DHL Launches Enhanced Ocean Freight Technology Service

An integral part of the DHL Ocean Secure services are in-transit visibility and in-transit control.

DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist within Deutsche Post DHL enhances their tracking capabilities by launching a new global ocean freight service called Ocean Secure. The service is designed for customers shipping sensitive or high value cargo, specifically from the Life Sciences & Healthcare, Technology, Automotive and Consumer Goods industries. By means of Ocean Secure, DHL and customers can access real time tracking and temperature data at any given point and take remedial action if necessary.

“Ocean Secure is a significant leap forward regarding transparency along the supply chain and a further development of the ocean freight business itself. Knowing the exact whereabouts and condition of their goods will give our customers more planning flexibility“, says Andreas Boedeker, global head of Ocean Freight, DHL Global Forwarding.

An integral part of the DHL Ocean Secure services are in-transit visibility and in-transit control. Customers have access to real time information on the location and condition of their shipment at any given time via an online platform. In case of irregularities, a DHL team will intervene. Intervention points are all over the world, ensuring customers that their goods are taken care of quickly.

“Ocean Secure is part of our state-of-the-art cargo monitoring host-of-solutions. It is our response to the ever-increasing shipment event/ data transparency demands and security requirements in the logistics industry,” said Andreas Krueger, senior vice president of Ocean Freight for DHL Global Forwarding. “DHL Global Forwarding’s customers will have transparency along the end-to-end transport for precious cargo of any kind, which is critical to their business.”

The service is globally available and can be individualized by customers, depending on their needs. Customers can choose between container tracking along key milestones, monitoring of any opening of the container, or of temperature and humidity in the container leveraging the DHL SmartSensor GSM technology as well as real-time and in-transit information for all container parameters from remote areas and at sea through satellite transmission.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
