DHL shipment sensor

DHL has launched a SmartSensor GSM to monitor the transport of highly sensitive shipments for the pharmaceuticals industry.

The device measures temperature throughout the transport process, as well as humidity, shocks, brightness and location.

Data from the SmartSensor is accessible through a web-based tool, requiring no ancillary hardware.  The device is packed inside any DHL shipment and sends real-time data to the solution’s web portal.

Martin Wegner, vice president of DHL Solutions and Innovations, said: “Being able to control highly sensitive and valuable goods such as medications or other pharmaceutical goods from start to finish is invaluable.”
