Cold chain logistics: Benefits of temperature monitoring!

Being in a country where an individual’s average wallet spends on food & medicine accounts for almost 30% of his earnings, it becomes imperative for us to provide quality products at economical prices. Cold Chain Logistics is playing a key role here. It ensures zero contamination and degradation of the product right from the factory to the end-user.

What gets measured, gets managed!

 

We all are aware of the huge investments one puts in to get logistics and supply chain channels in place. But still, we don’t realize the importance of an efficient monitoring tool to track the benefits from it.

Spoiled products in both food and medical category can lead to serious consequences of health and wellbeing and thus, these industries are now moving towards cold-chain logistics. Few examples from different industries stating the need for cold-chain logistics are as follows:

  • Frozen desserts should always be kept at or lower than the temperature of -12 deg C. Beyond this range, they get changes in body, texture and flavor characteristics. When icecream’s small crystals melt and refreeze, they can eventually turn into large, unpalatable lumps.
  • Frozen food should always be maintained at or lower than -18 deg C. In case there is an increase in temperature beyond this range, food becomes discolored and loses its vitamin content and even maintaining the temperature again will not correct this damage.
  • The recommended temperature range for storing heat-sensitive drugs in the cold chain is between 2 to 8 deg C. These products are extremely sensitive to temperature range. They can easily go beyond 8 degrees in less than 4 minutes so it is extremely important to have real-time monitoring for healthcare products.

 

 

Despite the facilities of the cold chain being in place, India still doesn’t have the right infrastructure to support its full-time functioning. Thus, it is not only important to maintain the temperature in cargos/warehouses but it is equally necessary to define temperature compliant parameters too. These include acceptable temperature and humidity range, the margin of error that can be tolerated, acceptable levels of risk, etc. By monitoring these parameters using real-time reports, we can ensure that corrective actions can be taken immediately.
