Track IQ became a Hanhaa Channel Partner back in September 2018. The partnership has seen Track IQ’s end customers use ParceLive to receive real-time alerts on the condition and location of consignments, whether they be physical objects, plants or living animals. This article will focus on how one ParceLive user implemented the tracker to monitor the condition of Zorro, a beloved pet dog, on a flight from Colorado, USA to Frankfurt, Germany.
By attaching the ParceLive tracker to the top of Zorro’s cage, Zorro’s owner was able to receive alerts from within the cargo hold where he was placed. This includes, temperature, humidity, light, shock and more. The tracker was designed for airplane use and while its cellular capabilities automatically shut off during flight, it still tracks and saves the actual conditions. This means that when the plane lands, cellular connectivity is restored and all the saved flight data is transmitted. This allowed the pet shipper to analyse what the flight conditions would have been like and whether or not Zorro’s life was in danger throughout the course of the flight.
Having no way of being able to check on the wellbeing of your pets when flying together can be a troubling thought. In this instance, Zorro’s owner had to sit back and wait till the 12 hour flight had ended before she could check on his condition.
