A large portion of goods moving around the globe require cold chain management to prevent
spoilage. The agricultural industry and the food chain as a whole present difficult challenges
which require complex cold chain management. Fresh and frozen foods must maintain at a
variety of temperatures to prevent the food from spoiling in very different environments such as
warehouses, manufacturing facilities, fields, trucks, etc. Lack of cold chain controls and food
spoilage causes buyers to reject the shipments. The farmer, distributor or manufacturer then lose
the value of the entire shipment. Tragically, lack of cold chain controls and food spoilage also
leads to severe illness and even death.
The pharmaceutical industry is also dependent on a complex but secure and reliable cold chain to
maintain the value of their products and brands. Improper or ineffective cold chain controls
cause temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals lose efficacy and become ineffective when
administrated or worse yet, various chemical reactions can take place in certain medications
rendering them not only ineffective, but toxic and dangerous. Pharmaceutical companies are
unavoidably the target of lawsuits. Proper cold chain management helps ensure that medications
reach patients with the maximin efficacy, minimizing liability from ineffective medications.
Vu360 Solutions helps companies protect their temperature sensitive products by implementing Cold Vu360, a comprehensive IoT based Cold Chain solution. Cold Vu360 gives companies real time active temperature monitoring and tracking of all their temperature sensitive products. When temperature sensitive products fall out of their required temperature parameters throughout the supply chain, the results can be devastating. Entire batches or truckloads of product can be lost while shippers watch their profits disappear. Consumers can become sick and drugs can become ineffective. One poorly managed cold chain shipment can destroy a companies valuable brand.
Vu360 Solutions is on the cutting edge of Cold Chain management with Cold Vu360, an automated active real time temperature monitoring and control cold chain management system. Cold Vu360 utilizes IoT,RFID and nano marker technologies to integrate 3D thermal imaging systems with any ERP or WMS system including Oracle and SAP. This provides for accurate and affordable cold chain solutions throughout both the factory and the warehouse.
Vu360 Solutions extends cold chain management beyond the factory and warehouse and continues through the shipping process. Cold Vu360 interfaces with TMS and ELD systems for real time temperature monitoring during transit. Geofencing pinpoints the location of the shipment and shippers can actively monitor the location, temperature, humidity, ethylene and CO2 levels of their freight. If the shipper chooses, access to location and temperature data can be extended to consignees to keep all parties informed.
Cold Vu360 protects valuable freight during shipping with precise cold chain controls and provides complete real time end to end visibility by incorporating tight IoT integration. If a product does fall out of the required temperature range, (or and other sensor data ranges) the system will alert the shipper for immediate mitigation via and computer, device or smartphone. The system can be interfaced with IoT enabled refrigeration units to automatically adjust the
temperature during transit.
