Cold chain management solution

With growing consumer concern over product traceability, quality and safety, it is vital for companies to adopt an efficient and reliable cold chain monitoring and management system throughout the whole supply chain. This not only ensures the quality and safety of environmentally-sensitive goods (such as perishable food and wines) but also greatly enhances brand integrity and performance, as well as operational efficiency. 

GS1 Hong Kong's RFID-based Cold Chain Management Solution is an effective and reliable tool to help stakeholders in the supply chain to optimise logistics management. Empowered by the global traceability platform ezTRACK and RFID sensor tags embedded in logistics units, full traceability and temperature condition can be achieved to assure product quality and safety during the whole logistics process.

Its functions and benefits include: 

  • Monitoring temperature and humidity – The solution monitors real-time variations of temperature and humidity at different points of the supply chain with the RFID tags embedded in the logistics units.  In case of incidents, alerts will be sent out and the unit where the incident occurs will be identified.  This guarantees freshness and safety of the goods.
     
  • Full traceability and visibility – Data on temperature, humidity, time and location is generated during the tracking and tracing process of shipments along the supply chain, to provide end-to-end visibility and help stakeholders manage the logistics process;
     
  • Sharing real-time information – Comprehensive real-time information such as temperature, humidity, time and location is shared among trading partners and customers globally through ezTRACK traceability platform;
     
  • Enhancing operational efficiency – Data generated from RFID tags can serve as an electronic record of delivery and thus speeds up the billing process. Information on temperature, humidity and location is also generated to facilitate data analysis, location mapping and inventory management
     
  • Reducing food waste – As the solution ensures product quality and improves product safety, waste and financial losses caused by disposal of spoiled goods will be reduced.
