SILICON VALLEY, Calif. (PRWEB) November 12, 2020
Roambee Corporation, a leader in on-demand logistics visibility won the Compass Intelligence IoT Asset Management award for its recent product release: the BeeSense Air, which makes it possible for any actor in the air cargo supply chain to get first-hand visibility at a package level.
The BeeSense Air is a Non-Dangerous Goods (Non-DG), live sensor technology that is purpose-built to monitor the location and condition of air shipments first hand, from door to door. It works without relying on anyone in the chain of custody and without encountering restrictions on sensors imposed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) arising from the use of Lithium batteries.
The ability to monitor air cargo across all legs of its journey is critical to ensure on-time, in-full (OTIF) deliveries, especially at a time when industries such as Pharma, Food, Consumer Electronics, and eCommerce are tackling new logistics challenges brought about from air freight capacity reduction. This sensor technology is also being adopted swiftly by the COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers and distributors to ensure that clinical trials verifiably reach their target locations on time and intact, pre-empting the impact of environmental changes on vaccine stability.
The Non-Dangerous Goods (Non-DG) BeeSense Air technology generates first-hand visibility signals, irrespective of whether the package is in the hands of the shipper, at the airport, or on its last-mile journey. These signals help detect and predict critical logistics anomalies, such as if a package is segregated from the lot, if it missed loading the flight, or if it took-off on the wrong flight. You will also be alerted if the consignment is handled incorrectly, if it is facing a temperature or humidity excursion in airport storage or on the tarmac, and if the estimated time of arrival (ETA) is impacted.
Vidya Subramanian, Roambee’s Vice President of Products said, “Lithium-Ion batteries, the same variant used in mobile phones that recently caused issues on some flights a few years ago, is a critical component that powers live IoT sensors through a multimodal air cargo journey. Most IoT sensors are thus labelled as Dangerous Goods (DG) on flights and restricted in volume per Airway Bill (AWB). The BeeSense Air, which is a Non-DG, flight-safe, wire-free sensor uses both cloud and edge data to communicate only when required, optimizing its Non-Lithium batteries to last the journey.”
Subramanian further added, “You can safely monitor every package within an AWB now! When combined with Roambee’s Honeycomb Visibility platform and AI-enabled insights & foresights, manufacturers, freight forwarders, and airlines alike can improve logistics efficiency and proactively achieve quality control without relying on any supply chain actor for traceability – truly democratizing air cargo visibility.”
