DB Schenker Logistics Debuts Advanced Air and Ocean Tracking Service

DB Schenker Logistics has developed a new tool for monitoring air and ocean freight consignments.

The Advanced Air and Ocean Tracking service includes a quick-search feature, allowing customers to deploy special filters and references to customize information, and receive automatic notifications from the system. Users of the DB Schenker smartbox service can track ocean freight containers with their consignments on a map in real time, 24 hours a day, through the Global Positioning System. They can also retrieve a variety of sensor parameters, such as temperature, humidity, G-force, inclination and light. A new eNotification feature allows customers to set up and save notifications in the DB Schenker system for specific trade lanes, and ports or airports. Users automatically receive the present information by e-mail when the consignment reaches certain milestones, or if the consignment's parameters change.
