Cold Storage Deliveries Case Study

Cold Storage Deliveries Case Study

Product News Thursday, August 31, 2017: Mimic Components CC


SEGMENT: Cold Chain distributors.

INDUSTRY: Refrigerated delivery services and fleets, cold chain temperature controlled planning.

 Logging regular and detailed temperature updates is vital to keeping quality service that a refrigerated delivery service company provides. The refrigerated vans must be kept at a constant temperature to avoid the risk of compromising the contents inside.

The challenge

 Previously, a refrigerated delivery company checked all its data using basic temperature monitoring equipment. This was often time-consuming, relatively expensive and did not alert staff to drops or rises in temperature, meaning staff often found out hours later that the vans were not at the correct temperature by which time the contents had already been damaged. As a result, the refrigerated delivery company began looking at alternative solutions to simplify the data logging process.  Cost was of course an important factor, but they were more concerned with ensuring that the quality of the product met the requirements of their company.

The solution

The refrigerated delivery company discovered that the EL-WiFi temperature sensors were an affordable and practical solution. An important buying factor for the company was that the new temperature sensors could store data to the EL-WiFi Cloud, providing them with the opportunity to access their data anytime from anywhere. They invested in a couple of EL-WiFi-TP temperature sensors with probes, which they deployed into specific areas throughout the cargo holding section. These sensors focus on measuring temperatures between the range of -40° and +125°C.

The benefit

Once installed, the system worked well giving a long-term, cost effective solution. Viewing the statistics of the temperature in the refrigerated vans was easy to manage. Several EL-WiFi sensors were used across sites, with the data being checked and logged daily.
