About FedEx SenseAwareSM devices

SenseAware advanced monitoring uses a multi-sensor device that collects real-time data for critical shipments from the moment they’re packed and picked up to the time they’re delivered — and even beyond.

Typically placed inside packages, pallets, trailers, and warehouses, the device monitors items it’s traveling with and transmits the data via wireless communication to an online application for tracking and analysis. During air travel, SenseAware records data and information, and reports those upon landing.

SenseAware uses a global positioning system (GPS) and location-based services (LBS) provided by cell tower proximity to collect its location data, and an integrated cellphone to communicate data collected during shipments or in a static environment.
