“If a part is coming from a warehouse that's 80 miles from the airport, the AOG department can 'geofence' the route and get an alert if the truck goes off route,” says Chris Swearingen, marketing manager for the SenseAware solution. “They can receive an alert when it arrives at the airport and know that it arrives at the right location. If a mechanic doesn't receive the part, he can look on his screen and find out it was delivered to the other side of the warehouse and go get it.”
SenseAware is carrier-agnostic and enables AOG planners to access a dashboard on their computer to track all of their shipments in real time.
“We're enabling customers to monitor high-value shipments and make real-time decisions in their supply chains that they couldn't in the past,” says Swearingen. “Our CEO said way back in 1978 that the information about a package was as important as the package itself. This is taking logistics to that next level.”
