Island delivery - smart cold chain monitoring for complex transport routes

Cold chain monitoring of food deliveries over several transport stations

The requirements in the area of temperature monitoring have increased greatly in the past.
Manual activities to maintain the cold chain are expensive, time-consuming and can be incomplete.
Avoidable activities of employees such as manually checking and performing temperature records are increasingly automated in food logistics companies.
Errors in the processes can only be detected if the data basis is sufficient and as accurate as possible.
Temperature deviations can cause unnecessary additional costs and lead to food waste.


A sustainable and quickly implementable option for the food transport sector is the 4smartlogistics solution.

Temperature control without manual effort


No longer perform temperature checks of your cold chain by hand. With the Thermotracker TX4.0 and its comprehensive IoT platform, you can fully automate the insertion and readout of temperature data loggers.
Avoid recording errors and always have the location and route of your containers in view with the smart temperature recording solution for food transport.

Data is automatically recorded and regularly sent to the cloud-based IoT-platform.
A variety of reports are available to customers on this platform, which can be used as evidence for quality management and for external checks such as audits or by customers through customisable reports and documents that can be sent automatically.

Advantages for freight forwarders and their customers:


  • Retrofitting of the container fleet possible
  • Quickly implemented installation
  • No energy supply necessary
  • Reduction of manual efforts by employees
  • Assurance of delivery quality
  • Documents for external quality verification (customer & audits)

Function of the solution at a glance:

  • HACCP compliant temperature measurement
  • Temperature curves assigned to deliveries
  • Route recording
  • Locations of insulated containers
  • Data available at all times
  • Inventory monitoring of the entire vehicle and container fleet
  • Standard and customisable reports
  • Exportable data to PDF documents or Excel reports
