A Technological Improvement for Distribution Services

As more and more internet-based shopping takes place, so does the shipment of parcels. Expeditious delivery of these packages is of huge concern for both customer and vendor, but what about their condition upon arrival? Oftentimes packages are delivered and signed for without inspecting the contents for damage, thus requiring their return to sender. What if there was a way to be notified of damages before the package ever makes it to your door? Enter the DropTag, a new item from Cambridge Consultants that allows for real-time information on the condition of your package. This sensor monitors the events of the package as it travels to its destination, relaying information about any mistreatment it may have received.

The impact that a device like this will have on distribution services is quite significant. It would reduce time and money for transit and allow carriers to pinpoint what they could be doing better.
