GTX Corp has announced the approval of a custom designed GPS tracking device for use on AirNet and Cargolux. The custom configured device will be made available as an add-on service exclusively to customers of MNX, a premium global provider of expedited transportation and logistics services, to provide a new level of visibility and control for high value and mission critical shipments.

"We have been working diligently with AirNet and Cargolux to gain the necessary approvals to bring this one-of-a-kind offering to market. We are very pleased to see this day finally come to fruition," said Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp Chairman and CEO.

"Over the next few weeks we will work closely with the MNX team to formulate a domestic and international deployment strategy to introduce this offering to MNX customers around the world."

Designed for customers that ship high value, time or temperature sensitive materials, the technology is particularly well-suited for customers in the life sciences industry.

The GPS solution will bring extra security to the most sensitive shipments, including the transportation of items such as organs, blood, tissue, medications, clinical trial samples and medical devices.

"The GTX Corp tracking platform gives us the ability to better identify and resolve any unforeseen challenges throughout the entire transport and gives our customers added confidence and peace of mind that their shipment is secure at every step," said Scott Cannon, MNX CEO.

"By providing our clients with real-time tracking of their shipments, MNX will offer an unmatched layer of service, security, temperature integrity and reliability." The GPS device transmits the latitude and longitude, speed, bearing, altitude and temperature of the plane or vehicle carrying the shipment.

The device and GTX platform also provide an easy-to-use customer interface with live shipment tracking and geo-fencing capabilities, allowing customers to know exactly when their mission critical shipments depart and arrive in key destinations.

The GTX device is small and light weight (comparable to the size of a standard garage door opener), making it easy to insert in even the smallest packages.

"We realize the capability to track valuable shipments with such detail is especially important to the life sciences industry, especially as this industry continues to expand so rapidly," said Bertagna.

AirNet, a leading domestic specialty cargo airline specializing in life sciences transportation, and Cargolux, one of the leading scheduled all-cargo airlines, were among the first airlines to conduct a thorough testing process to certify the GTX device, while MNX and GTX continue collaborating to expand the use of the offering to other partner airlines.
