Products with a shelf life can be adversely affected during freight. Cold storage of goods is essential when transporting perishable products - for example, fish and meat food products need to be safeguarded before reaching the consumer. Security during transit is also extremely important and can incur high insurance costs. Temperature sensors and vibration sensors can feed vital signs to a portal - updating the control centre with the status of shipments in transit. Tracking devices can keep check on location and indicated arrival times of shipments throughout the journey of a product - from source, to warehouse, to retail store, to the consumer.
