Chapman Freeborn introduces real-time tracking for on board courier shipments

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has further strengthened its specialist On Board Courier (OBC) product with the introduction of a new online tool for tracking shipments globally.

In addition to receiving regular updates directly from the company’s Cologne-based OBC team, clients can now log in and view real-time updates on the status of their cargo – wherever it is in the world.

Carsten Volk, Chapman Freeborn’s global product manager for OBC services, said:

Our innovative tracking tool has been developed in cooperation with Awery Airline Solutions and affords clients the opportunity to follow urgent OBC shipments online – from the sender to the recipient, detailing every arrival and departure movement in between. 

The technology helps to make our high quality and safe transportation service even more transparent for the customer.”

Moreover, the entire process is now fully trackable, with clients receiving continuous updates regarding their shipment’s status directly from the OBC team, as well as via the new online tracking tool.
