Kizy Tracking is launching its latest product update, which allows logistics and supply chain professionals to monitor temperature, humidity and geo-localization of their shipments with just one device. Especially food and beverage industry demand for a reliable shipment and regulatory compliance, ensuring humidity and temperature levels are within a very specific range. Here is why.

The importance of keeping perishables safe during transport

Have you ever considered throwing a third of your weekly shopping in the bin? No? Statistically however, that is exactly what happens. Food waste is a global problem. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that around 1.3 billion tonnes of food are thrown away every year. A considerable part of this already happens during transport: according to the FAO and the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), 14 % of the world’s food is lost or wasted after harvesting and before reaching the retail level.

During the entire transport, manufacturers and shippers are responsible for ensuring that food safety guidelines are met to preserve the food’s quality. This requires strong commitment and strict control at each stage of the transportation process. If the food arrives in a damaged condition, it will not only cost you a lot of money to replace and return the freight, but the customer’s dissatisfaction will also have an impact on your image as a business. Restoring faith and loyalty is hard work and can be highly expensive in the long run. Also, it is hard to prove who is responsible and liable for mistakes when cargo arrives in an unacceptable condition.

What causes humidity and why does it matter?

Monitor your humidity-sensitive goods from end-to-end with Kizy Tracking.
Temperature and humidity conditions of certain products must be kept within a specified range to comply with standard rules of shipping. This is particularly the case when it comes to food, but also applies to medicine and electronic components. So what happens if there is a deviation outside the given tolerance? Temperature and humidity are closely related to one another. The hotter the air, the more water it can hold. If the temperature drops, the relative humidity increases. At close to 100 %, the water starts accumulating around cold objects. The result is condensation, which can damage the product, minimize shelf‐life and commercial potential, and in the worst case, have a negative impact on the consumer’s health.

How to safely transport food and beverages with Kizy Tracking

The best and most efficient way to ensure that temperature and humidity sensitive products arrive safely, is to keep track of your shipments from end to end with the help of a supply chain monitoring solution. Kizy helps you control humidity and temperature in critical environments at regular intervals. If there is a deviation in location, temperature or humidity, you will receive an instant alert. This enables you to react immediately and identify issues that affect your cargo. We understand the complexity of processes involved in regulating and monitoring perishable shipments in the food industry. Therefore, all our products are subject to high standards. This is why our sensor is factory calibrated according to ISO/IEC 17025 to guarantee precise measurements and increased product safety. The data is transferred automatically and in real-time, which saves valuable time and labour. By means of Kizy’s API you can integrate data and information collected by the Kizy trackers directly into applications your customers are familiar with, making integration as simple as that.

Here are the benefits of Kizy’s humidity sensor at a glance:
