OnAsset Intelligence provides solutions to track and monitor critical cargo throughout its journey. It works to constantly deliver location, condition and security information relating to high-value shipments, freight and equipment, in real time.

A global leader in flexible and cost-effective supply chain tracking solutions, OnAsset Intelligence gives complete and secure supply chain visibility for all modes of transportation at the touch of a button.

In 2018, in a first for the air transport industry, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT collaborated with OnAsset Intelligence to achieve its aircraft Internet of Things (IoT) project specifically for the air freight sector.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT and OnAsset Intelligence developed the initiative on behalf of two pioneering cargo carriers, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) and CargoLogicAir (CLA), and demonstrated it at the 2018 Farnborough Air Show.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s IoT platform enables ABC and CLA to monitor the journey of sensitive pharmaceutical cargo inflight, in real time. Its specific IoT solution for ABC and CLA works by collecting IoT data provided by OnAsset Intelligence, along the course of a flight.

This OnAsset Intelligence data is fed through SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s onboard IoT edge gateway. The data can then be sent, securely, to SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s ground data management and dispatch platform, built to monitor the inflight status of carriers’ goods.

No other solutions on the market provide inflight cargo sensing and freight condition visibility, as perishable and temperature-sensitive goods can only be monitored on the ground.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s collaboration with OnAsset Intelligence for AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir therefore represents a shift in technological intelligence, enabling actions or decisions to be made inflight to help optimize performance.

“With genuine Internet of Things capabilities, enabled for us onboard by SITA FOR AIRCRAFT, our digital pharma service is born, ensuring we can provide the best transportation conditions inflight for customers’ invaluable cargo” – Sergey Lazarev, General Director, AirBridgeCargo Airlines
