Technology enhancements and upgrades

  *SenseAware 2000: The new device offers customers improved benefits over
    the original SenseAware 1000 device first offered in November 2009. These
    include increased battery life, improved GPS technology, and better
    cellular connectivity.
  *Accessories: SenseAware 2000 device is designed to support a temperature
    probe which has a temperature measurement range of -80°C to 60°C (-112°F
    to 140°F).

The SenseAware platform has added a variety of new key application
improvements, including:

  *Route Geo-fences: Customers can now create a geo-fence along the actual
    route a shipment should follow and set up alerts to notify the customer if
    the shipment deviates from this pre-established route. This feature is
    available on ground shipments.
  *Environmental Data Specification: When setting up a journey or creating a
    template, customers can now choose which environmental data, such as
    temperature, humidity or barometric pressure, is collected. This ensures
    that the device only collects data for specific environments requested,
    thus streamlining the amount of information the customer receives.
  *Nonevent Geo-fence Triggers: Triggers can be set up to alert or notify
    customers when geo-fence events do not occur as expected by a specified
    time. This helps customers determine if a package has gotten off pace or
    off track.
