Lufthansa Cargo has launched its new optional tracking service, liveSensor. The tracker will allow cargo airline customers to keep an eye on shipments over the course of an entire route, in real time. liveSensor will also give information on whether or not transport conditions agreed upon are being complied with, by measuring factors such as temperature, humidity, pressure, alignment and vibration. Light sensors will also be used to determine whether a shipment has been opened, which will serve as a protection against theft.
Lufthansa’s new portal, which is linked to the tracking device, will allow customers to apply user-defined settings, such as the modality of status messages or adjustments to temperature ranges. Virtual geographic boundaries, or geofences, can also be defined. This means that specific information is available in the event of damage or loss to a shipment.
liveSensor is currently available for booking in 13 European countries as well as in the USA and will gradually be rolled out worldwide.
