DHL launches ocean freight tracking
DHL Global Forwarding has enhanced its tracking capabilities by launching a new global ocean freight service called Ocean Secure. The service is designed for customers shipping sensitive or high value cargo, specifically from the life sciences and healthcare, technology, automotive, and consumer goods industries. By means of Ocean Secure, DHL and customers can access real time tracking and temperature data at any given point and take remedial action if necessary. “Ocean Secure is a significant leap forward regarding transparency along the supply chain and a further development of the ocean freight business itself. Knowing the exact whereabouts and condition of their goods will give our customers more planning flexibility,“says Andreas Boedeker, global head of ocean freight, DHL Global Forwarding.
An integral part of the DHL Ocean Secure services are in-transit visibility and in-transit control. Customers have access to real time information on the location and condition of their shipment at any given time via an online platform. In case of irregularities, a DHL team will intervene.
The service is globally available and can be individualised by customers, depending on their needs.
