Selecting the Best In-Transit Real-Time Logger for Your Needs

Whether you’re shipping by truck, ship, or plane, it’s more important than ever to know where your shipment is and whether it has suffered any environmental abuse. Throughout the globe, supply chain bottlenecks and delays continue with no near-term end in sight. To help you get visibility into your shipment location and condition, DeltaTrak has released a series of real-time in-transit loggers.

With these real-time loggers (RTL), you will know the temperature, humidity and location of your products in real-time. A light sensor offers an extra layer of security during your shipments. You will be able to receive automated alerts when temperature excursions occur and track delivery routes in real-time via the FlashTrak cloud. This cloud service enables you to see real-time conditions in a shipping container or truck as well as real-time route information. Flight mode allows for logger use on airplanes. These in-transit loggers also offer the benefits of a “2-in-1 logger” with both real-time reporting and a PDF backup report when there's no cellular service available.

DeltaTrak’s real-time in-transit loggers are easy to use and are included on a highly visible shipping card or sleeve which makes the units easy to locate inside a trailer, container or airplane. Each unit comes charged and ready-to-use. Shippers can simply start the logger with the one-button activation and place it in their loads.

This new line of FlashLink® Real-Time In-Transit Data Loggers is designed to save you time via better management of delivery routes and reduce labor with automated monitoring. You can also archive data for FSMA, HACCP and regulatory compliance.

So which FlashLink real-time in-transit data logger do you choose? It really depends on your type of shipment and what you want to monitor. While all FlashTrak In-Transit Loggers provide location information and monitor temperature and light, the 22369 model also monitors humidity and shock. The FlashTrak 22367 RTL In-Transit Logger has been purpose-built for ocean container shipments to allow you to simultaneously track two temperature points in the ocean container. For monitoring ultra-low temperatures during storage and transport using dry ice or liquid nitrogen, you might choose the FlashTrak 22368 RTL Cryo In-Transit Logger. Different RTL in-transit models are available for 15, 60 and 90 day trip duration. Some models come with shipping cards and others with utility sleeves.

  • DeltaTrak’s Real Time Loggers have been a game changer for our trucking program. Having the ability to monitor temperature while trucks are in transit has given us peace of mind knowing the quality of our product has not been compromised. The alert notifications, light sensors, and GPS tracking are just some of the great features that have allowed us to make pro active decisions that have strengthened the integrity of our product. The FlashTrak Cloud Service is easy to use and is a great tool to compare and analyze data. The FlashTrak App is super convenient as well. We have used other reliable DeltaTrak products for many years and we were excited to see these added to their lineup!

  • When it comes to making sense of data (in the supply chain) we have found a partner in DeltaTrak. The fact that I could recharge the real-time logger and the dual batteries made a lot of sense to me. It was user friendly and easy to use. With the uncertainty and complexity of today's supply chain, having an effective chain of custody system is not only a clever idea, but a requirement for effective handling of perishable goods.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend DeltaTrak to your company. During these times of crisis, we were fortunate to work with DeltaTrak to source top of the line Non-Contact forehead thermometers and PPE supplies at a real market price.

    As a healthcare organization, we are a common target for price gouging and abusive practices from several vendors. With DeltaTrak, we found a partner that understands our needs and who always provide world class customer service.

  • Dear Fred, I would like express my appreciation for the good business relationship we have had during 2018. The excellent work of Mr. Jorge Hurtado has given me the confidence to continue maintaining our commercial relationship with the DeltaTrak brand.

    Mr. Jorge Hurtado's customer service efforts are outstanding, especially in finding solutions to the challenges that may arise in the commercial process. In my opinion Mr. Hurtado's professionalism is a model for any company, especially when the client is thousands of kilometers away from Modesto, CA. I look forward to strengthening our successful relationship into 2019.

  • This upcoming fall will mark our 4th full season using DeltaTrak recorders. They are competitively priced and the customer service is always exceptional. We have never had a customer issue with one of their units and we don’t expect to. We use a wide range of DeltaTrak products and we have been more than happy with every one of them.
