Fedex expands its cool chain service

MORE FedEx healthcare and life-science customers in Europe can now keep cool about their temperature-sensitive shipments.
The US delivery company has expanded its SenseAware service into 14 new countries across Europe, so that Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Poland and Germany can now stay one step closer to their most critical, high-value and time-sensitive shipments in near real-time.
In addition to location, the device monitors a shipment’s temperature, its light exposure, relative humidity, and shock and barometric pressure.
“SenseAware combines an online application with a multi-sensor device to provide customers that ship high-value or environmentally-sensitive products with near real-time visibility, insight and collaboration across their supply chains,” insists Carlo Novi, managing director, sales, healthcare solutions, for FedEx Express in Europe.
The SenseAware 2000 device supports a dry-ice probe, which monitors temperatures ranging from -80°C to +60°C (-112°F to +140°F) and a cryogenic probe which can monitor shipments from -195°C to +60°C (-319°F to +140°F).
As today’s global business environment becomes increasingly complex, information has never been more critical to organisations, notes Novi.
“Within the healthcare industry, the complexity of national and international regulations is growing and the logistical challenges are impacting every level of the delivery chain,” he adds.
