DB Schenker Logistics has introduced a new system for tracking air and ocean freight consignments which it says offers customers more options and the opportunity to customise information.
Customers that use the DB SCHENKERsmartbox service can track ocean freight containers with their consignments on a map in real time, 24-hours a day, using GPS. They can also retrieve a variety of sensor parameters such as the temperature, humidity, G-force, inclination and light.
The new eNotification feature lets customers set up and save notifications in the DB Schenker system for specific trade lanes and ports or airports. Customers automatically receive the preset information by e-mail when the consignment reaches certain milestones or if the consignment’s parameters change.
