Transportation

A complete solution for monitoring the food temperature and location of trucks and ships transporting food in real-time.

Food transport and distribution face a massive challenge: Ensuring that the food is kept at the right temperature throughout the entire process to avoid spoilage. Furthermore, new Federal regulations require accurate record keeping showing the food was kept at the right temperature through the journey. When food is being shipped from one location to another, time-temperature records must be kept in accordance with the Sanitary Transportation section of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

 

TeleSense solution for food safety meets the requirements of FSMA and then some. TeleSense solution continuously monitors the temperature, humidity and other parameters of the food during travel and issues instant alerts via SMS and emails if any parameter gets out of user-defined acceptable range.

 

TeleSense solution also tracks the location of the truck or ship transporting the food. Complete records are maintained showing the entire route and also where the vehicle stopped and for how long.

 

In addition, to validate the food processing or movement through a facility, companies will often manually undertake “marked product studies” to ensure that every process is meeting quality and safety requirements. We automate this process.

 

How Do We Do It

TeleSense’s solution uses the latest IoT technology to monitor the temperature and humidity of the food and send the data to the cloud for storage and processing. Telesense’s proprietary TeleSensors are a family of small battery-powered or plugged-in sensors that can be placed in the cooler or container, where the food is being stored during transportation. TeleSensors continuously monitor the food temperature and humidity and communicate with an on-board wireless gateway that sends the temperature data to the cloud for storage and automatic processing.

If at any time, the temperature or humidity gets out of the accepted user-defined range, real-time alerts are instantly generated via text and email alerting the personnel to take immediate corrective action and save the food from spoiling.
