EUROPE - DHL Freight is now offering its customers an upgraded and uniform way to track shipments across Europe. Their new Active Tracing system makes it easier for the company’s clients to check the whereabouts of their road freight shipments and customers can now receive up to thirty status information events from across the entire transportation chain, from pick-up to delivery. The new tracking service has compatibility with iPhones and Android smartphones with Apps designed especially for small and medium-sized businesses, allowing customers to access their shipments information anywhere and anytime.

"The new application offers our customers enhanced transparency and control over their shipments,” says Henning Goldmann, Chief Information Officer at DHL Freight.

“With the Active Tracing apps we also respond to an ever increasing need for mobile and flexible services - taking the customer experience with our track and trace service to the next level of convenience and thereby simplifying their lives".
