FedEx Express has expanded its SenseAware service to Hong Kong. The service uses a shipment tracking technology to provide customers better control of their supply chain and improved connection to critical and time-sensitive shipments in near real-time.
The multi-sensor device is integrated with a web-based application to enable access to vital statistics of a shipment while still in transit, including exact location, precise temperature readings, relative humidity, and barometric pressure.
It also alerts clients when the shipment has been opened or exposed to light.
The SenseAware smart tracking service is targeted at the health-care, life sciences, aerospace, auction, arts, and financial sectors.
Initially available in the United States only, the service expanded to Australia, Singapore, Canada, and the United Kingdom in December 2012. The service is also available on a number of air and ground transportation carriers.
