"In today's market, post-harvest logistics require cutting-edge technology at affordable prices," stated Pablo Mugica, director of Ozeano. "One of the clearest examples is the real-time cold chain monitoring, which currently is only used to monitor certain products because of how expensive it is."
“Currently, there are numerous types of monitoring systems in the market, but none of them allows controlling numerous parameters in real-time and at affordable prices. And also manufactured in Europe,” stated Pablo Mugica.
This new control and monitoring system measure different crucial parameters: temperature, humidity, light, impact, vibrations, etc., it also shows the position of the merchandise through the GPS module. The customer can check this information from anywhere and at any time.
The great benefit of real-time monitoring is that it prevents losses. Once an incident is detected, the client can intervene and coordinate actions to avoid losing the load. This doesn't happen nowadays with traditional sensors, as the information they record is only read upon arrival.
“Let's put the case of strawberries from Huelva that are sent to Germany. If the cold chain is broken on the way, the client can call the transport company or the driver directly, so that the cargo be transferred, or sent elsewhere, or to notify his client about the delay, among other possibilities.”
“The advantages are numerous. It can be used in land, maritime, and air transport. Knowing what happens and when it happens is vital to make immediate decisions and to determine responsibilities. The information obtained from these long-term records provides a database for the improvement of transport conditions.”
"It also allows reducing waste from perishable products, which is fully aligned with SDG 13 and everything that is currently being discussed at the COP25 in Madrid," concluded Pablo Mugica.
