Finnair Cargo has introduced its new monitoring tool for airfreight, called “Cargo Eye,” which as an internet of things (IoT) product that offers real-time tracking and monitoring services.
The Finnish airline unveiled the product as part of its larger cargo management platform at yesterday’s Slush start-up conference in Helsinki. Cargo Eye integrates multiple data sources, transactional enterprise resource planning (ERP) data and information from IoT sensors to provide a visual layout for air cargo management through Finnair’s new Cargo Control Center.
Cargo Eye receives information from multiple data systems, including:
- Finnair’s cargo management ERP system SkyChain, which provides booking data and similar information
- Sensire sensors, which give location, temperature and humidity data for shipments
- KaltIoT trackers, which monitor location and temperatures of shipments during ground transport.
Finnair Cargo’s managing director Janne Tarvainen touted the benefits of Cargo Eye at Slush, adding that Finnair Cargo is on the lookout for start-up partners to collaborate on developing other products “for IoT-enabled transformation.”
