JBS Swift uses PakSense
to keep tabs on temps
Nov 14, 2007 9:49 AM
JBS Swift & Company, North America, has adopted the PakSense TXi Label to monitor time and temperature of product during distribution. PakSense Labels are in use on truckloads of fresh beef and pork from JBS Swift processing plants to customer locations throughout the United States.
PakSense Labels are placed on fresh beef and pork loads and then shipped to customer locations. When the truck is received, JBS Swift customers examine visual indicators on the labels to verify that acceptable temperature ranges were maintained during shipping. Labels are then pulled at customer locations and mailed back to JBS Swiftís Greeley CO office as part of a temperature traceability program.
The labelís small size enables it to be mailed back in the postal system, and once received, they are filed with shipping paperwork. A non-volatile memory means data is perpetually stored and can be downloaded at any point in the future.
