National postal service of Switzerland known as Swiss Post teamed up with blockchain company Modum. The latest partnership will help in order to build a temperature monitoring solution for shipments. The latest news was unveiled by the logistics news site Die Post recently.
Die Post confirms that Swiss Post has worked together with Modum, a blockchain as well as Internet of Things technology firm, as a tech partner to start a smart service. The smart service will be known as ThermoCare and it will be used to track the temperature of packages delivered by the Swiss Post.
This will allow the goods to be tracked, analyzed and recorded in the full course of their travel route. The solution is formed so that it can optimize the transport of pharmaceutical goods. By this, foods will reach a proper place and the solution will be useful for the entire food industry.
ThermoCare will utilize Modum's thermo-monitoring technology to assure that the goods are stored at a specific temperature during their transport. The goods will have proper temperature control and a log which lists all the changes in the temperature of the goods in real-time.
The temperature data can be accessed anytime using the system made by the firm. For this, the employee has just to scan the package using the technology, thus removing the need to open or unpack the quality of goods.
Using this tech, parties involved will be able to notice any type of temperature deviation instantly and will be able to identify which location or organization is liable for any problem regarding the quality management of the product.
Swiss Post and Modum's merger will finally result in a long-term co-operation, Die Post states.
As reported earlier, Swiss Post and state-owned telecom Swisscom teamed up to provide 100% blockchain infrastructure to the country. The latest infrastructure will be formed as a permissioned blockchain which will be formed by the two entities which will secure all the data inside the country.
In 2018, logistics giant Maersk teamed up with IBM and Danish transport to release their own global shipping solution which is going to form immutable records for supply chains. The solution is known as TradeLens which merges IoT and sensor data to allow tracking of variables such as temperature control and container weight.
