APL refines cargo monitoring

[ September 7, 2016   //   ]

APL is introducing real-time oxygen and carbon dioxide monitoring as part of its SMARTemp reefer satellite system, in addition to existing temperature and humidity tracking. Live monitoring of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels comes in most useful for delicated cargoes and prolongs their post-harvest life. Powered by a microprocessor controller fixed to the container, SMARTemp records precise readings on temperature, humidity as well as oxygen and carbon dioxide levels of a reefer cargo shipment in real-time.
