FedEx is introducing a new device that can track the temperature, light exposure and location of a package at any point in its journey.

The package delivery company said the product, called SenseAware, will initially be targeted for customers in the healthcare and life sciences industries, for sensitive shipments including medications and test samples. SenseAware can be used for single shipments or a large group of packages on a pallet.
