Knowing that a cold chain is broken usually triggers a series of responses — calling the driver, ascertaining why the temperature fluctuation occurred, and dispatching a recovery vehicle if necessary, for example.

But what if there’s no response from the driver?
Is the driver’s phone switched off?

While temperature is an important parameter to evaluate the health of a cold chain shipment, it’s not necessarily the only one. If all you had was temperature data, you wouldn’t be able to tell if cold chain products that are sensitive to light, humidity, vibration, or several other factors, completed their journey without incident.

Considering what’s usually transported through cold chains — fresh produce, meat products, pharmaceutical compounds, and delicate vaccine vials — the extra dimensions that you monitor could help you determine your cold chain shipment’s health more accurately.
