Delta Air Lines to Offer GPS Tracking and Tracing
Delta Air Lines has inked an exclusive marketing agreement with OnAsset Intelligence, a provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless asset tracking solutions, enabling Delta Cargo customers to view GPS location information on deltacargo.com, Delta reported.
Users will be able to track and trace cargo in transit across the Delta and Delta Connection fleet, which operates more than 5000 daily flights to more than 340 destinations, 61 countries and six continents. Cargo status can be viewed on a customized Web page.
“Our agreement with OnAsset is a huge boost for Delta customers, who move high value cargo, to allow them to see where there shipment is every step of the way,” said Neel Shah, Delta’s senior vice president and chief cargo officer, in a press release. “Offering GPS customers our complete network and combining active and passive tracking data into a single location will be a considerable advantage for their critical shipment needs.”
According to Delta, it is the first airline to receive FAA approval for the SENTRY 400 FlightSafe device on all Mainline and Connection flights, which allow shippers critical visibility of sensitive shipments in remote and rural locations. Delta is working with OnAsset to enable GPS tracking on other shipments such as pets as cargo, as well as specialty items like golf bags, hunting and fishing gear, and jewelry cases.
“We are pleased to announce our relationship with Delta,” added Adam Crossno, president and chief executive officer for OnAsset Intelligence, in the press release. “Closing visibility gaps with innovative solutions will enhance the supply chain significantly. We are proud to be a part of Delta’s plans for today and in the future.”
