United Cargo, one of the world’s largest belly carriers, announced it will accept two new tracking and monitoring devices on its entire mainline jet fleet of nearly 700 aircraft linking 381 airports across six continents.

The announced additions increase the number of cargo tracking and monitoring devices accepted by the carrier to 10.

Company spokesman, Tony Randgaard, told LM that this development will augment United’s advanced tracking and monitoring devices made by Cubic Global Tracking Solutions.

“All these devices deliver enhanced visibility over several of our key products,” he said, “including UASecure high value, QuickPak and EXP express.”

The new models accepted by United Cargo are the Moog Crossbow ILC2000 and the FedEx SenseAware 2000. Tracking and monitoring devices previously approved for acceptance by United Cargo include the following:

• 7PSolutions GL200-Tracker
• CartaSense U-Sensor/CCM
• Cubic Global Sentinel-5L
• Cubic Global Sentinel-5B
• Cubic Mesh Asset Tag RSU-3
• FedEx SenseAware 1000
• OnAsset SENTRY 400 FlightSafe
• U.S. Postal Inspection Service PT-200

“A growing number of cargo customers are seeking the increased visibility and enhanced monitoring options they gain when one of these devices is attached to or enclosed within their shipments,” said Robbie Anderson, President, United Cargo. “We are very pleased that, by working with the FAA and United’s Engineering experts, we can offer United’s customers more options for obtaining expanded tracking and shipment condition information when they transport cargo on our unparalleled worldwide network.”
