Over the past weeks, you likely have heard about the Suez Canal blockage. Indeed, one of the largest container ships in the world became wedged in one of the world’s busiest marine waterways, the Suez Canal, blocking billions of dollars’ worth of cargo from being transported out of the region. Such a blockage is devastating to the shippers of some commodities, such as food, that are highly perishable when subject to temperature abuses.
With DeltaTrak’s RTL Prime In-Transit Loggers, you will know where your shipment is and if it has suffered a temperature abuse. These loggers provide real-time data and reporting that is viewable in the cloud, helping you make immediate decisions when it comes to your shipments and providing valuable evidence for insurance claims. Trip information is accessible 24/7 from any internet-enabled device.
Recently, DeltaTrak released a data logger purpose-built for ocean container shipments. The FlashLink RTL Prime 3G-2T In-Transit Logger, Model 22367, includes a unique 15m/50ft external and internal sensor combination. One logger can monitor supply air temperature in real-time, while also recording temperature at the back of the container. This unique logger provides exporters with a comparison of the real-time supply air temperatures for the front and back of the container on a single graph—from a single logger. Comparing the supply air temperature to the carrier’s temperature data will help determine if cargo damage was caused due to reefer equipment performance or other possible issues, like air flow obstructions.
You can easily see if measurements are within a three-degree difference, and if your shipment was within proper contracted temperature limits. When there is a problem, this data is key evidence to expedite investigations for insurance claims. This logger also tracks location and light, automatically uploading this additional information to the cloud.
