Join MNX, United Airlines, and Kentucky Space as they discuss how they use sensor-based logistics technology to increase their visibility into global supply chains, and monitor important environmental conditions inside critical packages. The session will be moderated by Chris Swearingen, marketing manager for SenseAware powered by FedEx.

SenseAware is an advanced multi-sensor device combined with a powerful web-based application that provides companies near real-time visibility into critical shipments’ locations and environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity, exposure to light, shock, and barometric pressure. The SenseAware user interface is constantly evolving to meet customers’ needs for near real-time access to vital statistics, all backed by the power of the FedEx network.
