Supermarket Use Case
Perishable foods in transit often go to waste due to improper temperature control. With the increment of food delivery and food trade in general, the cold chain is becoming a main problem to warranty that is maintained. There is still not a common law for cold chain on food delivery, but it will exist soon. On the other hand, the amount of waste from perishable foods has increased over time and contributes to a huge portion of waste that is harmful to the environment and can be potentially dangerous for us. A large percent of supermarket inventory is made up of perishables. Perishables include, but are not limited to, meat and poultry, dairy, fruits and vegetables – clearly they make up a large portion of supermarket sales.
Vaccines are a regulated good that is mandatory to send with refrigerated control, all around the world since some years ago. The cold chain is a critical part of the vaccines. Once the cold chain is broken in a vaccine, it becomes completely useless. In addition some countries require specific documentation during the transportation of medical goods that need to accomplish the cold chain. With thethings.iO we can help you to monitor in real-time the cold chain for vaccines and medical goods, sending alerts every time there is a risk to break it.
