Zürich, Switzerland – November 15, 2016 – Arviem AG announced today that its real-time cargo monitoring service will be supporting Nestlé Ecuador’s cargo shipments.

Arviem’s market leading real-time cargo monitoring service will enable Nestlé Ecuador to verify the quality of its products while in-transit. Thanks to the smart data and insights provided by Arviem’s IoT technology based sensing devices, Nestlé Ecuador will be able to gain visibility to the journey of its products and identify inefficiencies in the supply chain resulting in reduced inventory and food waste as well as increased food safety.

Today when food supply chains are becoming progressively more globalized, cover greater distances and involve more suppliers, exposure of food products to various risk factors grows exponentially. During the times of the global food shortage when the production and distribution of food products is becoming a critical issue of the 21st century, the need of food manufacturers for supply chain visibility solutions is increasing.

“As the consumption habits of today’s population are changing, food safety and traceability have become a major concern of food producers. While in developing countries a large portion of the population has difficulties accessing food products, consumers in developed economies are getting more health conscious being worried about the content of their food, its origin, freshness and safety. Arviem’s real-time cargo monitoring helps Nestlé Ecuador and other food manufacturers to address these challenges” says Stefan Reidy the CEO of Arviem.

With Arviem’s intelligent sensing technology and its data analytics software food producers will not only be able to see the location of their products in real-time but also monitor the condition of these products. Improved supply chain visibility will enable manufacturers to optimize their supply chain processes and carry out smaller more targeted recalls leading to reduced food waste and inventory costs, prolonged shelf life of products and decreased amounts of write-offs due to expired products.
