Seamless Real Time Visibility for Peace of Mind

At DB Schenker we handle all of our shipments with the upmost care, however we understand that the nature of certain commodities requires real time visibility. Whether you’re shipping valuable automotive parts prone to theft, prized haute-couture, or temperature sensitive healthcare products, you need to be along for the journey every step of the way. AirTrack provides increased real time visibility, seamless tracking, and constant monitoring of cargo conditions customized for your specific shipping needs, making it your eyes and ears within the supply chain.

Protect your most valuable shipments with our multi-use technology that can monitor GPS location, temperature, humidity, light exposure, tilt, or shock. We send you real-time push alerts the instant a package or container is opened, tilted, or experiences an unexpected telemetric deviation. Alerts enable us to be immediately notified of personalized deviations, allowing us to make instant decisions, such as sending immediate replacements for temperature sensitive healthcare shipments. The multiple telemetric data allows customers to mitigate the risk of theft or damage with a minimal environmental footprint.

Christian Hein, Head of Air Freight for Europe says, “From an environmental and sustainability perspective, I am happy to see that not only are we utilizing reusable devices but ensuring all of our one-time usage solutions have a recycling program in place.”

Our innovative solution was designed specifically for your changing needs. AirTrack provides full visibility of your supply chain and increased lead time transparency. At DB Schenker, we believe AirTrack offers the right solution for your most precious cargo.

Ship Smart – Ship Telemetric with Data-Driven Logistics for Increased Security

GPS tracking allows real-time tracking of your freight, helping you protect your valuable goods.

  • Improved risk management: follow your shipment’s journey from door-to-door using our IoT platform. Receive alerts for any deviations or delays.
  • “Invisible” solution: provides security without attracting any attention. If any issue should arise, the route details can assist with claim management and future risk mitigation.
  • Increased supply chain efficiency: lets you strategically improve your transit time. No matter where you stand, every step along the way.

If your shipments need specific temperature or moisture conditions, we have the right solution.

  • End to end temperature monitoring: receive an instant temperature deviation alert. Take immediate action and coordinate a replacement shipment if needed, so you’re not falling behind.
  • Continuous data logging: even when the shipment is out of coverage range, our data loggers keep working, so you know their transport conditions from start to finish.
  • Future mitigation: we can conduct a full analysis to mitigate risk of temperature and humidity fluctuations for future shipments.

Our tilt sensors help monitor the proper shipping and handling of motion sensitive goods like liquids, flowers, or heavy equipment.  

  • Visual alert: our tilt sensors display a visible alert when a shipment has been tipped on its side or completely upended, encouraging careful handling.
  • Custom configuration: alerts can be configured to immediately inform you if a shipment has been tipped or tilted or other deviations occur.
  • Keep liquids safe: our tilt sensors are ideal for liquid and chemical shipments that need to remain upright during transport.

Shock monitoring immediately lets you know if your shipments experience unexpected vibrations.

  • Shock sensor: our innovative shock sensors allow you to determine G-force impact, direction of impact, time and location.
  • Real time communication: know instantly when your shipment experiences a shock en route.
  • Asset protection: assets are at high risk of damage during transport. Our invaluable shock data is often required by customers when they are trucking their fragile freight, for example expensive machinery components in the air freight supply chain.

Some valuable shipments should never be opened during transit. Our light sensors immediately alert you when light deviates from expected.

  • Increased security: light sensors help detect when goods have been tampered with or truck doors opened en route.
  • Valuable goods deserve reliable sensors: protect your high value goods with our “invisible” light sensors.
  • Immediate alarm: trigged instantly when the light deviates from configured settings. This means you can take immediate action to protect your goods and provides you with valuable data for your claims management.
