Smarter Cold Chain System2018-07-02T07:59:37+00:00

Logistics + Temperature Monitoring = Smarter Cold Chain System

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the efficiency and efficacy of long distance food, pharmaceutical, and other perishable supply chains. Rather than merely consisting of freezers and freight trains, this supply chain, known as the “cold chain” or temperature-controlled supply chain, is now increasingly incorporating digital software solutions, secure cloud technology, and open architecture.

The result? A smarter cold chain system, where monitoring devices can provide managers with live data about temperature and location, mitigating any problems along the chain before they arise.

What does hIOTron Smart cold chain system solution include?

Information is Power in cold chain. After all, the cargo transported, be it via ship, airplane, truck or train, must be kept at the perfect temperature. Even the slightest change in conditions can spell disaster.

With potentially billions of dollars’ worth of cargo at stake worldwide, the careful live monitoring, sending and receiving of business-critical information is essential to success. When it comes to collecting the data, then following components required to collect real-time parameters which are exceptionally useful to make the complete process visible of passing the cargos from the manufacturer through suppliers, distribution centers, retailers and ultimately on to customers
