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.
