DHL Freight launches tracking system

Bonn, Germany: DHL Freight’s new Active Tracing system, designed to allow customers to track shipments across Europe, is particularly beneficial for companies who transport time-sensitive, temperature-controlled or premium goods such as in the technology and pharmaceutical sectors, says the company.

Customers can now receive up to 30 status updates from pick-up to delivery. This information can be accessed remotely via iPhone and Android apps, designed especially for small and medium-sized businesses.

Customers can also look up shipping histories for the past six months and create personalised reports.

Henning Goldmann, chief information officer of DHL Freight, says:”With the Active Tracing apps we also respond to an ever increasing need for mobile and flexible services – taking the customer experience with our track and trace service to the next level of convenience and thereby simplifying their lives.”
