"More exporters tend to choose disposable USB temperature data loggers"

To understand the temperature changes of fresh fruits and vegetables during cold chain logistics, many fruit and vegetable traders use temperature monitoring devices during long-distance transportation. "These kinds of products can be roughly divided into two types: RTH 4G real-time temperature & humidity monitoring device and disposable USB temperature data logger. Fruit traders' choices of different products reflect their observations of the market to a certain extent." Tina Sun, from Fresh-key (Shanghai) Technology Co., Ltd said that the company is committed to providing a complete cold chain IoT monitoring solution for the global food supply chain.

"Fruit merchants usually inquire and order products before the start of the season. 2023 is the year when the economy gradually recovers after the pandemic. Many exporters are optimistic about China's fruit market and increasing exports in the hope of increasing sales. Therefore, earlier last year, more customers preferred 4G real-time device because this product can perform real-time monitoring during transportation, and they wanted it even if the cost was high."

"With the development of the season, especially in the second half of the year, more exporter customers have replaced their orders with disposable USB loggers. They said that after the pandemic, many new merchants and brands have entered the market one after another, and the competition is fierce, but the market consumption power is still recovering. As a result, the consumption of fruits is slow. Some businesses have readjusted export volumes and sought to reduce costs. Although USB loggers cannot monitor in real-time, they are relatively cheap and easy to use."

"Some merchants are also applying 4G real-time devices to the domestic fruit and vegetable trade in their countries to improve recycling efficiency," Tina added.

According to Tina, when using a USB logger, the exporter will reach a consensus in advance with the importer partner who has cooperated with them for many years. When the fruits arrive, the importer side immediately feeds back the data to the USB. Because the USB device can be read by just plugging it into a computer or mobile phone, it is convenient to use at any time. To improve the search efficiency, Fresh-key will paste the customer's company LOGO and three barcode stickers corresponding to the pallet on the USB device to facilitate identifying the target.

"It is worth mentioning that the biggest difference between our USB loggers and other similar products is that we use a chip to record the temperature, which makes the stability and accuracy higher. Many similar products use physical properties to measure temperature. However, due to the influence of different environments and production batches, these devices themselves will produce a deviation of 1-3°C, which will affect the accuracy of temperature measurement."

Brix (sugar content) meter

Fresh-key will participate in the 2024 Berlin Fruit Logistica from February 7th to 9th. "The products include temperature monitoring devices, the self-built Fresh-IOT cold chain platform, and the newly developed Brix meter. We will bring various products and look forward to meeting you all." The company's booth number is Hall 26 B -80.
