Delta Cargo launches new pet transport strategy
Delta Cargo has entered into an exclusive long-term partnership with Care Pod, a pet technology start-up that has developed a standard of safety and care for pet air travel.
With a new range of smart products and services, Care Pod aims to help Delta better carry and monitor pets throughout the network, with real-time updates for customers. This is alongside the recent introduction of a staff veterinarian to the cargo team. The US airline also has specially trained ground handlers who take care of pets at every step of their journey
On top of that, Delta has temperature-controlled holding areas and vehicles in numerous locations, overnight kennelling services and real-time GPS tracking service for pet shipments, with the new cargo control centre in Atlanta GA (USA), providing 24/7/365 visibility into all shipments, including pets.
