A fruit grower is deploying an RFID solution enabling the company to view the temperature of the fruit packed at its processing facility, as well as record temperature fluctuations in a truck while the products are transported, and monitor the temperature in real time once more at a retailer’s distribution center. Trays of fruit are loaded onto pallets and shipped on the same day they are picked. Before the pallets are loaded onto trucks, tags are placed on top of the trays of fruit, which are then moved through a precooling process before being shipped on the same afternoon. Find out how the firm was able to catch temperature problems as they occur and thus reduce spoilage.
