ParceLive: Telematics mecFLEET Integration

on June 3, 2020 No comments

MECOMO AG is one of the leading providers of tracking solutions that specializes in creating customized telematics services for solving complex logistics tasks. The technical fundament for location-based and tracking solutions is mecFLEET, a modular, flexible software platform for tracking and providing telematics of vehicles, objects and persons.

Hanhaa is an internet-of-things innovator. Hanhaa’s first integrated solution, ParceLive, is a real-time cargo tracking service that connects users to live information about the location, condition and security of their assets regardless of their country, carrier or scale.

Through API integration, Hanhaa’s ParceLive device connects with MECOMO’s mecFLEET platform to enable ParceLive users with improved fleet management, greater control and enhanced reporting abilities. 

Deeper insight…

Organizations that frequently ship items across the world have a tricky time with constantly knowing where their cargo is and whether or not the goods being transported have been prone to damage. Those organizations that are much smaller in size with fewer operations globally, are in a better position to perform manual reporting and observations when monitoring their shipments. Larger organizations require more efficient and automated reporting technologies to keep up to pace with their assets moving throughout the supply chain.

For organizations using ParceLive, Hanhaa’s integration with mecFLEET enables these companies with the tools and software that are required to stay constantly informed with their shipments travelling to their end destination.

Geofencing

Geofencing is a location-based service in which an app or other software uses GPS, RFID, Wi-Fi or cellular data to trigger a pre-programmed action when a mobile device or RFID tag enters or exits a virtual boundary set up around a geographical location.

With the mecFLEET integration, ParceLive users are able to set up their own geofences enabling them to monitor activity in secure areas, allowing management to see alerts when anyone enters or leaves a specific area. ParceLive users are able to draw polygons for selected geofenced areas for a more detailed border.

For companies that have a high volume of shipments, using geofenced areas to define delivery areas allows you to easily notify on-site staff when a shipment is approaching. This means you can free up resources and docks before the truck arrives, which allows you to better manage everyone’s time.

You can also geofence something as simple as a truck route, allowing you to receive notifications if the driver deviates from the planned path, which could indicate a delay in delivery time.

Automated reporting

For organisations with high volumes of shipments, monitoring all your assets in transport can be a daunting thought. Depending on the nature of your cargo, there are numerous variables one must constantly monitor so as to not cause damage to the goods in transit. ParceLive users that integrate with mecFLEET are able to automate the entire reporting process with all shipments, saving time and reducing stress.

The images below are an example of some of the reporting metrics that you can automate.

When an alert is triggered, ParceLive users are able to receive email or text alerts to notify them on their cargo’s location and condition.

Shipment/Tour Monitoring

Knowing where your cargo is at all times is imperative for any supply chain manager. When cargo travels via sea freight enclosed within a container, ParceLive’s smart sensor technology is able to still pick up GPS signal and relay data back to the user’s portal.

Whilst at sea, there will be times when ParceLive will struggle to pick up a signal. Although this may be the case, all the sensor data regarding the condition of the cargo in transit will still be recorded, and made readily available to the ParceLive user once a signal has been found again.

With the mecFLEET integration, ParceLive users are able to see the GPS positioning of the seafaring vessel at all times.

With the ParceLive mecFLEET integration, supply chain and logistics professionals the world over are able to transform their logistic workflows. Users are now afforded with the tools and software for improved fleet management and reporting, more control possibilities through freely definable geofencing and greater flexibility through scalable interfaces and workflow management.
