Delta to track cargo movement in real time

[ March 6, 2018   //   ]

Delta says it will soon become the first US passenger airline to provide, real-time tracking for cargo unit load devices (ULDs). The technology will replace manual tracking for all shipping containers, while real-time tracking information will also allow Delta’s cargo control center to more accurately monitor and reroute shipments that are delayed by, for example, inclement weather. When implemented, the new tracking system will also enable Delta to produce electronic unit control receipts, making Delta the first airline to offer a fully automated solution for customer transactions.
