CSafe launches real-time track and trace

Dayton, Ohio, USA: CSafe Global has fitted track and trace technology to its active air cargo containers.

CSafe partnered with DHL for a pilot shipment. The RKN containers were loaded with temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and flown from Puerto Rico to Kentucky and then transported by truck to Chicago.

CSafe integrated tracking devices into the RKN containers to provide real-time location, container temperature, ambient temperature, container tilt, container shock, door opening/closing events and humidity.

“This technology will bring the insight into shipment status and product condition that customers expect,” said Tom Weir, chief operating office, CSafe.

“The tracking devices continually collect data and deliver it in real-time to a cloud-based platform. From there customers and CSafe support staff will have 24/7 access to monitor every shipment and intervene if necessary. It’s this ability to intervene that will give CSafe customers additional peace of mind that their products will arrive in perfect condition for patients. Being first to market with this type of innovation demonstrates CSafe’s commitment to best-in-class products and continuous improvement across our product portfolio.”

CSafe will conduct additional commercial test shipments during the next few months and incorporate customer feedback into the systems. The platform will be device agnostic and able to track additional, commercially available telemetry devices.

Patricia Cole, global head temperature management solutions and same day, DHL Global Forwarding, said: “We at DHL appreciate partners who are dedicated to innovation that not only meets the current need, but goes well beyond to anticipate the future needs of our customers. This technology will revolutionize the cold chain and we are thrilled to be involved.”
