The Use of GPS Tracker in Cold Chain Transportation

With the rapid development of China's economy and the improvement of people's living standards, the dependence on frozen food has become more and more heavy, which has fully stimulated the vigorous development of cold chain transportation. 

Cold chain transportation refers to the transportation in which the goods to be transported are always kept at a certain temperature during the whole process of transportation, whether it is loading and unloading, changing the mode of transportation, changing the packaging equipment, etc. It is a low-temperature transportation system project involving food safety and high technological content.

Problems with cold chain transportation

In practice, the biggest problem faced by cold chain transportation is that the temperature of the vehicle refrigerated or freezer is out of control during the transportation process.

On the way of cold chain transportation, in order to save costs, some drivers often turn on the refrigeration equipment for refrigeration as required after the customer loads the goods in the refrigerator. When you arrive at the destination, turn on the refrigeration equipment again for cooling, and you cannot guarantee the whole process of turning on the cooling device.

Frozen goods are delivered to customers and appear to be frozen well, but in fact, they are likely to have deteriorated. The root cause of this phenomenon is that the cargo owner has no effective monitoring means to obtain the temperature information of the cargo hold at any time.

What GPS trackers do

The magic of cold chain GPS can solve this problem very well. GPS works by installing temperature sensors in several temperature zones inside a refrigerated (frozen) vehicle. The refrigerated (frozen) in-vehicle temperature collected by the temperature sensor is transmitted to the GPS server through the wireless communication module of the vehicle-mounted GPS terminal. As long as the owner has access to the Internet, he can obtain accurate temperature information in the refrigerated (freezing) vehicle at any time through the monitoring platform, and can also output the temperature information in the refrigerated (freezing) vehicle to the report. In this way, drivers will not dare to shut down the refrigeration equipment at will, ensuring that the entire transportation is truly a "cold chain".

The shipper can strictly assess the carrier driver according to the final temperature report, and calculate the freight rate according to the temperature in the refrigerated (refrigerated) vehicle.

Application method

GPS's unique cold chain transportation vehicle temperature real-time acquisition system can flexibly output the temperature report and real-time temperature curve in the refrigerated vehicle, which is convenient for the whole process of temperature monitoring of the cold chain transportation link and ensures the temperature requirements of refrigerated transportation. 

For such a mode, controlling the temperature during transportation will control food safety and quality. Before the GPS cold chain transportation monitoring mode was used, the phenomenon of "cold chain" transportation not "cold chain" occurred from time to time, which greatly affected the quality of food. After using cold chain transportation monitoring, each vehicle has a complete temperature record, and according to the temperature record, specific requirements are put forward to the driver.

With the help of GPS, the container temperature of refrigerated (frozen) vehicles can be effectively collected and displayed on the Internet at any time. Through this technical means, the condition of the driver turning on the refrigerator during the whole process can be recorded, effectively preventing the driver from shutting down during transportation.
