Temperature Monitoring for Life-Saving Shipments

The Need: Real-Time Temperature Monitoring for Pharmaceuticals

A pharmaceutical company had launched a new class of healthcare products that were sensitive to temperature changes. To guarantee shipment quality they turned to Roambee for help to protect their shipments during transit to its seven distribution centers.

The Solution: Pay-As-You-Go "Bees" Provide Real-time Temperature Data

In less than a month, Roambee installed, tested, and verified a temperature-monitoring solution for the customer's seven distribution centers serving the continental U.S. Using a central web portal to manage information, the system monitors the cargo of 75 third-party trucks. Real-time data, including real-time alerts, enable the QA team to guarantee shipment quality.

Key elements of the Roambee solution:

  • Bees with long battery life provide accurate temperature and location monitoring for shipments.
  • On-demand service can quickly increase (or decrease) the number of Bees, as needed.
  • Roambee's web portal collects temperature and location data for shipments in real time and automatically.

The Roambee software and hardware solution replaced the customer's existing temperature loggers with sophisticated real-time temperature and location monitoring — without requiring new capital outlay. This is another example of how Roambee's next-generation technology and a pay-as-you-go business model make shipment monitoring scalable, affordable and controllable for companies in pharmaceutical and healthcare sector.
