Tive Releases New 5G Supply Chain Tracker

By Ken Briodagh November 12, 2019

In a recent release, Tive, a provider of in-transit supply chain tracking solutions, has announced the release of its Solo 5G tracker. The company says its single-use and multi-use tracker is now 5G-enabled while it continues to support 4G and 2G networks globally, with the stated purpose of eliminating data and coverage gaps where 2G and 3G networks are being replaced.

“The Tive Solo 5G helps solve one of the largest problems that trackers of today have, by minimizing dead zones,” said Josh Hussin, client development manager, Crane Solutions, a user of the device. “With the Tive Solo 5G, we will have more granular tracking and get full visibility into all our loads across North America.”

The tracker reportedly provides high accuracy location, and measures temperature, humidity, shock, and light exposure. It can report the sensor and location data in real-time to the cloud-based Tive supply chain platform, where customers can monitor and analyze shipments, benchmark carrier behavior, setup geofences, and other sensor alerts.

“We listened to our customers, and ninety-plus percent of them told us that we need a tracker that has complete coverage and is future-proof. With our new Tive Solo 5G tracker, we have delivered and solved the blind-spot constraint common to all other trackers,” said Krenar Komoni, CEO and founder, Tive. “In addition to greater geographic reach, the Tive Solo 5G includes all the attributes of our previous Solo and Flagship tracker, long battery life, most accurate location in the market, global cellular connectivity, and condition sensors for temperature, light, humidity, shock, and tilt.”

In addition to reducing operational complexity and reverse logistics with single-use trackers, Tive stated in the release that it is committed to sustainability, offering a rebate program that encourages and rewards the return of single-use trackers to Tive for recycling.
