A global air and ocean freight specialist is utilizing an RFID-based air-freight service allowing customers to track the temperatures of their goods throughout the shipping process, for such temperature-sensitive products as pharmaceuticals or biomedical items. The solution, employing UHF RFID tags with built-in temperature sensors applied to containers, enables customers to maintain a record of shipping temperatures, and to receive an alert if an exception occurs. When a package is delivered to the designated recipient, that information becomes available to the customer that originated the shipment, and that company can then log into the system, input a password and view all of the temperature readings. Learn how the system is being utilized by businesses ranging in size from a small biotech firm to a global pharmaceutical company.
