Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why should I use temperature Monitors even if I haven’t had issues?

With increased TGA regulations on food products and other regulations on different products, it’s become increasingly essential to maintain the integrity of temperature sensitive products.

Having proper Temperature Monitoring throughout every stage of the supply chain ensures the product arrives uncompromised and lets you find and address potential issues related to temperature regulation.

Unexpected delays at any stage of the supply chain, along with neglect and improper transport or storage, can compromise product quality or safety. A Proper Temperature Monitor will allow you to ensure any delays or neglect have not negatively compromised your product quality.
