Kuehne + Nagel pioneers wireless sensors for temp-controlled air freight

2012 03 07

THE Kuehne + Nagel group will begin deploying newly developed active wireless sensors that are designed to record and transmit the temperature of pharmaceutical airfreight shipments along the entire supply chain.

The use of active wireless sensors is mainly intended for pharmaceutical products. Generally, security rules prohibit the active use of mobile sensors during the air transport. However, together with a number of airline partners, the Swiss logistics group thoroughly tested low-emission devices which stay active during the flight to constantly measure and report the temperature, practically, in real-time.

To guarantee temperature visibility from pick-up to delivery, warehouses and logistics facilities both belonging to the company and its airline partners will be equipped with transmitting technology. The same applies to pre-and-on-carriage vehicles. These temperature measurements will be accessible to shippers when they login to the company website.

"By introducing this service we are setting new, quite revolutionary standards in the cold chain air freight market and we will extend the offering step by step to other industry groups," said Tim Scharwath, executive vice president, group air logistics.The opening of the Cork facility creates five positions adding to its 45-strong staff at Dublin and Shannon airports.
