Airport wise Domestic Cargo Performance at Indian Airports in September 2013
Lufthansa Cargo recently introduced new tracking facilities for its customers to be kept fully informed of the location of their shipment. Through the use of GSM transponders, the customers will now be able to check online where their consignment is at all times.
“With this service, Lufthansa Cargo is offering its customers maximum transparency and precise, real-time consignment tracking,” said Lufthansa sources.
The Lufthansa sources also asserted that GSM mobile technology will be used to transmit the data. The tracking devices have been specifically designed for use on board aircraft and are the first officially certified consignment trackers. The transmitters will switch off automatically during flight.
Lufthansa Cargo will provide the required number of devices, which weigh just 50 grams. The shipper can place a tracker in any consignment and simply return the device by post after the goods have been transported.
“By using GSM technology, we are offering our customers genuine added value and increased transparency throughout the entire transport chain,” said Thilo Schäfer, Vice President Global Handling Management, Lufthansa Cargo. He also maintained that with its ease of application, the new offering will appeal to all air freight customers, big and small.
