If you are in an industry that needs to transport high value, fragile and time sensitive packages, then more help is at hand.

FedEx Express has just launched its SenseAware service in Ireland (and Europe).

SenseAware is an online application that monitors a multi-sensor device in the package that is being shipped. This means the package is monitored in real-time in terms of its location, temperature, light exposure, relative humidity, shock and barometric pressure.

FedEx Express says the service is aimed at “highly valuable or time-sensitive products from industries like aerospace, manufacturing, oil and gas, healthcare and fashion”.
