Smart Containers – the Greatest Breakthrough in Logistics
Globalization is a non-stop process and it is growing exponentially every other year. Global trade and economic interaction between large companies are the keystones of globalization. But all the trading operations need high-quality management which is represented by logistics. Speaking metaphorically, we can call logistics the top-manager of globalization.
Logistics is a complex process, it is not enough to deliver something from point A to point B as fast and as cheap as possible. The main thing is to save the quality of the goods which are being transported. Major logistics companies fail to transport temperature-sensitive goods like food or medicines because of lack of special equipment and mess with documents. There is a necessity to introduce a common standard to logistics, which can help companies manage documents.
New technologies enter our lives every other day. Like fluids, hey pervade in every sphere of human activity. The blockchain is a young technology, but it is committing a real revolution today. The perfect combination of Blockchain and logistics is the Swiss-based company called Smart Containers Group.
The company is producing special temperature containers to transport temperature-sensitive goods. Currently, Smart containers Group has two subdivisions: SkyCell and Food Guardians. The further has become the fourth leading pharmaceutical transporting service in the world during the last few years. The latter is being under its final development. Both SkyCell and Food guardians are worthy of taking a closer look at.
This company is aimed to save lives with the use of Blockchain. Somebody may say that “save lives” sound too dramatic, but I wouldn’t agree. Vaccination helps to save lives of children and adults all over the world. As for me, it is the best achievement of the whole medical science.
But unfortunately, bad transportation conditions lead to degradation of vaccines up to 40%. It means that a vaccine is 40% as weak and won’t help an organism to build a strong immunity against a disease.
Pharma Containers produced by Skycell allow only 0,1% temperature deviation with the temperature rate outside the container from -35 to +65 degrees. This is a life-changing solution which helps people all over the world have access to the best existing medicines.
The containers are equipped with IoT software sensors and connected to the data cloud. So it is possible to monitor every container remotely, in order to make sure that all the quality standards are being kept to while transporting.
Food Guardians is a young subdivision of Smart Containers Group. It is aimed to transport food worldwide in reusable and temperature sensitive containers. Such equipment will keep any product fresh as if it has arrived from a farm.
Together with Food Guardians, there will be no need to add any chemicals to fruit, vegetables, meat or dairy products. The level of temperature or humidity inside containers can be tracked from anywhere in the world.
Smart Containers Group has been going through its crowdfunding stage now in order to support Food Guardians project.
