimed at helping monitor land and air shipments. GPSenabled AT&T Cargo View with FlightSafe lets companies remotely track and monitor conditions – temperature, pressure, light, shock – of assets during land/air shipment in near real-time to help minimise risk of damage, loss, and theft.
Companies can use the solution to locate deliveries in near-real time and monitor the condition of valuable goods such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, sensitive documents, agricultural products and artwork.
FlightSafe, a feature included with AT&T Cargo View, makes it possible for a device to automatically transition to airplane mode so that it travels in an US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) compliant mode on the aircraft.
Major airlines that have approved AT&T Cargo View with FlightSafe devices for use on their aircraft include: Air Canada, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest Airlines, UPS and others.
Small and light-weight sensor-based devices are placed in shipments to continuously monitor the well-being of their valuable cargo. Cargo View monitors, records and communicates location using GPS, the service pinpoints the location of cargo as the aircraft lands so shippers can better support delivery and logistics scheduling.
