The temperature-controlled air cargo market continues to grow. According to IATA, 54% of special cargo, in terms of weight, transported by air carriers in 2021 were perishables such as fruits and vegetables, flowers, and pharmaceuticals. To mitigate spoilage and to maintain the integrity of such goods as produce, beverages, and pharmaceuticals, visibility into temperature-controlled air cargo has become a requirement.

Air Cargo World weighed in on the subject recently, highlighting, among other things, Tive’s cold chain tracking solutions. This article expands on the topic a bit more.

How Low Do You Need to Go with Cold Chain Temperature Tracking?

While many visibility tech tools can track, monitor, and adjust temperatures in flight, Tive’s solutions can monitor much colder extremes while in transit. Tive now covers the full range of temperatures required to protect all critical cold chain shipments. In addition to covering temperatures of -30°C to 60°C, Tive is adding new trackers with probes that will reach -200°C to monitor dry ice and cryogenic shipments.

"As the demand for low and ultra-low temperature shipments increases, it becomes even more critical for companies across the globe to have complete in-transit visibility—so they can deliver high-quality products that assure patient safety." Tive CEO & Founder Krenar Komoni said in a press release announcing the company’s new validated, complete cold chain solution for the pharmaceuticals and biological industries — sectors that rely on ultra-low temperature tracking and hyper-accurate condition monitoring.

Tive’s 5G Solo Trackers Provide Item-Level Actionable Insights

The 5G Solo tracker, powered by non-lithium batteries that airlines require, provides shippers and stakeholders with actionable insights available only through item-level tracking while in flight. A 5G Solo tracker in place at the item or container level offers:

  • Hyper-accurate location, temperature, and humidity tracking for unparalleled visualization and monitoring of in-flight shipments.
  • Real-time alerts that empower stakeholders to mitigate disruptions or avoid them altogether.
  • Continuous tracking through global cellular coverage: LTE IoT Cat-M1 (4G/5G), GSM (2G) Fallback.

Alex Guillen, Tive's Director of Sales for Life Sciences and Pharmaceuticals Europe, said one of the most significant advantages of Tive's technology is that it is 5G enabled, which means better and faster updates from airplanes, trucks, and other transportation modes. It allows for continuous, end-to-end monitoring without interruptions during handoffs from one transportation provider to another, which has often plagued the transport of perishables.

Plus, the 5G Solo tracker affords shippers flexibility (single or multi-use) and documents proof of efforts to follow the guidelines of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory agencies.

Trust Tive to Track & Monitor Your Cold Chain Air Cargo

Tive's multi-sensor Solo 5G trackers are approved for use on more than 130 air carriers and are GxP compliant. Tive offers its technology via an application programming interface (API) to airlines, freight forwarders, technology partners, and other supply chain providers. They can monitor shipments individually or through Tive's cloud-based platform and its 24/7 monitoring service, which consists of Tive employees overseeing shipments on their behalf. Satisfied customers include Alpine Fresh, Mercury, Geodis, DB Schenker, and DSV, to name a few.

When shipping perishable foods, beverages, flowers, or frozen meats — or potentially life-saving vaccines and biologicals requiring ultra-low temperature monitoring — Tive is a trusted partner that provides assurance those products get monitored at every step of the journey.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
