With extreme weather events on the horizon in places across the Pacific, more strains on supply chains are likely over the next few months. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has announced another La Niña event is underway in the Pacific Ocean.
As it is, maritime shippers should be prepared storms and typhoons over spring and early summer. Big swings in climate conditions are also to be expected over the next few months.
Those moving sensitive reefer goods or even dry cargo, may be understandably worried about the impact of the changing weather might be. The extreme weather will make the capabilities offered by the innovative IQAX Focus solution that much more important and useful in the months ahead.
IQAX Focus provides a solution to monitor conditions and minimize the potential impact on cargo, an important feature given the expected disruptions.
The solution draws from data from multiple sources such as sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) devices to give end-to-end and real-time visibility spanning the overall transport of goods over land and sea and from door to door.
IQAX Focus analyzes and harmonizes data using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to deliver intelligent and timely cost saving alerts on cargo integrity in terms of temperature, set point, humidity, in-out zones, shock and open doors. It is applicable for both reefer and dry cargo.
Ultimately, IQAX Focus’ cargo monitoring ability can help monitor the conditions of cargo and minimize the impact of increasingly wild weather.
