IoT Transforms Cold Chain

PakSense extends its cold chain visibility services through automated, real-time sensor data.

Effective supply chain management relies on end-to-end visibility. That visibility has increasingly been enabled by a combination of wireless communications, bar code and RFID scanning, supply chain management software, and data analytics. In the cold chain, that visibility is even more critical and includes additional data about the temperature of goods in transit. Monitoring the temperature of perishable shipments is an important part of not only maintaining the integrity of the load but also of meeting industry regulations and customer requirements and ensuring consumer safety.

That’s where the Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to play a larger role. By equipping refrigerated goods with sensors that can communicate temperature data, companies have an accurate, auditable record of that data.
