In different industries, such as health, pharmacy or grocery’s, the transport of products requires an exhaustive monitoring of the cold chain. Aware of this need, Correos has implemented a new service, Correos Frío, offering several logistics solutions to our customers which allow both business and people to send items under monitored temperature.
The service is based on the application of different innovations added to the traditional system of Correos parcels. One of them is the use of isothermal boxes for the transport of these parcels. The boxes are deep inside “sensorised” to monitor temperature, humidity and possible impacts on real time. Moreover, the openings of the isothermal box can be also possible from origin to destination, by ensuring a total monitoring of the cold chain of the product.
By using IoT technology, these boxes communicate with a Correos platform which monitors every single item. Thus, in the event of any incidence during the transport, some reactive actions on these parcels can be performed by Correos before delivering. According to the needs of each product or industry, our customers can hire several categories of temperature for the transport. This ensures a total monitoring of the cold chain in very different situations under the highest reliability.
Thus, all customers can check the temperature of their products at any time, can keep it within the selected category up to 120 hours, and keep the monitoring thanks to an alert system against any variation of the cold chain.
