Transportation Temperature Monitoring
Transport temperature monitoring solutions
Transportation temperature monitoring solutions are important because your temperature-controlled supply chain is critical to product quality and safety. Our customers are striving for an uninterrupted sequence from production to storage and distribution. One of the biggest challenges in the chain is often transportation temperature monitoring due to a range of logistical variables.
Our transport temperature monitoring data loggers provide customers with added reassurance that environmental conditions have been monitored and recorded throughout the entire supply chain. Whether you are looking to protect temperature sensitive food products or pharmaceutical products we have the right logger.
Our SenseAnywhere system is cloud-based and can encompass temperature monitoring throughout several elements of your supply chain. Using the robust, compact AiroSensors and discreet 'access points' it is possible to build up a wireless network that covers your process end-to-end. This system is 'hands-off' and offers many benefits from a reporting and auditing perspective with a seamless chain of data available to view in the cloud from a smart device anywhere in the world. All of these amazing benefits make it the ideal system for transport monitoring.
Monitoring Medicine Temperatures in Transit
One example of regulations that are in place for temperature monitoring in transit is for Medicines. The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) says that global supply chain is regarded as a storage area by regulators. Therefore, regulations have been altered as a result of this, with the EU GDP Guidelines that were put in place in 2013.
Chapter 9 of the EU GDP Guidelines states that ‘It is the responsibility of the supplying wholesale distributor to protect medicinal products against breakage, adulteration and theft, and to ensure that temperature conditions are maintained within acceptable limits during transport. Regardless of the mode of transport, it should be possible to demonstrate that the medicines have not been exposed to conditions that may compromise their quality and integrity. A risk-based approach should be utilised when planning transportation. ’
Additional accessories for transportation temperature monitoring
Mobile GPS Access Point
The mobile GPS Access Point is a cellular modem and GPS receiver- it is perfectly suited for transport and remote locations. The mobile AccessPoint connects with the internet (via 2G and 3G) and has a GPS receiver module which enables you to locate your loggers and their current readings in real-time.
The SenseAnywhere SwitchHolder is an accessory which enables you to disable the programmed alarm function of your AiroSensor with a single sliding movement. Just insert your AiroSensor and slide to one side to either activate or disable the alarm notifications of that specific device. This accessory is ideal for environments with cooling systems that are not operational during specific times, i.e. nights or weekends and makes it perfect for transportation temperature monutoring. The SwitchHolder is compatible with the AiroSensor and AiroSensor T. The sliding motion only disables the alarm function which means data logging will continue and you won't miss the temperatures even if you forget to switch on the alarm back on.
