There is nothing worse than getting a parcel only to find that the box is dented and contents have been damaged. This is especially serious if nobody owns up to being responsible for the damage. This is where Drop Tag from Cambridge Consultants would come in handy, this device will fit into the palm of your hand, but when placed inside a parcel it can monitor how it is handled and pin point the exact time when the damage was done. If there is one thing that will ensure the safe delivery of parcel, Drop Tag could be the answer.
According to the Drop Tag press release, this is how the system works;
DropTag can be remotely interrogated at any stage of the delivery process – with a maximum range of about 50m indoors. Therefore, as a parcel is moved around a warehouse or carried in the back of a van, smart handsets could remotely and automatically check the package at each stage of its journey – reporting the status back to headquarters and so allowing an early proactive response to any incident.
