Placement Of Tracker

In order to receive correct data from the trackers, users should ensure that it is fastened securely to the cargo in transit whether it be a container, pallet or parcel.

To ensure correct light readings are taken, the contents of the goods in transit should not block the front of the tracker.

The movement of a tracker that is not secured when in transport may lead to incorrect sensor readings and therefore data.
