Keeping food at the correct temperature is critical, and yet, we assume that items are handled appropriately … from the source to the table. But when a problem occurs … such as an illness … or worse, a major food-borne epidemic … who is responsible? The answer is … YOU … which can include the supplier, the transporter, the warehouse, the grocery store or the restaurant. And the cost to isolate the source of the issue can be staggering.
Transportation providers – you can greatly minimize your risk by “seeing” the temperature of food products you are handling. With advanced technology that includes sensors and software, you can now see … in real-time …temperatures and movement of perishable food items. You can report critical FSMA items such as reefer ambient box temperature, door open/closed events and, of course, Product Temperature … when your reefers have this technology.
You may ask… are all these details that important? Believe it… yes they are! When thinking about minimizing risk and potential liability, having access to these real-time details is critical to avoiding costly loss of time, resources and potential claims. And why? The best time to dispute a delivery claim is while the trailer is still docked. And the best time to prevent a claim on a hot loaded product is at loading.
