Key features

Key features of Webfleet Cold Chain

Monitor all your temper­at­ure-con­trolled vehicles and trailers and see their latest temperature status. Whether your fleet is trans­porting vaccines or temperature sensitive food goods, you can quickly validate that the cargo is at the correct temperature and minimise claims from damaged goods with the Webfleet Cold Chain solution.1

Cold Chain real time notific­a­tions

Real-time notific­a­tions

Alerts help you react to critical temperature events when a temperature in the vehicle exceeds either maximum or minimum thresholds. Temperature sensor thresholds are fully config­urable. You set the thresholds based on the acceptable temperature range for cargo under your care. You’re in control.

Temperature violation events

Get to the root cause of critical situations with an overview of all temperature violation events. Investigate, where and why the temperature exceeds set thresholds, and zoom into detailed event analyses by vehicle. Prevent future temperature violations with monitoring data from your cold chain transport.

Monitor doors and cooling unit status

Digital inputs show door status (OPEN/CLOSE) and cooling unit status (ON/OFF), helping you and your drivers to react quickly to situations where the cold chain could be broken. An OPEN door or OFF status can impact the temperature in your vehicle negatively and create issues for your cargo.

Location data

Pinpoint the exact location of temperature events to bring trans­parency to your cold chain operations. This information gives you insight into the temperature changes throughout your journey, which helps you determine if your cargo will still be of good quality once arriving at the destination. Under­standing temperature variations is crucial for ensuring the preser­vation of the cargo's quality. Location information is detailed for each temperature record, along with map trace view.2

Access to historical temperature data

Temperature data is archived for up to one year and available to view directly or via downloadable reports. This gives you, your customers, and compliance authorities, the definitive proof that there was no break in the cold chain.

All you need to know about cold chain

What is cold chain?

Jump to content

Cold chain is a supply chain that is temper­at­ure-con­trolled at every stage of the supply chain, from manufac­turing and storage to distri­bution and retail. Products that involve a cold chain are for example: vaccines, chemicals, food such as fish, meats and dairy products. There are many parts to the cold chain: the factory or the farm where the goods are produced; trans­porting the goods to storage and trans­porting them onwards again for final delivery to customers. Refri­gerated fleets play a vital role in maintaining the safety and quality of transported goods.

What are examples of cold chain transport?

Jump to content

All goods transported in the cold chain are temperature sensitive. Examples of products that require cold-chain transport include food, medicine, vaccines, chemicals, plants and medical equipment. Such goods must be transported within certain temperature ranges.

What is cold chain management?

Jump to content

Cold chain management is ensuring the safety and quality of temper­at­ure-sens­itive products. Cold chain fleets achieve this by keeping cargo at consistent temper­atures throughout the transport process. In the case of a temperature event, a fleet manager should be able to act quickly to avoid damaged goods.

What are the benefits of cold chain management?

Jump to content

The main benefit of cold chain management is protecting the integrity of cargo. The wrong temperature during transport leads to damaged and rejected goods, lost profits and unhappy customers. In some cases, faulty temper­atures can even pose risks to people’s health. With proper cold chain management, fleets avoid compliance issues and reputa­tional damage.

What is cold chain logistics?

Jump to content

Cold chain logistics is a process by which the transport of temper­at­ure-sens­itive goods is managed along a supply chain, from production to consumption. Cold chain fleets strive to maintain a controlled and consistent temperature environment, which ensures the quality and safety of cargo throughout transport.

How to monitor your cold chain?

Jump to content

It’s essential to understand the root cause of a temperature issue. Otherwise, you can’t really figure out a proactive response. Getting to the root cause requires seeing where, when and why an event took place. That’s why fleets are increas­ingly adopting cold chain telematics, which provides real-time temperature status and vehicle location data.

Which temper­atures are used in cold chain transport?

Jump to content

Various temper­atures are used in cold chain transport. Fleets must maintain certain ranges for whatever categories of cargo they carry. For instance, the general range for frozen goods is -18°C to -20°C. The regulation of cold chain temperature rules can vary between different regions and is often influenced by factors such as climate, industry standards, and regulatory bodies. European Pharma­co­poeia and WHO define temperature ranges: Deep-freeze: below -15°C, Refri­gerator: 2°C to 8°C, Cold: 8°C to 15°C, Room temperature: 15°C to 25°C. Critical for product storage. Fleets must therefore stay current with the regulations for the areas in which they transport temper­at­ure-sens­itive goods.
