Thanks to cloud-based real-time temperature monitoring, food safety and product traceability has never been easier. However, there tends to be some misconceptions about real-time visibility in the cold chain.
Common Real-Time Visibility Misconceptions
Real-time temperature monitoring is expensive.
Perhaps the most common misconception in the cold chain is that real-time temperature recorders are expensive. However, not only are temperature monitors affordable, but they also reduce costly and time-intensive claims and eliminate redelivery delays.
Real-time, end-to-end cold chain visibility isn’t possible.
At Cargo Data, we offer products that provide real-time, end-to-end visibility in the cold chain. Our Lightning Real Time temperature recorders provide online access to current temperature, location, and door status while perishable shipments are in-transit. All data is archived online and available for review 24/7 using Cargo Data’s UpLink System.
Teaching logistics partners how to use temperature monitors is too difficult.
Establishing processes and sharing of data with stakeholders is essential for continued success in the cold chain. When you use a temperature monitor from Cargo Data, you and your logistics partners will have access to a free and user-friendly KoldLink software that creates and analyzes reports for data collected by conventional temperature recorders. KoldLink automatically sends all temperature data to Cargo Data’s UpLink online archive.
It’s difficult to maintain regulatory compliance.
Many believe regulatory compliance is an ongoing uphill battle. Fortunately, real-time temperature monitors can streamline this process. Our temperature recorders automate compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and additional food safety regulations by providing proof that perishable food items have been transported at safe temperatures.
