IoT cold chain monitoring solutions use wireless temperature sensors to measure and record real-time information about temperature, humidity, and location to ensure and maintain consistent temperatures throughout the supply chain from manufacturer to end-user. Real-time temperature monitoring alerts can instantly warn you if the temperature has fluctuated below or above a predetermined threshold, allowing issues to be handled properly.
Cold chains are made up of a continuous series of temperature-controlled production, storage, and distribution environments through which perishable items, such as food products and pharmaceuticals, must pass. To maintain quality and safety, you need a mix of sensors, geolocation technologies, and wireless connectivity to deliver real-time temperature and location information across multimodal supply chains, allowing issues to be handled properly.
