Cold Chain Challenges

Loss of Coolers

CPG companies lose between 7 to 30% of their branded fridges, freezers and coolers yearly. Assets are typically lost at the point of sales when the outlets are closed down, relocated, the cooler goes defective and is wheeled out, stolen, or stripped down for spare parts.

Decreasing Asset ROI

The loss of coolers does not support sales. Without inventory transparency or assortment optimization, stock-outs occur that lead to revenue losses estimated up to 15% of SKU’s.

Regulatory Compliance

Biomedicine such as vaccines must be stored between 2 to 8 degrees C. Regulation requires manufacturers, pharmacies and hospitals to monitor and audit cold storage of their biomedicine stock in stock and during transportation. Pharmacies risk forced closure if EU or FCC compliance is breached multiple times.

Quality Assurance

Malfunctioning or defective coolers do not provide optimal product experience. Ice cream loses its texture and taste. Biopmedicine lose its medicinal effect. Agricultural produce, dairy, meat, fish and perishables such as florals go to waste or culture bacteria that cause sickness and product recalls.

Solutions

Each industry and sector have unique cold-chain productivity requirements, budget constraints, ROI expectations and usage scenario’s

Track & Trace

Monitor real time coolers at every point of sales. Integrate the data into your ERP, and access status and location data with any mobile device. Track your coolers even when they are unplugged.

Auto-fulfillment

Determine the inventory level of in-store coolers and replenish with the right assortment based on weather forecasts, seasonality and the geo-popularity of the location.

Increase cooler ROI

Optimize cooler locations. Measure and predict sales velocity. Reduce cooler management and (re)deployment costs.

Improve Brand Experience

The right product stored under optimal conditions delivers the intended brand and customer experience.

Manage risk

Monitor and report on your stock of biopharmaceuticals according to regulatory requirements. Learn immediately when coolers become inactive, or temparature storage limits were breached.

Stop spoilage

Connect and reclaim control of cold storage space and keep produce fresh for consumption.
