Back Airside logistics - full visibility of your high-value goods

With critical cargo, minutes matters. Our airside solutions reduce damage, eliminate claims, increase in-transit visibility and ensure continued movement of your high-value cargo.

When you ship high-value products - whether highly sensitive capital equipment, valuable semiconductors, temperature-sensitive medicines, time-critical healthcare or aircraft on ground (AOG) parts - you want full control during every part of the journey.

Visibility to protect your goods

Every minute that your product is on the tarmac, is a minute of unwanted exposure. A significant proportion of temperature excursions, physical damage and loss occur at airports. Mishandling can cause delays, extra costs, and can even damage your reputation. To circumvent that, you need real-time data on the stability and condition of your shipments. Our on-site monitoring provides you with the visibility you need to protect your goods off the tarmac and through the airport.

To guarantee the integrity and compliance of your valuable goods throughout the shipping cycle, we offer 24/7/365 proactive monitoring and onsite inspection at critical control points from pick-up to delivery.
