SMART CHAIN

The advantages of monitoring the cold chain


Controlling the cold chain allows clients to guarantee customer satisfaction, meet quality standards and improve ROI.


Cold chain continuity during distribution and delivery is an ongoing concern. Transport conditions, such as the temperature of the truck that is carrying refrigerated, frozen and controlled-temperature products, as well as warehouse conditions, need to be monitored and controlled in order to guarantee an unbroken cold chain.
Just one break in any point of the cold chain, whether it be because of poor infrastructure, poor process management or errors in product handling during distribution or commercialization, can lead to:
  • Economic loss due to damaged product.
  • Decrease in product shelf life.
  • Loss of confidence from buyer or consumer.
For our clients, controlling the cold chain is fundamental for public health reasons, as well as customer satisfaction. Commission Regulation (EC) No. 37/2005 on the monitoring of temperatures in the means of transport, warehousing and storage of quick-frozen foodstuffs intended for human consumption requires the control and recording of temperatures during the entire cold chain; fabrication, long distance transport, warehouse storage, distribution, commercialization and consumption.
Metiora offers an affordable and easy-to-install solution. Our smart chain solution monitors product temperature during the entire cold chain, providing the client with real-time reports and alerts that allow them to detect logistical inefficiencies that could lead to a change in product temperature.
Product quality is critical when promoting sales. For that reason, controlling the temperature is of the utmost importance, as it directly affects the fermentation and thawing processes. Thanks to our solution, our clients are able to identify the root of any potential problem and guarantee their customers the best product quality possible.
