Tailor-Made Solution Using Touchless Technology Results in 40% Time Savings on Operations

Explore how a leading logistics company uses our NFC technology to save 40% in costs and increases temperature scanning time

Company

DHL, the leading global brand in the logistics industry, hiring around 360,000 employees all over the world, and providing services for more than 220 countries, puts much effort to assure that temperature-sensitive shipments are transported within authorized conditions.

DHL services are crucial for companies from different sectors including FMCG, medical, pharma (eg. vaccins, drugs), biochemical, etc.

Problem

Maintaining high quality of transported products is one of the most important challenges for the entire logistic sector.

DHL was looking for a system that could enable them to monitor storage and transport conditions of perishables in an easy and efficient way.

Tailor-Made Solution Based on Touchless Technology

After testing several different solutions, the DHL SmartSensor team elaborated a tailored system based on the NFC technology in cooperation with our company.

Blulog’s NFC temperature loggers, integrated in the DHL SmartSensor solution for temperature-controlled shipments, are preprogrammed with specific shipment and stability information. The measuring process can be activated either by pushing a manual START button directly on the logger or by clicking a virtual start button directly from the app.

During transportation, the tracker uses fully calibrated sensors with ± 0.2°C precision between 0 and 30°C for temperature tracking. At any time, a simple read-out with a smartphone or special designed reader equipped with the NFC technology enables the recipient to check the whole temperature history and potential temperature breaches.

In case of any breach, a red diode switches on and alerts the recipient of a problem.

In total, the NFC logger is read out at least 4 times during the journey, assuring the final customer regularly that the temperature-sensitive product is transported in the correct conditions. Once a readout takes place all data is uploaded and stored safely in a cloud database, which is accessible to the customer.

Cold Chain Traceability System that Save Costs

With precise temperature and itinerary data, the solution creates a cold chain traceability on the package level which assures high quality and safety of the transported products.

Automatic proofs of delivery allows to immediately have access to the entire history which is helpful especially in case of any temperature-related doubt or argument. The intuitive interface and simplicity of use of the NFC technology make the solution universal and ready to be used.

Blulog loggers allow to create new standards on the international level, without the necessity of altering the procedures already existing in the company. Universality of use, small size and its easy way to integrate it with other solutions and procedures makes the device ideal to be used in any kind of temperature-controlled logistics.

DHL SmartSensor has already purchased several thousand units of NFC loggers to monitor temperature-controlled shipments and will further extend its business engagement.
