Italian companies can count on the support of Blulog technology deployed on the Italian market by Just Italy Srl
Securing the cold chain is the key to efficient operation for many industries. In gastronomy, processing, trade, transport and medicine, current temperature control allows to keep goods in the right conditions, often strictly defined by law. What's more, those products require not only the right temperature at the time of storage, but above all the ongoing control over its maintenance, which is a particular challenge for larger scale operations. A systematic way to control the temperature was elaborated by a French - Polish company Blulog, which implemented its patented data loggers in companies and institutions from 78 cities around the world. One of the European countries where Blulog can boast fruitful cooperation is Italy, thanks to its strategic partner Just Italy Srl.
Technology - how does it work?
The implementation of a systemic temperature monitoring solution is beneficial - it saves time that employees had to spend on manual measurements, but it is also a certain and precise way to control parameters during the entire storage or transport period. It allows to protect end recipients against unpleasant consequences, most often concerning health.
The heart of the Blulog concept are credit card size data loggers that use machine to machine technology.
- Measurements are done wirelessly, in real time, and thanks to alerts it is possible to react immediately in case of any excursions -says Jérémy Laurens, CEO at Blulog. Depending on the needs, there are two types of technology - NFC (fast, short-range data transfer) and RF (radio data transfer).- adds Jérémy.
In Italy several leading firms are benefitting of RFID Technology and wireless DataLoggers to move on Industry 4.0 and we are glad to be Partner with Blulog of this change, – Says Fabio Coscarella, CEO at Just Italy Srl.
Transport of fish
Blulog’s technology has been already implemented in Italy thanks to the local partner Just Italy, a company specialized in modern technologies (chips, sensors, data loggers). One of the sectors where Blulog is used is the transport and storage of fish and seafood. Temperature plays a key role in the product distribution process. From fishing through the packaging process up to processing by the consumer, it should be kept between 0 and 4 ° C. Excursions generate the development of microbes and can be a serious threat to the the users’ health.
During transport, the Blulog system is synchronized with TomTom devices, which further improves the current work.
Fish delivered to five countries
Effective cooperation allows to secure the supply chain of Delicius, a company that delivers fish products to five Mediterranean countries. The core business of the company based in Parma is the production and processing of anchovies. Directly after the fishing, the products are placed in large wooden barrels, covered with layers of salt. After months, salted anchovies are carefully packaged, packaged by hand and sent.
- All processing phases are closely monitored by highly qualified staff supported by modern technologies that we supply with Blulog. Thanks to the SMS and email alerts and personalized system, representatives of Delicius know immediately about any anomaly that could impact the quality of their products. - says Fabio Coscarella, Co-Founder and CET at Just Italy Srl.
For the animals’ welfare
Maintaining the right temperature is also important in storage and transport of certain products in the zoological industry. This is known to the owners of Mondo Animale, who for 20 years run a pet supplies store, providing comprehensive care from accessories, special linings, plants for aquariums or terrariums, up to different kinds of feed. The right conditions (temperature and humidity) ensure that the surroundings of animals and products they consume will be beneficial for their health and well-being.
It worth mentioning that both Blulog and Just Italy will be exhibiting together at Fruitlogistica 2019 in February. During this event, which groups over 3,000 companies from all over the world, the partners will be happy to provide you with details concerning common projects.
