By massively reducing the cost of your trackers and connectivity, Wireless IoT solutions offer flexibility, affordability, and an end-to-end view of the whole supply chain and of all your assets. You can even easily monitor the location and condition of goods as they travel by land, sea, and air.
10 REAL BENEFITS FROM USING IOT SENSORS IN COLD-CHAIN-LOGISTICS PROJECTS 2023
Temperature monitoring: IoT sensors can be used to monitor the temperature of cargo during transportation, ensuring that perishable goods are kept at the appropriate temperature to maintain their quality and safety.
Real-time tracking: IoT sensors can provide real-time tracking of cargo, allowing for the monitoring of its location and conditions throughout the transportation process.
Early warning system: IoT sensors can be used to create an early warning system for potential temperature deviations, allowing for prompt action to prevent spoilage or damage to the cargo.
Cost savings: IoT sensors can help reduce costs by reducing spoilage and damage to cargo, as well as by optimizing transportation routes.
Data analysis: IoT sensors can collect data that can be analyzed to identify patterns and trends in the transportation process, which can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cold-chain logistics.
Increased visibility: IoT sensors can provide increased visibility into the transportation process, allowing for better coordination and management of logistics.
Predictive maintenance: IoT sensors can be used to monitor the condition of transportation equipment and predict when maintenance is needed, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency.
Compliance: IoT sensors can help ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards, such as those related to food safety and temperature control.
Remote monitoring: IoT sensors can be accessed remotely, allowing for monitoring of the cargo from anywhere, at any time.
Integration with other systems: IoT sensors can be integrated with other systems such as inventory management, logistics management, and shipping tracking systems for a complete end-to-end cold-chain logistics solution.
With IOT asset trackers are now affordable, easy to install and maintain, run for years on battery, and geolocate indoors and outdoors. To optimise your supply chain, you can now track returnable packaging and containers, as well as low cost assets such as pallets, parcels or trolleys.
Smart security alarms use wireless as a backup to cellular connectivity. Power supply is another Achilles’ heel for alarm systems. Wireless presence detectors can run for months or even years without replacing the batteries and at the same time, simplifying installation and reducing costs (no wires require).
Goods such as medicines and agri-food must be transported under specific conditions to keep them viable. Wireless IOT ready solutions offer, for a low cost, more data granularity on temperature variation, shock, and tilt by tracking all crates and pallets. With accurate insights into quality control, traceability, and responsibility boundaries, it ensures goods are delivered safely, on time, and in perfect condition.
IoT solutions can help ensure food safety procedures are observed by accurately monitoring the temperature of food storage facilities and refrigerated trucks and containers. A simple device installed in the storage unit can be configured to send alerts in the event of abnormal temperature levels, to trigger swift remedial action.
Reliable cold chain temperature monitoring systems ensure the safety and compliance of cold chain assets in storage and transportation en route to their destination.
Our range of cold chain monitoring telematics devices combines sensor monitoring and GNSS tracking to ensure critical assets are always accounted for and kept in safe conditions during transport. Our integration-ready devices are designed with the capabilities to meet the unique needs of your operation — from temperature, humidity, and moisture monitoring, to indoor to outdoor asset tracking, detailed fleet management with driver behavior reporting, and theft recovery solutions that provide live tracking for asset retrieval
Monitor and record location, movement history, trailer temperature monitoring, humidity, moisture, door open/close, and more with our versatile and rugged range of GPS tracking devices for cold chain management. Custom geofencing tracks the movement of your cold assets and sends alerts when assets enter or leave specific locations. Devices can also be tailored with location-based behaviors. Preventative maintenance alerts, impact detection, and theft recovery reduce costs for loss and inefficiencies in operation.
Several of our devices combine GNSS and Bluetooth® Low Energy to not only track location but also report on nearby Bluetooth tags and sensors to gather critical environmental data such as temperature and humidity, as well as data from vehicle components and other onboard assets.
Maintain safety and compliance with a complete cold train tracking solution. Real-time refrigerated trailer tracking devices provide the data you need when you need it. Cold chain storage and truck temperature monitoring solutions require nuanced needs to ensure safety and compliance to prevent compromise of assets, such as food and pharmaceuticals, that require sensitive temperature regulation and reporting.
Each stage of the cold chain provides the opportunity for risk that can be avoided and managed with GPS trackers with temperature sensors to ensure the integrity of products and assets. With the power of real-time data provided by refrigerated vehicle tracking devices, the safety and reliability of cold chain equipment and assets can be monitored, and preventative solutions can be implemented in the case of equipment failure or temperature loss.
Vehicle temperature monitoring systems applied to refrigerated trucks and trailers can also not only provide reports on temperature monitoring; cold chain trackers can also provide insights related to driver behavior and safety and aid in theft recovery with GPS tracking features.
Reliable record keeping ensures that assets are properly managed, and temperature monitoring devices for shipping and storage ensure regulatory compliance. Manage records in detail with GPS temperature tracking and sensor monitoring reporting that digitally send data to the software platform of your choice, reducing record-keeping complications and errors.
