The cold chain has specific needs over and above traditional supply chain efficiencies and monitoring capabilities. Food safety legislation coming into force in the next year increases demand for improved monitoring of temperatures and audit trails. The internationalization of food supply also equates to greater complexity in maintaining uniformity of quality standards. Sensor-based logistics is seeking to establish a place in market efforts.

This Research Note explains the impact of legislation and market trends on IoT use in the cold chain, the benefits of multi-sensor devices, and new solution initiatives.
