CHAMP project “Cargo Connectivity” is nearing its final stage

CHAMP's Nicholas Xenocostas chats with Cargoforwarder Global to discuss the development of guaranteeing users full visibility of air freight along the entire supply chain.

CHAMP’s vision is to have cargo connected continuously and connected bi-directionally: receiving and transmitting. We believe this will open new service possibilities for the industry. For example, CHAMP has been working with its partners on health monitoring of animals being transported including during the flight phase. The initial application that CHAMP is creating a Proof of Concept (POC) for is to monitor the vital signs of horses allowing on-board grooms to be notified of any anomalies. As the aircraft become “connected”, then this information will also be sent to the various stakeholders on the ground. Such advanced technology can be used as well in monitoring ULDs transporting Pharma and perishables. This will only become more ubiquitous in the future.
