Why Smart Temperature Management Needs To Be A Priority For Your Supply Chain

In the era of connectivity, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are being deployed throughout the supply chain to actively monitor a key factor to food loss and waste: temperature fluctuations. According to the above FAO report, fruits and vegetables account for 21.6% of the total food lost, and roots, tubers and oil-bearing crops account for 25.3%. It’s estimated that just under half (46.9%) of these instances can be mitigated through temperature monitoring solutions. Through the deployment of a low-power and long range (LoRa) IoT solution, real-time temperature monitoring can occur at different levels in the supply chain. Read more
