Lufthansa celebrates new cargo temperature tracking technology milestone

New technological advances have made fresh produce logistics within the air cargo industry evolve significantly in recent years. Now, Lufthansa Cargo is taking advantage of them, as the cargo carrier recently succeeded in achieving a new milestone in monitoring and providing optimal transport for fresh produce.

Perishable goods have limited shelf life and contribute a specific portion to global waste problems because expired, spoilt, and rotten goods are typically not what the customers wish to receive. For cargo carriers, storing and transporting such precious freight can be challenging as it requires special expertise and detailed planning.

This is where technology comes in to make such situations more efficient. In partnership with Sensitech and Lobster Logistics Cloud, the German cargo carrier can use special sensors and GPS technology to identify the exact location and ambient temperature of fresh produce. The duo of information makes monitoring fresh produce in the air and on the ground more seamless.
