FedEx has a new service that could change shipping for industries such as healthcare, the arts and more. SenseAware® powered by FedEx, is a comprehensive tracking and monitoring service that provides vital statistics such as current location, temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity and light sensitivity of each shipment.

    SenseAware® by FedEx is traveling with the Ohio CycleWorks bike team as their official sponsor in this year’s Race Across America (RAAM).  Known as the “World’s Toughest Bicycle Race,” RAAM is one of the longest running sporting events in the world. More like a brutal punishment than a tour in my opinion, RAAM began in Oceanside, CA on June 12th and continues until June 25th in Annapolis, MD, the racers’ final destination. The route covers over 3000 miles crossing over 12 states, 88 counties and 350 communities.

    SenseAware®  devices will travel with the team throughout the entire race linked to the web-based platform providing near real-time GPS location and environmental conditions. The Ohio CycleWorks bike team is raising money for the Akron Children’s Hospital. FedEx Custom Critical is happy to be a proud supporter of the Akron Children’s Hospital and the Ohio CycleWorks team. It’s a perfect fit since healthcare establishments, such as Akron Children’s Hospital, can use the SenseAware® technology to monitor critical and life saving shipments.

    I received compensation from FedEx for covering the use of SenseAware® technology during the 2012 Race Across America. My ideas and opinions relayed in this blog post and any related Twitter discussions are the my own and are not provided by FedEx or its affiliates and subsidiaries.
