Created in 2015, the French/Polish company, blulog, offer very precise, small and affordable temperature data loggers. Their solutions have been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the food, pharma or logistics industries.
These 2G Data Loggers can track temperature during the whole journey of a specific shipment, and can even be integrated into isothermal boxes, providing inside and outside temperature. At the same time, the loggers reveal the GPS location of goods in transit so that users will know precisely when their shipment has arrived at its end destination.
What’s truly enervating for these individuals is that despite the Middle Kingdom operating some of the most spacious, high-tech airports, Chinese authorities err on the side of extreme caution when it comes to coordinating departures and arrivals with minutes (versus seconds) between aircraft and averaging some 43 minutes behind schedule every day, if not worse.
Supply chain managers can, of course, rely on more classic ports (i.e., seaports and harbours) in which to funnel goods, but this is not an option for the increasingly expensive, high-end products many in the growing middle class crave and is only truly profit-generating with low-cost, high-volume goods.
In order to overcome this barrier of time-consuming, hourly monitoring by your staff, ParceLive provides information on over seven shipment-specific factors via a live-location map. This translates into automated shipment status updates for consumers while simultaneously alerting customs officials of impending deliveries, which, ultimately, drives shared responsibility throughout the chain of custody and reduces the risk of ceased assets.
Hanhaa XG, the first mobile network developed with the unique needs of The Internet of Things in mind, have been providing the blulog team with data connectivity to support their 2G Data Loggers with a global reach. XG SIM cards are inserted within their IoT devices that then transmit data to the user regarding their shipment. The image below demonstrates how Hanhaa XG’s connectivity provides the 2G Data Loggers with the ability to report on the condition of shipments.
Hanhaa XG connectivity allows data to be passed from the IoT device to the blulog Cloud in a secure environment ensuring that with XG, blulog’s data never crosses the public internet. With the needs of the IoT in mind, we’ve made it easier to manage your SIMS with data plans managed across your network and not on a SIM by SIM basis.
Hanhaa’s ParceLive, a real-time parcel tracking service that connects users to live information about the location, condition and security of their assets, is also enabled by Hanhaa XG, supporting its communications network. The added security of XG means that those shipping expensive and sensitive items can rest easy knowing that their data is secure. As ParceLive trackers cross borders, hands and continents, users of ParceLive always retain a direct relationship with their shipment thanks to XG connectivity.
