For those in the cold chain and or perishable foods industry, implementing a real-time temperature monitoring system that carefully and accurately monitors perishable food items, is crucial. Not only does it help with compliance with food safety standards, it also saves money by reducing spoilage and costly disputes between suppliers and receivers.
Not all real-time temperature recorders are created equal. Here are a few factors to consider as you choose the best real-time temperature monitoring system for your application.
Real Temperature Monitoring
Ability to View Data in Real Time
With Cargo Data’s Lightning Real Time temperature monitoring instruments, temperature AND location data is available for review 24/7 while the shipment is in-transit. Simply enter the instrument serial number into Cargo Data’s UpLink portal on the homepage. The system can also send email/text alerts when the temperature breaches the preferred range. This level of insight is only possible with real-time temperature monitoring instruments.
Don’t Overlook Conventional (data logger) Temperature Monitoring
Cargo Data Corp also markets a range of conventional data logging type temperature recorders. These instruments download the collected temperature data into a computer or smartphone upon arrival at destination. Cargo Data’s KoldLink software package offers robust capabilities, including the ability to easily export data to other programs for analysis. All data viewed in KoldLink software is automatically sent to Cargo Data’s cloud archive for permanent storage.
Single-Use or Reusable?
A single use recorder makes the most sense for carrier who operate are one-way, since there is no cost-effective means to return the recorder to the shipping point for re-use. In some closed-loop supply chains, a reusable recorder is the most cost-effective option. Check Cargo Data’s Streamer4G or Boomerang2 instruments for reusable applications.
Rebates for Used Recorder Recycling
Cargo Data Corporation encourages 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.
