Emerson helping to safeguard the world's food supply

pak

Emerson recently announced its extension and leadership in cold chain management with the acquisitions of PakSense and Locus Traxx. Already a leader in serving the global container shipping and food retail industries, Emerson has included PakSense and Locus Traxx in a newly formed business focused on cargo-based solutions.

Emerson Cargo Solutions provides end-to-end monitoring services to help safeguard the world’s food supply, reduce energy costs and automate processes. The company is a one-stop shop for cold chain monitoring, providing components that can be leveraged to monitor all perishable supply chain segments.

Recently released, UltraNFC loggers monitor time and temperature of perishable items during transportation and storage, and then transfer this data via short-range near field communications to supported Android devices. Using the free mobile app,  the UltraNFC labels provide quick and easy data downloads for anyone monitoring the cold chain from anywhere in the world.  

SmartTraxx GO trackers allow users to monitor goods in real-time, protecting valuable assets as they move through the supply chain. The latest in the GO product line is the GO XL Lux, ideal for tracking longer shipments. The GO XL Lux features a more robust battery and light-sensing technology that alerts users when products are at risk and records when doors are opened.
