Rehrig Pacific Co., Los Angeles, and Intelleflex, Santa Clara, Calif., formed a strategic solution partnership to improve the quality and traceability of temperature-sensitive products in the cold supply chain. The partnership will create intelligent reusable transport packaging solutions that enable food manufacturers, shippers and retailers to improve how they manage cold chain operations.
The technology will deliver on-demand data visibility for proactively tracking and monitoring the temperature and condition of temperature-sensitive products, such as fresh, frozen and packaged foods. Products can be monitored and managed on-demand through the cold chain without requiring the unloading of pallets or opening of containers, while also addressing government and industry regulations for traceability, safety and quality. Using ZEST Data Services, personnel are alerted to real-time changes in temperature and other environmental factors that can impact the integrity of the shipment and potentially expose customers and an organization to significant risks relating to quality and safety.
“Temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and food manufacturers require intelligent cold chain management systems for safety and profitability,” says Kaley Parkinson, national sales manager of Rehrig’s supply chain technology solutions. “Partnering with Intelleflex on intelligent transport packaging solutions and ZEST Data Services will provide measurable value and logistical benefits to cold chain operations. We are pleased to work with Intelleflex to assist with our ongoing pursuit of continuous improvement for our customers.”
