Why This Partnership

Scott Garchar, a member of the Ohio CycleWorks bike team, has worked with FedEx Custom Critical for more than a decade. FedEx Custom Critical specializes in the transport of high-value, time-critical freight, and they use devices like SenseAware℠ for customers whose shipments require temperature-control, special care in handling, or secure transportation of their products.

Sponsored by FedEx Custom Critical, Scott’s Ohio CycleWorks bike team is participating in the 2012 Race Across America (RAAM) to raise money for the Akron Children’s Hospital. On their journey they are showcasing SenseAware℠ powered by FedEx.

It’s a great opportunity to raise awareness of a great product

SenseAware℠ allows customers to monitor critical shipments—like the kind that can help save the lives of the very children that Ohio CycleWorks is riding to support. SenseAware℠ provides real-time data, including vital statistics about the shipment such as current location, temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity and light sensitivity.

It’s a worthy cause

Ranked a Best Children’s Hospital overall, Akron Children’s earned special rankings by US News & World Report in the specialties of neonatology and pediatric nephrology, orthopedics and pulmonary medicine.
