The FINANCIAL -- To ensure a high-quality, consistent service, Delta Cargo has entered into an exclusive long-term partnership with CarePod, a pet technology start-up that has developed a new standard of first-class safety and care for pet air travel.
Through this partnership, Delta Cargo will launch a new pet transportation strategy. With a new range of smart, pet travel products and services, CarePod will help Delta better carry and monitor pets throughout the network, with real-time updates for customers. This is alongside the recent introduction of a staff veterinarian to the Delta Cargo team who will review policies and procedures to ensure safe and comfortable pet travel.
Delta’s team of specialists constantly review processes and policies to identify areas of improvement to ensure the safety and health of pets. The airline has specially trained ground handlers who take care of pets at every step of their journey. Delta also has temperature-controlled holding areas and vehicles in numerous locations, overnight kenneling services, and real-time GPS tracking service for pet shipments. The new Cargo Control Center in Atlanta also gives the airline 24/7/365 visibility into all shipments, including pets.
