food safety during transportaton

Meat, poultry, and egg products are susceptible to contamination from a wide variety of physical, microbial, chemical, and radiological agents. These products are particularly vulnerable to microbiological hazards because their moisture, pH levels, and high protein content provide ideal environments for the growth of bacteria. Because of these characteristics, the products must be carefully monitored … Continued

Understanding the Cold Chain Process

So what is the cold chain logistics? Cold chain logistics, also commonly referred to as cool chain logistics or chill chain logistics, is a temperature controlled supply chain. In short, it’s a transportation chain that maintains freight at an agreed upon temperature throughout the logistics process. Understanding the cold chain process is half the battle … Continued

Continuous Temperature Monitoring – Log Tag Solution

Temperature management of the food supply-chain is important for ensuring compliance and the quality of perishable products. Maintaining an optimal temperature in your Cold Chain Management is important. If the temperature falls above or below the optimal range, costly spoilage can occur. From meat or produce to ice-cream freezers, PIMM Log Tag wireless sensors continuously … Continued

Temperature Controlled Transportation

One of the biggest risks to foods in transit relates to the transport of foods that require temperature controls to limit pathogenic microorganism growth or toxin formation. In the regulation, FDA has clarified that the shipper is the one with the knowledge and responsibility to establish all preventive controls, including the temperature controls required during … Continued

Loading and Unloading

Loading and unloading can be the most critical and complex point in a temperature controlled supply chain. Transferring product from one location to another adds factors to the process that are often unmonitored. Fortunately technology is rapidly improving in this critical space. In addition to maintaining the temperature of the truck, warehouse, and product, shippers … Continued

Continuous Temperature Monitoring

The food processing industry spends a lot of effort in measuring and monitoring cold chain temperatures, be it during storage of raw materials, storage of finished product prior to shipping or storage in the distribution facilities. When a manufacturer has time and temperature under control, quality and safety issues don’t figure in until after the … Continued

Continuous Temp Monitoring

Temperature control is a critical food safety element, as it helps to prevent foodborne diseases and outbreaks that can result in public health issues. Fresh produce must be kept at 0–16 °C or colder, while frozen and deep-frozen foods must generally be held at 0 to -25 °C or colder. Temperature control is a critical … Continued

Cold Chain Management – efficiency, awareness, productivity.

The Internet of Things (IoT) allows the integration of customers, the front office, and supply chain operations to provide a more holistic picture of operational efficiency. IoT makes situational awareness possible through real-time, end-to-end supply chain visibility. It is a critical enabler of obtaining real-time insight into production performance, giving manufacturers the power to identify … Continued
