Many time-sensitive products shipments requiring real-time visibility of location and conditions are transported by air. The Tive tracking devices comply with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Advisory Circular AC91.21-1D Section 10 and the EASA Guidelines for Use of Cargo Tracking Devices and have been officially approved by many airlines. The device includes a "Flight mode" which will automatically turn OFF all RF radio functions preventing any wireless transmissions and will not interfere with aircraft systems. While in flight the tracker will continue monitoring conditions (temperature, humidity, light exposure, acceleration) and report this data when the Flight Mode ends.
Tive has also made sure to integrate a way to keep track of your shipment's position while in the air for continued visibility.
Simply select Air Mode for that specific portion of your shipment and enter the Air Waybill to your shipment, along with the Carrier. This will allow us to extract location coordinates while your shipment is in the air, and display it on the Platform.
The tracker itself only communicates via cellular towers, so during the air portion of the shipment, we will be using data provided by a third party to determine location.
The use of active tracking devices aboard an aircraft is subject to two conditions:
- The device must be approved by the airline
- Airlines acceptance requirements must be followed
You can let your local airline customer service agent know if you will be using an approved active tracking device and provide the following handling specifications on the AWB
- Use the IATA Special Handling Code EMD (Electronic Monitoring Device)
- Provide the Tive tracker model (Tive TT-7000)
- Confirm the following by stating: “The device is in good and safe condition, and placed as instructed by the supplier.”
