Cold Chain Goods Management
Secure Your Supply Chain with Intelligent Data
Countless supply chains contain items that are temperature sensitive and require appropriate handling throughout the supply chain to ensure the integrity of the goods. Although traditional temperature sensors can provide data in regards to the current temperature – the collection of the data, especially in an integrated supply chain can be difficult. By taking advantage of RFID temperature loggers and passive temperature tags, companies can quickly and accurately capture current and historical (if using a logger) temperature .
How it works
1. Tag RFID
RFID temperature loggers are assigned to a shipment. These loggers can be configured to log temperature at a predefined interval. The loggers themselves typically have a battery on board to handle this operation. Alternatively, passive temperature tags (no battery), can also be used but will not provide historical temperature information, just the current temperature.
2. RFID Reader
At strategic points in the supply chain, use RFID handhelds and fixed readers running TagMatiks software to communicate to the RFID temperature tags. If using loggers, collect historical data as well.
3. Calculate Temperature
In TagMatiks, set alarms based on temperature thresholds and report to users based on data collected. Take the appropriate business action.
Throughout the supply chain, if product crosses a threshold, alert stakeholders of the problem.
Integrated Supply Chain
With numerous supply chain partners, have standardized approach to collect and distribute data with all involved parties. Establish chain of custody of inventory using RFID and match sensor data to each party.
