Exposure to excessive heat or cold at any step in the cold chain can damage food items, resulting in shrink, food safety issues, costly spoilage claims, and redelivery fees. Fortunately, real-time temperature monitoring can prevent these issues.
Why Utilize Real Time Temperature Monitoring?
Utilizing a temperature monitoring system for perishable food transportation allows shippers, carriers, and receivers to monitor the product’s temperature throughout the transportation process. This will enable each party to step in and make any necessary changes before the products are damaged from improper temperatures. Without a temperature monitoring system, truckloads of product could arrive at a receiver and be rejected due to unsafe temperatures. With Cargo Data’s Lightning Real Time temperature recorders, alerts can be sent in real-time to shippers and carriers so they can immediately step in and solve the problem before the product is unsafe or unsellable. Cargo Data has further implemented an advanced “Alert pre-configuration” program which simplifies the work of shipping clerks at the origin location. Vital information is pre-loaded into Cargo Data’s system, so the shipping clerk needs only to note the device serial number and activate the instrument.
What to Look for in a Provider
If you’re carrying products that need to meet FSMA compliance standards, you’ll want to consider a choice that offers real-time monitoring. These “set-it-and-forget” systems monitor the temperature of your product regularly while it’s being shipped. You can then review temperature and location data at any time.
