Parcelive Tracker Functions & Capabilities

Purpose of tracker

The purpose of the Parcelive tracker is to allow its users to track not only the location but also condition (if it was: dropped, wet, hot/cold, opened, tilted) of their parcels in real time no matter the carrier or country.

The tracker is equipped with a single button and e-ink screen that facilitates the return and reuse of the tracker in line with the Parcelive model of offering a low cost parcel tracking service at scale. The tracker also has six embedded sensors that allow for the reporting back of any incidents within the parcel.

Battery Life

Each ParceLive tracker has a minimum battery life of 20 days but can track for up to 30. Battery life varies due to factors such as the number of alerts that are sent out during its journey, continuous poor signal strength and extreme temperature changes.

Connectivity

ParceLive is connected by Hanhaa Mobile, Hanhaa’s very own mobile network and a world first for the logistics industry. Hanhaa Mobile is specifically designed to provide seamless connectivity for ParceLive from just about anywhere in the world.

Placement of tracker

In order to receive correct data from their tracker, users should ensure that it is secured on the inside of the parcel. Trackers should be placed either on the interior side of the box or the interior flap of the boxes top with the screen facing the inside of the parcel. To ensure correct light readings are taken, the contents of the parcel should not block the front of the tracker. The movement of a tracker that is unsecured inside a parcel may lead to incorrect sensor readings and therefore data.
