Cold Chain Blog 2 - How The Vehicle Intelligence Hub Helps Ensure Cold Chain Compliance
As we’ve covered in our previous blog post on the topic, Cold Chain Compliance is essential for product safety, customer satisfaction, and cost savings. Routeique helps businesses minimize losses and ensures cold chain compliance.
Our suite of tools help:
identify malfunctioning equipment and temperature fluctuations before it leads to product loss
generate reports to analyze and prove your cold chain compliance
specify products’ temperature requirements
The latest addition to our suite of tools to help your business maintain cold chain compliance is the Vehicle Intelligence Hub (VIH), which was recently trialled with our friends at Birkby Foods.
Tracking Product Temperature With The VIH
The Routeique Vehicle Intelligence Hub works with the vehicles in your fleet to bring your vehicles into the Internet of Things (IoT) and helps to monitor the most important details of your fleet.
The Vehicle Intelligence Hub:
captures multi-zone temperature inside the vehicle
for example, you can track your refrigerator zone and freezer zone, your freezer zone and ambient zone, etc.
alerts you if vehicle doors are left open for too long, compromising your products
captures diagnostic information from the vehicle's Engine Control Unit through the J1939 Can BUS, which allows us to understand equipment failures with the engine and supporting systems
monitors vehicle location
monitors driving behaviour through the use of an accelerometer
This helps you:
catch equipment issues and potential malfunctions before they grow into serious issues which result in product loss
pinpoint exactly where problems arise in your supply chain
Connecting The Vehicle Intelligence Hub To Your Other Routeique Software
Monitoring assets is just one aspect of maintaining your cold chain compliance--to get the best results, you need to be able to analyze your data over time.
That’s why we made it easy for you to access asset and temperature data through the Digital Control tower.
You can also export relevant data in reports which can be analyzed for safety issues, or used to prove compliance to customers or government bodies.
