Press Release Summary: Genesis Communications xTrack solutions help businesses to effectively manage and monitor their cold chain operations.
Press Release Body: Using the latest technology, xTrack cold chain monitoring enables businesses to offer an ultra-reliable refrigerated logistics service and comply with the latest EU regulations. EN 12830:1999 states that all cold chain businesses are now required to monitor the exact temperatures of chilled goods throughout the delivery cycle. Cold chain management allows you to monitor precise temperatures of refrigerated cargo together with the exact location of your vehicles.
How does it work? 1) Sensors in the refrigerated trailer send precise temperature information to the xTrack Vehicle black box in the tractor unit every 5 minutes. 2) This device then sends back temperature data as well as precise location to web based servers which customers can access through a web interface. This enables customers to easily monitor and report on the information and can be accessed from the user's desktop from the customer portal of the Genesis website. 3) Drivers can be instantly notified if temperatures move beyond certain thresholds, so that immediate action can be taken.
Prior to this, drivers would have to wait for the end of a journey for a print out to show a change in temperature. This could result in an entire load being subject to spoilage. xTrack Cold Chain has been specifically designed to withstand the rugged logistics environment. The sensor\'s battery lasts over a year with annual battery replacement and calibration included in the cost of the solution, along with installation.
