IoT for Cold
Chain Monitoring

Aeris has the dedicated infrastructure for the most demanding cold chain transport systems for food, pharma, and other perishable supply chains.

COLD CHAIN BRIEF

Intelligent Cold Cargo

An unbroken cold chain system can track and ensure the quality of goods from manufacturer to end user.

But cold chains are susceptible to mechanical breakdowns, traffic delays, theft, human error, and numerous other factors. With IoT cold chain monitoring systems, issues can be handled in real time, with an entire infrastructure reacting as a single unit. When you use IoT monitoring, cold cargo becomes ‘intelligent’ thanks to smart sensors and oversight capabilities.

Smart Cold Chain Management

Here’s how Aeris IoT connectivity can help you efficiently manage the storage, shipping, and distribution of products that need a temperature-controlled environment, such as farm fresh food or pharmaceuticals that have specific temperature range requirements.

Get Timely Alerts

Alert stakeholders instantly when there is damage to packaging, potential theft, delay, and more—cutting down on damage and waste.

Macro-Level Tracking

Device just checks in via satellite, registers with network, thereby limiting usage and extending battery life.

Measure Exact
Temperatures

Know the precise temperature of all your shipments, at all times. Monitor and change the temperature settings remotely.

React to Changes,
Damage, or Delay

React quickly to potential problems. Not only does this reduce disasters, but it also can help improve your relationship with clients.

See Previously
Invisible Problems

With IoT monitoring and data production, you quickly can discover (and react to) problems that you would not have seen before.

Activate Lockdown
Mode

Your IoT cold chain system can distinguish between normal transit and theft, and you can lock down and track your shipment accordingly.

Get Rapid Recovery

In the case of theft, you quickly can track asset location. This way, even a major problem doesn’t have to become a catastrophe.

A Smart Ecosystem for Perishable Goods

With a smart IoT ecosystem for cold chain supply systems, you can monitor, locate, and address any potential errors quickly. Temperatures can be measured to exact degrees and correlated with acceptable norms for any given cargo. This allows the system to generate alerts for the driver and other stakeholders when there is an issue. IoT monitoring sensors can distinguish between being in transit and being stolen, even to the point of activating a ‘lockdown’ mode to reduce theft. And if cargo is stolen, recovery is rapid as it can be tracked to within inches of its location. Food, pharmaceuticals, and other perishable products can reach their destination undamaged in even the most extreme situations.

ACP has the dedicated infrastructure needed to meet even the most demanding cold chain transport system, where issues can be handled in real time, with an entire infrastructure reacting as a single unit.

Infrastructure is the Key

Smart devices and IoT systems won’t work effectively without excellent infrastructure and great connectivity. With its dedicated IoT infrastructure, Aeris provides world-class complete temperature monitoring oversight for pharma, farm produce, cold rooms, freezer rooms, cold transport venues, and warehouses. Aeris monitoring provides insights to real-time temperatures with in-depth data gathering, notifications, and alarms.
