New tracking technology for Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand (ANZ) is rolling out new tracking technology which has been designed and manufactured in its home country.
Working together with Core Transport Technologies, the airline is currently installing more than 5,500 Bluetooth tags on its cargo containers, pallets and ULDs, as well as more than 100 readers at the 29 airports around the world that receive ANZ cargo services. When a tagged item passes the reader it automatically updates an online application providing real time information to the airline's team.
Air New Zealand Cargo plays an important role in growing its country's high value exports, and processing most of its air freighted imports.
The airline operates an average of 3,566 cargo flights per week and exports a total of 42,000 t of goods from New Zealand per annum. (ah)
