Cold Chain Logistics

Ensuring compliant, safe transports

Cold Chain Solution

Along with all the other complexities associated with transporting goods, cold chain logistics require strict adherence to maintaining temperature thresholds for each delivery. Monitoring humidity is required in perishables transportation, complying with manufacturers’ thresholds. Not doing so, or not having the ability to prove that you’ve done so, can disqualify valuable shipments and leave you with unhappy customers, damaged goods and in breach of service level agreements.
With tools that ensure compliance with GDP (Good Distribution Practices) that regulates the pharma industry, and EN 12830 (European standards) for transportation of deep frozen and quick-frozen food and ice cream, Pointer’s solutions for cold chain logistics effectively monitors cargo condition. You’ll be able to monitor single or multi-compartment refrigerated trailers up to single pallets, with options for audible in-cab alarms, as well as to the control room, reporting deviations in pre-defined humidity or temperature thresholds.
