Playbook: How to Implement Real-Time Tracking of Valuable Perishables Shipments
According to the United Nations World Food Program, approximately $1 trillion worth of food is wasted each year because of mishaps and excursions throughout the cold chain. These losses result in diminished profits, inventory management issues, and potentially even legal claims for shippers, retailers, and cold chain logistics service providers alike.
The latest advancements in real-time shipment condition and location tracking technology have become essential tools to help shippers and retailers actively manage perishable shipments throughout the cold chain, and avoid costly losses and spoilage.
This playbook details how shippers and logistics service providers can most effectively implement real-time temperature, humidity, and GPS location tracking for perishable shipments, best practices for managing shipments using real-time location and condition tracking, and a real-life case study in which a leading produce importer saw immediate measurable ROI from adopting real-time visibility technology.
