Having lived with the COVID-19 pandemic for over a year, almost everyone now know what a non-contact infrared forehead thermometer is. But, what about non-contact IR thermometers for surfaces rather than people. Such non-contact IR thermometers have been around for many years prior to COVID-19 and are great for getting a quick temperature measurement in a wide variety of settings. These include food establishments, distribution centers, cold storage, processing facilities, conveyer belts with moving products, and hard-to-reach areas.
In 2018 the United Nations General Assembly declared June 7th “World Food Safety Day”. Each year, World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations take the lead in this effort to highlight the importance of food safety and “inspire action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne risks, contributing to food security, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, market access, tourism, and sustainable development.”

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine shipping at extremely low temperatures has been in the news lately. But, such cold temperature shipping is really not new. Shipping and storing with dry ice and liquid nitrogen are the norm for some industries and products.
Whether you’re looking for ways to monitor the temperature of vaccines stored in refrigerators or freezers or learning the best ways to manage your shipments via truck, boat, or airplane, DeltaTrak has a wealth of resources to assist you.
Food loss, especially produce, is typically the result of spoilage due to temperature excursion at an early point in the supply chain. Between 10% and 14% of produce loads are rejected because they do not meet temperature requirements. The supply chain has been plagued by poor visibility and limited data, contributing to rejected loads, which are very costly (millions of dollars annually), difficult to manage, and affect the shipper’s image.
