Ultra Track launches worldwide


Cathay Pacific Cargo is introducing Ultra Track to its network, with a phased introduction at 29 ports across the globe. The multidimensional Ultra Track system uses Bluetooth technology to offer Cathay Pacific Cargo customers near real-time monitoring of shipments through the airport-to-airport leg of the air-cargo journey.

Ultra Track is suitable for pharmaceutical, perishable and other vulnerable shipments. Data-loggers record and transmit information to Bluetooth readers in the cargo terminal and on the airside ramp area. Data includes GPS location and temperature, and depending on the type of shipment, can be expanded to include light, humidity (for example, for cut-flower shipments), and also vibration; this is important for sensitive, specialist cargo such as stepper machines, the printing presses for microchips.

While customers can monitor their own shipments, shipments are also monitored 24/7 by Cathay Pacific Cargo’s OCC (Operations Control Centre), a dedicated team of cargo professionals who are able to instruct ramp and cargo terminal staff to make proactive or corrective interventions, if necessary. Customers can communicate with the OCC team directly, using live chat. (More on CENTRE STAGE: Moving in a digital world.)
