ParceLive: Real-time tracking solution for supply chain professionals in food and beverage

Problems

  • Supply chains are becoming more intricate with issues being encountered from environmental conditions, fraud, poor handling and theft.
  • The environment in which the products are travelling is hugely important to monitor. Perishable goods must be moved quickly under specific environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity and light.
  • This can be made worse when traffic, delays and general poor reconnaissance of transport routes aren’t fully scrutinised or planned.

Solutions

  • Guaranteeing product quality and safety can be solved with the simple application of ParceLive to consignments in transport.
  • ParceLive provides real-time information about how long an item has been in transit, if the vehicle transporting the goods adhered to the approved route, and, if the shipment stopped, where and for how long.
  • Data reported on temperature, tilt and humidity are critical information to monitor perishable shipments such as food, dairy products, meat, seafood, fruits, vegetable and frozen desserts.

GPS Location: Provides you with pinpoint accurate location data, from almost anywhere in the world;

Temperature: Identifies the range of temperatures that the shipment has been exposed to;

Humidity: Identifies the range of humidity that the shipment has been exposed to;

Tilt & orientation: Notifies you in real-time (or retrospectively) if your shipment has been subjected to tilting;

Shipment breaches: Triggered by light sensing events such as a box being opened;

Shock: Triggers a g-force alert when the tracker detects a shock greater than 5 g. Each alert will also display the g force value between 4 and 16 g;

ParceLive journey

ParceLive is a tracking service that provides users with real-time information about the location, condition and security of their assets, no matter the country or logistics carrier.

Alerts of exceptional events are trigged – such as a shipment being dropped, opened, tilted or exposed to temperature or humidity outside of defined parameters – and transmitted via the Hanhaa XG network to the ParceLive portal. Or directly into users’ systems via integrated API’s.

“ParceLive fulfils a need that many of our customers have been asking for – total visibility across their global supply chain.”

“There are many markets we serve today that would benefit from this technology so we’ve added ParceLive to our full suite of supply chain service offerings.”

“ParceLive built in return logistics has enabled us to add the service to the DB Schenker Smartbox family of solutions that we offer across our customer base.”

“We explored other trackers but ParceLive is the most intelligent on the market.”
