AirNet Cargo Charter Services, one of the leading express airlines transporting small packages, recently announced that it would allow customers to include environmental sensors and GPS tracking devices in their shipments. These tracking devices provide AirNet customers better peace of mind about their valuable cargo. It can be difficult to trust any airline with the task of keeping track of your shipment, particularly trusting that fragile, or perishable cargo will arrive at the location, and in the condition ordered. With GPS tracking devices equipped with environmental sensors, trust is removed from the equation, because customers can monitor every movement of their package.
“We provide superior service to customers who have very specific and specialized transportation needs. We recognize that our customers, who are often shipping high value cargo or temperature controlled cargo, require real time shipment visibility, tracking, and information about the condition of their package throughout the transportation cycle,” explained AirNet’s Marketing Manager Holly Stapleton. The GPS tracking device allows customers to monitor the movement of their cargo, ensuring that it arrives where and when it should. The environmental sensors provide all kinds of valuable information to AirNet customers, including vibration, light, shock, humidity, and temperature.
AirNet Cargo Charter Services is the only cargo service airline that allows customers to monitor their shipments with such detail. The company currently accepts the three most common GPS and environmental sensor devices, developed by GTX Corp., OnAsset Intelligence, and Moog Crossbow. “AirNet’s maintenance department and flight operations teams have evaluated, tested, and validated three different manufacturers’ devices across our aircraft fleet,” Tom Schaner confirmed, AirNet’s Vice President of Operations. “These devices are compliant with all current FAA regulations, because they are configured with an automatic radio suppression feature enabling them to automatically turn off upon take off and turn back on upon landing.”
