Actionable Data Alerts for Temperature-Controlled Shipping

Shipping temperature-sensitive products such as perishable foods and pharmaceuticals require specific temperature ranges to be maintained to ensure product integrity. 

This presents a supply chain challenge where control is relinquished once the product leaves the dock.

The Varcode Smart Data Solution™ (VSDS), used alongside our patented Smart Tag™, ensures your team is alerted with actionable data from dock to doorstep when a shipment needs extra attention to maintain temperature.

Automated Cold Chain Data Analysis and Mobile Alerts

No data crunching is required!  Varcode built VSDS™ to provide simple, actionable information to the cold chain shipping industry.

  • Log in to the online dashboard for shipment journey information, such as when and how long a shipment went out of temperature range. 
  • For immediate alerts, VSDS™ sends email or text message updates to designated contacts when shipments are out of an acceptable temperature range.

Your supply chain specialists will have the critical data they need to make informed decisions about cargo handling every step of the way.

VSDS™ is enabled by Varcode’s Smart Tag™ Digitized Time-Temperature Indicator.  This innovative, patented solution uses dynamic barcodes that track and change alongside the temperature of the cargo.  Using standard barcode readers, iOS or Android devices, harvest data-rich information on the condition of your products at any point of the journey.

The Varcode solution is flexible.  From large enterprises with existing data logger systems or smaller shippers with the need to accurately track cold chain shipments, Varcode can enhance your current system or craft a stand-alone system to meet your needs. Our solution can integrate with and supplement your existing infrastructure.

Don’t leave your cold chain logistics professionals in the dark.  Varcode’s solution provides the data necessary to make the right decisions at the right time.  Contact us today to learn more.
