Your active tracking device

We offer you the option of using active tracking devices on Air France KLM Cargo services. This will allow you to track your shipment more precisely whenever you need to, in whatever way that suits you. Our aim is to support you in using end-to-end tracking solutions throughout the journey of your shipment.

The use of active tracking devices aboard our flights is subject to two conditions:
  • The device must be approved by Air France KLM Cargo; and
  • The Air France KLM Cargo acceptance requirements must be followed.

If you intend to use this new option, please read the following very carefully. Full details of our conditions are available here.
