Cold Chain Blog 2 - How The Vehicle Intelligence Hub Ensures Cold Chain Compliance

How The Vehicle Intelligence Hub Ensures 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. 

This enables you to:

  • 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. 



Putting It All Together 

Whether you’re looking for a better way to track your assets while they’re in the field or a 360-degree solution for your cold chain compliance, Routeique is here to help.
