How Air Cargo Is Transforming The Logistics Sector?by Ankita Sehgal Freelance Blogger, Lives in New Delhi
In today’s world, air cargo has established itself as the lifeline of global business supply chains. E-commerce heavily depends upon timely delivery of their goods and here is where air cargo truly emerges as a winner. In this era, where everything is available online, customers highly value how fast their orders have been delivered and here is where air cargo helps businesses to keep up with customer’s demands.
The emergence of air cargo tracking in real time is a great relief for B2B businesses as timely deliveries are extremely critical in this case. As the tracking solutions continuously evolve on the back of technology, the requirement for more insights into the state of the cargo is definitely the need of the hour.
Air cargo is also helpful in monitoring critical items such as food and beverages, precious goods, electronics etc. This technology is agile, precise, and most importantly gives timely info about how far the package is reached.
Here is how air cargo is extremely helpful to the below-mentioned industry especially.
Food and Beverages
How do you ship food supplies over long distances without compromising their freshness? That is the question that supply chain managers working in the F&B industry seek to answer through effective monitoring of air cargo. With the installation of sensors and gauges that detect changes temperature, humidity, seals, and light exposure, regular updates are sent over to the supply chain management machines in real-time. This is particularly useful in correcting any discrepancies mid-air to ensure the safety of the shipment.
Art and precious goods
With millions of paintings being shipped across the world from dealers to the galleries, it is paramount that the dealers protect and preserve their products from damage during the transit. Paintings, for example, can get defiled in the event of changing temperatures or lighting. Therefore, real-time monitoring of such tangible parameters serves to ensure the dealers against damage.
High-end electronics are prone to theft during the transit. The implementation of light-detecting sensors, along with GPS, provides information about when and where the containers might have been opened. In the event of any theft or smuggling, the data received from the tracking and sensory devices can instantly establish its location and time.
With the rise of big data and analytics, many international logistics companies including TCI Express, realize that regular cargo tracking will not suffice. The insights received from thousands of shipments across a large time frame will help build more efficient supply chain and transit management technologies and help solve common problems associated with deliveries.
