Topic

Assuring the Integrity of Products in Transit: Integrated Solutions Available Today

There is nothing new in using active sensors to detect and send alarms when out of limits conditions are experienced by goods in transit. What is new is the ability to interpret the data collected to determine and report the cumulative effect of such events on the integrity of the products. Mr. Sharp's presentation will describe the integration of hardware and software technologies available today that can deliver this service to cargo handling for everything from vaccines to electronics to food products.
