Feb 12, 2013 8:48 AM
BT9 has introduced Xsense Grading, a standardized measurement tool designed to improve management of the entire cold supply chain.
Xsense is an end-to-end cold chain management system that ensures all stakeholders in the cold supply chain have full transparency and control over their perishables, anywhere in the world, at any given time. Addition of the Xsense Grading tool specifically scores variations in both temperature and nutritional degradation, which is a function of respiration rates, physiology, time, and other nutrient composition fluctuations that naturally take place from harvest to consumption.
Xsense Cold Chain Grading levels range from a perfect score of 10 to the lowest score of one. Data can be automatically sent when scores drop below an acceptable threshold, so participants all along the cold chain can take action to prevent spoilage on a pallet-by-pallet basis. With this granular level of reporting, growers, shippers, and retailers can be confident that they know exactly whatís happening with the produce being shipped at every step along the way and can proactively decrease waste and improve food safety.
BT9 offers a holistic approach to cold chain management. It proactively monitors, analyzes, and disseminates relevant data and then supplements the data with recommendations on how to manage products based on collected information, assuring viability of the productís desired environmental conditions from start to finish. Within each product sector, BT9 experts look at variations in the cold chain and give specific recommendations to the impact of temperature data in regards to health, quality, and viability of products at all steps in the process.
