Conventional temperature monitoring is a means of tracking the temperature of food, pharmaceuticals, or any other product that needs to be kept within a certain temperature range during transport by means of electronic temperature loggers. Temperature monitoring preserves that the goods or products in the cold chain have always remained at a healthy temperature to mitigate risks to the consumer.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers, supermarkets, distributors, fleets, and refrigerated container (‘reefer’) operators all rely on temperature monitoring to assess the safety of perishable goods and products being shipped.
Typically, conventional temperature monitoring collects data on the temperature of a shipment and then generates a report on the temperature. However, depending on circumstances, the devices may not be able to share information as quickly as is needed, especially in the case of a temperature excursion.
