In the past, shippers of perishable products would arrange with carriers to deliver their shipment from Point A to Point B and hope for the best. There was little or no visibility into the temperature conditions in the back of the truck or where en route the truck actually was.
Fortunately, the FlashLink® BLE Data Logger changes all that. The “BLE” stands for Bluetooth Low Energy and has turned the product into a real-time temperature, humidity and location solution. Now, en route conditions of perishable products in refrigerated vans, trucks and containers are completely accessible.
The BLE Logger sends data to a smartphone or tablet in the driver’s cab. The smart device then uploads the data to the web where it can be viewed by anyone who has the login credentials. The system will send alerts via text messages and emails when out-of-range conditions occur.
Carriers no longer need to open the door and locate the logger in the back of the truck. Also, shippers and carriers can make immediate route changes or corrective actions based on location and temperature data.
En route shipment visibility has arrived!
