Zencargo, the London-based digital freight forwarder helping organisations make smarter decisions through a real-time overview of their supply chain, has recently entered into a partnership with Tive, the visibility solution provider delivering critical shipment location and condition data via its real-time, best-in-class sensors.
The supply chain industry has experienced disruption over the past two years, which has led to increased costs and longer lead times from origin to destination. Shipments are at risk of delays that can affect the quality of goods, especially perishables, which are required to be kept at certain temperatures and conditions.
By partnering with Tive, Zencargo will offer customers deeper insight into the location and condition of critical goods. Tive works with trusted brands globally to track their shipments in real-time to eliminate cargo delays and damages. Through its industry-leading, hyper-accurate location and condition monitoring trackers, Tive enables businesses to monitor inventory throughout its journey, meet quality and compliance requirements, and improve delivery satisfaction with customers. Tive’s Solo5G sensor also offers geofencing capabilities, provides alerts on arrival and departure times, and sends notifications in the event of route deviations.
Zencargo’s digital platform connects all stakeholders across the inbound supply chain. The platform is designed to help stakeholders access information across the supply chain to optimise performance. Businesses will have a precise overview of their shipments’ location and access data and insights through a real-time collaborative platform to prevent issues before they arise and minimise lost sales from damaged or delayed goods.
Alex Hersham, CEO and Co-Founder of Zencargo, comments: “With this partnership, we’re able to add greater visibility to our customers’ supply chains on top of the existing services we offer. By ensuring they have all the information they need to make agile decisions, delays and damage to goods can be prevented and customers will receive goods in the most efficient and timely way.”
“Tive’s complementary supply chain visibility services enable Zencargo to deliver even deeper value to their customers,” said Krenar Komoni (pictured), CEO & Founder of Tive. “The ability to view hyper-accurate location and condition tracking – in real time – from within the Zencargo platform helps ensure that products arrive on time and in full, preventing issues before they arise.”
Zencargo serves many industries in which shippers are moving high-value, high-risk cargo- such as fashion, luxury goods and beauty products,” said Krenar Komoni, CEO & Founder of Tive. “The higher the value of the cargo, the greater the risk. Real-time, in-transit visibility is invaluable for these shippers, ensuring that products arrive on time and in full.
Complete solution for pharma industry
Further to the announcement of its partnership with Zencargo, Tivehas unveiled a portfolio of real-time cold chain management logistics solutions for pharmaceutical, biologicals, and cell gene therapy companies. Tive’s multi-sensor Solo 5G trackers capture and transmit hyper-accurate location and temperature data of shipments in real time -enabling customers to actively monitor in-transit shipments, take action when deviations occur, and identify areas for supply chain improvements.
With this announcement, Tive now covers the full range of temperatures required to protect all critical cold chain shipments – including dry ice and cryogenic shipments. In addition to lithium and non-lithium Solo 5G trackers (TT-7000/TT-7100) already covering the temperature range 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.
“Tive dedicated a tremendous amount of energy to create hardware and software offerings that give biotech, pharmaceutical, and cell gene therapy companies a complete cold chain solution – as well as a tremendous competitive advantage,” says Komoni. “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.”
“Biocair wants the best of the best, and that’s why we use Tive: they offer a full cold chain solution that enables us to be proactive rather than reactive at every point in the supply chain,” says Robert Pagan, Packaging Solutions Engineer at Biocair. “We are an extremely customer-centric company, and by using Tive we demonstrate to our clients that we are on the cutting edge of technology and medicine to better serve them, and to set ourselves apart from the competition.”
Approved for use on more than 130 air carriers, Tive’s solutions are GxP compliant and all the components (hardware and software) are developed and tested following the Good Automated Manufacturing Practice 5 (GAMP 5) model. A 3-Point NIST-traceable Certificate of Calibration is included with every Tive Solo 5G tracker, and both trackers and probes are fully calibrated by an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. In addition, the Tive cloud-based application complies with both FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 requirements. Tive is SOC 2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 compliant.
