How Does Parcelive Work?

Get on Board

Device Included

The customer receives a Parcelive device in time for their shipment. The device is scanned, linking it to the order and placed inside of the parcel where it will stay for the duration of its trip.


Parcel is Live

The parcel is now self aware and will report back to the user on it’s location and condition in real time, no matter the country. The user will also be alerted to any events with the parcel such as it being dropped, opened, or exceeding a temperature range.


Device Returned

The receiver then removes the device from the parcel and pushes a single button prompting the display of a return address. The device is then posted back without the need for a stamp or envelope. Just push and post. Easy!

Delivering Truth At Scale

We know that for those in the logistics industry the pain lies not in the tracking of individual parcels, but in gaining useful and profitable knowledge on a scale that reaps benefits across an entire supply chain. We also know that implementing any new technology into a network is extremely difficult, that’s why parcelive comes without the need for any additional infrastructure and very little systems integration. We define Truth At Scale in 3 different ways.

The Parcelive Device

Parcelive is a post card sized device that contains an embedded sim and six embedded sensors that allow it to report back on the location and condition of your parcel. It is equipped with an e-paper screen that allows for the display of a return address and a long lasting battery to ensure your parcel is sending data all the way until its destination.

The Parcelive device has fully customisable packaging and is re-branded after each use to the needs of the specific customer. Packing of the device includes a pre paid postal license allowing for the device to be returned for re-use without any charge to the customer.


Parcelive is a worldwide service and will be effective anywhere there is a mobile phone signal. Users will not only receive information on the location of their parcel, but also real time alerts if their parcel was:
