The cold chain industry is always looking for methods to improve efficiency, quality, and service. Here’s a glimpse into the five trends impacting and benefiting the industry.
New Cold Chain Trends
The new wave of disruptive technologies, such as blockchain, IoT, and machine learning are shaping the future of the cold chain industry. Since blockchain data can’t be modified or deleted, the Food and Drug Administration and other regulators will continue to show interest.
Speed and Visibility
Thanks to new technologies and regulatory framework, companies can provide clients with product visibility and control in real time.
Data will remain a fundamental component of logistics operations in the cold chain. Maintaining an optimal temperature during the handling and transportation of perishable items is critical in order to mitigate risk while supporting food safety efforts. Cargo Data’s real time temperature recorders are a reliable and affordable way for shippers, carriers, and receivers to ensure that their food products are stored and transported within the Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) temperature requirements. Plus, monitoring enables more precise control over the environment in our buildings.
Cloud-Based Data Sharing
Real-time data requires an infrastructure that can collect and share data. Cargo Data’s KoldLink software package offers robust capabilities, including the ability to easily export data to other popular applications for analysis.
A sustainable cold chain has a massive impact on the environment and bottom line. More and more companies are starting to realize the benefits of sustainable packaging and recycling. Cargo Data encourages temperature recorder recycling to eliminate hazardous electronic component waste. As part of our green initiative, Cargo Data offers rebates for the return of our temperature data collection tools for recycling.
