Cold chain monitoring

Keeping your cool

For warehousing and logistics providers that specialise in freezer environments it is essential to maintain consistent levels throughout the supply chain.

A common way of doing this is to monitor the temperature of the spaces within the warehouse and within the trailers of the lorries doing the transportation piece.

However, this method does not give you traceability of the individual pallets/boxes or items as they traversed through the supply chain.

A item could have been left on a loading dock or bay for longer than expected and any temperature fluctuations it was subjected to would be missed.

A solution that can record and alert on temperatures throughout the supply chain

Oxspring Network Solutions with their Tagscout platform can provide you with temperature data from both a buildings and trailer level right down to the individual stock items. The solution can even provide live temperature readings of stock as it travels travel throughout the supply chain anywhere in the world.

All of this is possible with the use of ultra-low powered battery operated network infrastructure.

The alerting engine within Tagscout can be configured to automatically notify you if a product or product type experiences values outside of an acceptable threshold. What’s more you will receive this message regardless of where your product is right at the moment it happens.

Identifying issues within your temperature controller environments

By generating reports within Tagscout the historical temperature data can be analysed to see whether certain buildings/trailers or other storage units are subjecting stock or items to suboptimal environments is another key feature of the solution.

It can help to identify where certain refrigeration equipment is not operating at optimal levels and may be in need of servicing or repair works.

By creating zones of your buildings within the software this data can be identified in an automated fashion if specific spaces are falling out of an acceptable range.
