Cold Chain Technologies is Adding Quality Visibility for Their CustomersDownload
If you’re a logistics service provider (LSP), you understand that timely deliveries are as critical as ever. Packaging operations face similar challenges as they look to provide smart packaging that can track and monitor packages in transit. Access to an advanced supply chain operational platform enables your operation to keep up with competitors while maximizing profitability and increasing customer satisfaction.
At ParkerSC, our supply chain platform allows your business to increase operating efficiency by utilizing solutions to track your inventory accurately and track and monitor customer shipments for any potential disruptions. We leverage real-time sensors and contextual data on weather, traffic, strikes, or port congestion to create a more resilient and agile supply chain. We can create a custom smart packaging solution that adds value to your business by offering real-time location and quality tracking and tracing throughout the shipping process.
Since third-party logistics (3PL) companies have set themselves apart with innovative methods to become more intelligent and increase efficiency, competing businesses must adopt similar strategies to offer services that go above and beyond traditional customer expectations. When you implement ParkerSC’s supply chain solution, you provide your customers real-time shipment visibility, improve delivery times, and reduce their overall shipment costs. End-to-end shipment monitoring enables tracking and tracing of your products throughout the entire shipment cycle. Any disruptions to shipments can be predicted and the customer alerted for quick recovery.
ParkourSC’s supply chain solution for LSPs can track signals from any system or sensor to indicate early warnings of potential transit delays. Combined with historical shipment data, this real-time information allows AI models or workflows to adjust the supply chain to minimize disruptions automatically. The portals provide customers and other stakeholders the ability to monitor potential delays.
For packaging functions, ParkerSC’s platform offers a comprehensive suite of services that provide transparency and visibility into customer shipments through digital portals. Our solutions can show precise product temperature, plus other critical packaging elements like humidity, shock, and other quality factors in real-time.
Sustainability is a top-level goal for many logistics and packaging companies, tracking waste and looking to reduce, recycle and reuse. ParkourSC’s operations solution can help you track your reusable packages, containers, and sensors globally. These assets can be tracked and managed to ensure they are reused and not dumped in landfills.
Additionally, the platform allows companies to track inspection, battery replacement, and maintenance schedules on sensors and shipping containers to extend the life of these assets. Asset tracking with reuse also reduces your costs for replacing these assets.
Our platform’s quality tracking helps to ensure your products are delivered on time to the precise location without any quality excursions. It can predict and monitor factors like thermal efficiency, tilt, shock, and other critical elements to identify issues and quickly alert your customers to potential problems in transit.
For cold chain logistics and packaging, this type of monitoring is required and helps your customers speed up any post-delivery quality inspections. Instead of waiting to download temperature data from a passive thermal data logger inside the shipment, your customers have the real-time data to ensure the product temperature never fell below -20C throughout the journey.
Our solutions also predict thermal efficiency and can allow you to recommend packaging designs, shipping containers, and delivery methods that are optimal for each product shipment to maintain quality standards during transit.
When you implement our supply chain solutions into your LSP operation, you can:
Provide visibility to your customers
Our software offers controlled visibility to stakeholders and customers, providing access to precise shipment conditions and locations.
Ensure quality and compliance
For cold chain shipments or other sensitive shipments, our real-time temperature, shock, humidity, tilt, or light track and trace capability allows you to predict and respond to excursions quickly.
Reduce your customer’s shipping costs
ParkourSC’s shipment monitoring data, combined with shipment costs and capacity predictions, allows you to recommend the best method to ship a certain product on-time and at the lowest cost.
Track supply chain assets
Our asset tracking allows you to track every sensor, package, and container so that they can be returned for reuse.
