Dealing with goods that require constant environmental variables throughout is no easy thing for any business. Healthcare, Logistics & Warehouses, Manufacturing, and Retail industries are a few to name who face this challenge on a day-to-day basis. Cold storage warehouses and retail shops/supermarkets and refrigerated transport industry encounter this problem the most, where maintaining and monitoring the temperature conditions of perishable goods are of the utmost importance throughout the process, right from storing in the warehouse to transporting to supermarkets/retail shops. There is always a big risk of important losses when something doesn’t work well in the supply chain. The truth is continuous temperature monitoring is crucial to ensure the safety of temperature-sensitive goods, be it fresh food, plants, or medicines and for company survival in today’s tough market.
Manual reading of temperature was the most used method for monitoring which was never accurate enough and to be relied on. The process also requires high personnel costs with slow reactions in case of malfunction events and alarms. Wired temperature sensors soon became a common tool with challenges and issues with installation, scalability, and maintenance. For companies with a large number of remote location centers, maintenance and supervision involve disproportionately high costs.
So how can you be confident that the goods stored in the remote warehouse or fridges or in-transit are constantly kept in the right conditions? What happens if or when a unit breaks down or – perhaps more worryingly – if it is accidentally switched off and reset to a significantly lower temperature? The consequences can be fatal.
