Cold Chain is the process of safely providing perishable products to the consumer. Doing so can be especially difficult during a disruption, such as vehicle breakdown or refrigeration failure. The ability to monitor the temperature of each individual product is one of the greatest industry challenges. By providing automated, continuous temperature monitoring, HiQ e-systems Avatars transmit an accurate reading of the entire storage environment via mathematical modeling, replacing traditional glycol-based sensors.
Additionally, issues exist, such as:
- Inconvenience of placing the glycol temperature sensor within the product shipment
- Disruptions in proper handling practices can result in a deviation in the environment and compromise the safety of products in a shipment
- Disruptions happen frequently due to equipment failures or unforeseen events
- Product safety is jeopardized when products are without refrigeration for a period of time
