Intuitive solution provides real-time visibility of cold chain without the complexity
LAKEWOOD, CO, September 25, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Mesa Labs, a leading developer of quality control solutions and monitoring technologies has today announced an advance in monitoring platforms for the transportation industry. The Infitrak Cellular Monitoring System builds upon 20 years of temperature data collection, compliance services, and IOT systems to offer a validated continuous monitoring platform made specifically for intermodal environments in the pharmaceutical and food industries. It offers both real-time geo-location and geo-fencing integrated with temperature and humidity monitoring into one cloud-based platform, alerting users when any deviation from the setting is triggered.
The sensor hardware is wireless and easy to install, requiring only minutes to mount the sensors, allowing for quickly adding monitoring capability to their current or new vehicles. This allows both asset-owned carriers and non-asset owned carriers to use the same system to monitor and report the status of their cargo.
Management of the sensors and data is managed via a validated cloud platform that complies with 21 CFR part 11, EU GDP and FDA FSMA compliance standards. The platform allows carriers to share data with their own clients while being alerted to potential issues before they happen. This enables customer service personnel to have the data they need to support customers. It also gives them the ability to expand their current fleet’s capabilities and service offerings with minimal cost and effort to enable a competitive advantage over non-tracked assets.
“We have worked closely with logistics companies to focus on how they want to improve visibility of temperature and time-sensitive shipments. This has resulted in enormous improvements to usability and data analysis versus other solutions on the market today,” said Patrick McGrath, head of cold chain packaging and transport monitoring for Mesa Labs. “We are incredibly excited with early feedback from customers.”
