DHL Global Forwarding now offers customers a mobile app to track their sea and air freight shipments. Among other features, “DGF Cargo Mobile Tracking” shows users their shipping history and the status of their current shipments. The app provides global access and is available free of charge in the respective app stores for iPhone and iPad, Android and Blackberry smartphones.

“The “DGF Cargo Mobile Tracking” application provides increased visibility to customers, as to the current status of their cargo movements, in real time, no matter where they are. Supply chain managers are often away from their desks and benefit from mobile solutions, which enable them to track time sensitive shipments and adapt their planning, where necessary. In an age of real time information availability, finger-tip convenience is a must for all supply chain professionals”, says Michael Young, Global Head of Marketing and Sales, DHL Global Forwarding.

The app offers four functions to the user: seeking shipments, saving search queries, a detailed shipping history of the past six months, and a “location finder” that shows the nearest DHL Global Forwarding office and its contact details. The search function displays not just the current shipment status; it also allows customers to track further details of the shipment process, such as the shipment’s starting time, current location and estimated time of arrival.

An individual report of the past six months supports users in checking their shipments’ economic efficiency. Finally the “Save Search” function saves pre-defined search queries, such as multi-digit consignment numbers that can be called up again with ease.
