Cargo Condition Monitoring to Ensure Product Quality

Cargo condition and quality monitoring are essential for quality assurance, compliance, and logistics performance monitoring and optimization. Using data from real-time cargo monitoring allows you to streamline quality control processes, minimize product rejection by customers or internal quality control, minimize the impact of quality issues on consumers, and minimize operational costs.

Gain transparency into your supply chain to ensure product quality and efficient operations

Cargo condition monitoring reveals what’s happening to the cargo while in transit protecting high-value and sensitive cargo ensuring product quality or freshness  

Real-time cargo monitoring reveals what’s happening to the cargo while in transit in between logistics milestones. Monitoring the condition of cargo in transit verifies the quality of incoming components and monitors the fulfillment of safety and environmental regulations. The insights from cargo monitoring help to coordinate supply chain processes more efficiently and optimize them to increase agility in resolving issues, minimize costs, and increase operational efficiency.

Identify the cause of quality issues

Use data and analytics to maintain both the product and process quality, assess the performance of the parties involved in transportation, increase agility in resolving issues, minimize operational costs, and increase efficiency. Use historical data to investigate the causes of quality issues, was is incorrect packaging, exposure to high temperatures or humidity, or negligence from transport providers.

Optimize quality control and inspection

Monitoring cargo condition for parameters that can compromise product quality optimizes the inspection process. Instead of inspecting every single container upon arrival, the quality assurance team can only inspect containers where the temperature or humidity exceeded predefined thresholds while the cargo was in transit.

React immediately to disruptions, develop contingency plans

Assert greater control over your supply chain by using real-time updates on the status and condition of your cargo and act immediately to disruptions minimizing waste and product recalls. Monitor cargo conditions such as internal temperature, humidity, shocks, and predicted delays; get real-time alerts on any deviation and trigger risk mitigation efforts in case you assume damage to the cargo.

Build loyalty with your customer and consumers

Achieve greater trust and loyalty by sharing constant real-time updates among all stakeholders involved in the supply chain. With full and reliable visibility into your supply chain, your customers can gain confidence that your company takes product quality safety seriously. Real-time information can help organizations avoid the harmful effects of inferior quality products or recalls

A complete cargo monitoring service

consisting of three components

Data through monitoring devices

Monitoring devices are attached to the cargo at the point of loading and collect information while the cargo is in transit. They transmit data in real-time to the analytics platform. Devices measure humidity, temperature, light, shock and GPS location.

Data analytics and notifications

In case of disruptions, notifications with actionable information are provided to clients. To support the decision-making process, Arviem’s data analytics platform provides both a quick picture on the cargo in transit and in-depth analyses and visualization of the supply chain helping to uncover inefficiencies and logistics blind spots.
