Whatever the shipment, knowing its real-time location always matters no matter the mode of transport. Since 2015, some of the world’s biggest and best companies have used Tive’s trackers and software solution to monitor shipment location in real-time. It’s easy to understand why. By securing a tracker to any shipment at the box, pallet, or container level, then activating it with the push of a button, Tive’s solution provides:

  • Hyper-accurate location (+10 meters) with cellular, GPS, and WiFi in real-time.
  • 95% global coverage.
  • Single or multi-use trackers.
  • Real-time configurable alerts, informing users of potential or active disruptions.
  • 24/7 support – Team Tive will work with you and the carrier to save your shipments when issues arise.

For many reasons, the transparency of knowing the real-time location of shipments is crucial for suppliers, manufacturers, transportation providers, logistics service providers, and other supply chain partners.

Provide Better Customer Service

Customers demand to know where their shipments are at all times. Real-time supply chain visibility and updates via Tive trackers and software enable you to provide accurate information at a moment’s notice, including location, delivery status, estimated arrival time, and more. That’s how to keep customers informed and happy.

Better Exception Management to Mitigate or Avoid Disruptions

The potential for disruption in the global supply chain is omnipresent. For instance, the container ship Ever Given brought global supply chains to a halt when the vessel got stuck in the Suez Canal in March 2021. Six days later, more than 400 vessels were backed up waiting for passage through one of the world’s busiest waterways. More recently, a snowstorm in Virginia left hundreds of motorists and truckers stranded for more than 24 hours on Interstate-95, one of the busiest highways in the United States. Having access to real-time location information plays a crucial role in exception management. If shipments are in transit and headed toward a known problem area, taking steps to optimize the route and avoid the disruption can keep things on schedule. However, if a shipment is trapped and not moving in a situation such as a ship backlog or traffic standstill, sending a replacement shipment from an alternative location can save the day.

Control Expenses

Idle time inside our outside of a port is a profit-killer. Having real-time visibility that includes up-to-the-moment location information provides the latest ETAs and helps identify potential detention and demurrage fees. Tive provides transparency that helps shippers align dray schedules with vessel’s arrival in port to prevent delays. Knowing the real-time location of shipments can also help suppliers communicate with retailers and adjust plans accordingly to avoid hefty fines for orders that fail to conform with OTIF contract terms. McKinsey analysts estimate those penalties could cost billions of dollars annually in the consumer packaged goods space alone.
