Orange Wedge digital temp recorder
monitors inter-company transfers
Oct 8, 2012 7:00 AM
Cargo Data Corporation has released the Orange Wedge digital temperature recorder designed specifically for monitoring inter-company transfers and cross-dock movements in the perishable food industry.
Responding to customer requests, Cargo Data engineered the Orange Wedge for this specific transfer application. While frequently overlooked in calculations of truckloads shipped, inter-company transfers frequently account for a significant number of truckload shipments for many firms that produce raw material at one location and process at a second location several hundred miles away. To keep internal costs low, these firms have requested ultra-low-cost temperature monitoring devices with only the most essential features for inter-company transfers.
Orange Wedge is equipped with an LED out-of-range alert. This allows unloading staff at the receiving dock to immediately determine if an inter-company transfer shipment has experienced out-of-range conditions during transit. Orange Wedge is also designed to dock with Cargo Data’s handy Express handheld data retrieval unit.
Orange Wedge is fully compatible with Cargo Data’s free KoldLink desktop application, which provides instant temperature chart viewing and analysis. KoldLink also shunts temperature data to Cargo Data’s UpLink cloud data access facility. From the Cargo Data website, quality control/food safety staff can access temperature data from an inter-company transfer shipment almost immediately by entering the temperature recorder ID number in the UpLink field on the home page. UpLink also archives in-transit temperature data for future internal or third-party quality control or food safety audits.
Use of UpLink is entirely free and does not require log-in credentials of any type. Data can be accessed simply by entering the same recorder number typically listed on all shipping documents. UpLink is a key time-saving feature when settling disputes with carriers—no need to e-mail/fax temperature charts since the non-editable data is online for all to see.
Orange Wedge is available for immediate shipping. To place an order or for more information, call 800-338-8134 or visit www.cargodatacorp.com.
