Inteligistics is the provider of wireless temperature visibility solutions for the food industry, bringing together technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, advance communications, sensors, RFID and cloud based software. These solutions improve quality, freshness and shelf life of food, enable traceability and regulatory compliance (e.g. Food Safety Modernization Act) and manage and minimize food waste.
One of the primary causes of food waste along the supply chain is poor temperature management; in fact, over 50 percent of all fresh produce goes to waste which has dire implications to the US and the world. The waste in the food distribution is considerably reduced through diligent temperature management. The food industry today relies on manual recording and paper based reporting that lack integrity and traceability along the food chain.
Since its launch in 2004, Inteligistics has worked with customers like the US Navy in order to achieve 'Total Asset Visibility' of all assets around the world, creating an agile technology platform that was successfully commercialized in 2012. In 2013, the company turned its attention to fresh produce industry to address the quality and safety of food enabled by their wireless temperature monitoring.
Inteligistics’ temperature visibility solutions cut across the food value chain all the way from harvest to retail store shelf, managing the lifecycle of food between each player involved. By monitoring each handoff, the company’s solutions predict the remaining shelf life of any food product and communicate the whole supply chain story element by element.
Inteligistics is the only total solution designed for fresh produce and food industry. Its solutions provide continuous and consistent temperature story at every stage in the distribution chain. Only Inteligistics' growing and shipping customers possess the tools to consistently and diligently manage their ‘cut to cool’ time/temperature management. Using the solutions, the retailers can gather accurate quality and shelf life of the produce that arrives at their distribution centers. Inteligistics systems streamline operations and compliance set by regulatory bodies like the Food & Drug Administration.
