IoT for Cold Chain
of dollars’ worth of pharmaceutical products are stored and shipped at improper temperatures or are delayed in route, causing them to reach their destination well beyond their expiration date.
Cold Chain Management Poses Unique Problems
Whether you’re shipping food or pharmaceuticals, common problems exist throughout the cold chain. Appropriate temperatures must be constantly maintained, and storage conditions properly documented. For pharmaceuticals, which are often high-value assets, proper custodianship must also be maintained to prevent both loss and counterfeiting.
GeoTraq IoT Modules Enable Smart Cold Chain Management
The unique challenges of cold chain management, including regulatory requirements, can be conveniently and discreetly monitored through solutions enabled by GeoTraq Mobile IoT modules. GeoTraq provides a suite of penny-sized Mobile IoT modules (Tracker-Modules and Sensor-Modules) that fill critical coverage gaps in supply chain logistics. With our plug and play approach, you can have a connected device in under 5 minutes by simply attaching an antenna, battery, and desired sensors.
Preserve Shipments with IoT Smart Cold Chain Management
Physically measuring temperature during delivery and logging the information manually, can be a daunting and tedious task, but it doesn’t have to be. GeoTraq Mobile IoT modules and global connectivity provide you with only the data you need, right when you need it. You can receive status updates at scheduled times or create customized trigger events to wake the module up to send an alert if conditions are met that could be dangerous to your perishable goods. Trigger points can report if the temperature-sensitive product exceeds pre-set thresholds, helping to prevent spoilage and loss. Alerts can also be triggered by creating geofences, which let you know when high-value assets have left a predefined area or route, or have arrived at their destination.
IoT Modules Make Cold Chain Management Smart
Solutions powered by GeoTraq Mobile IoT modules for cold chain management means your temperature-controlled supply chain can now easily handle stringent demands, documentation, and meet product safety requirements. GeoTraq IoT modules offer a 10+ year battery life, one of the best power consumption capabilities available on the market for supply chain management devices. Combined with a small form factor — smaller than a penny — you have an unbeatable solution for Cold Chain management, without the coverage gaps or complexity issues that prevent real, affordable scalability.
