Application of GPS positioning technology in the field of cold chain transportation

With the continuous improvement of logistics infrastructure and the rise of new retail forces, consumers are increasingly demanding food quality, and cold chain transportation has become the preferred mode of transportation for many businesses. Cold chain products must be stored and transported at low temperature. If accidents such as vehicle breakdown or refrigeration system breakdown occur during transportation, the quality of cold chain products will be greatly affected. During cold chain transportation, how to ensure a suitable temperature environment in the car? How to monitor the temperature inside the transport vehicle in real time? Such as vegetables, fruits, eggs, seafood, dairy products and other products with high temperature environment, too low or too high temperature will affect the quality of food preservation, the goods are damaged and deteriorated, and the logistics company will have to bear the corresponding losses when the goods are delivered. If you don’t have money, you will lose money. This is something that every cold chain transportation company does not want to see. In response to the above problems, there are relevant solutions in China. GPS positioning technology is applied to cold chain logistics, resource sharing is realized through the network, and the operation route of vehicles during the transportation of goods, the real-time operation position of vehicles and goods, and the safety of personnel are realized. The situation, the operating condition of the vehicle and the temperature in the compartment are monitored, real-time and accurate grasping, which is convenient for the command and dispatch of the vehicles, and allows the logistics company to track the vehicle route, the position of the vehicle and the cargo and the temperature in the compartment during the transportation process in real time for 24 hours. , Monitoring, and remote control of cargo status at any time accurately. Once there is an abnormal situation, the manager can quickly understand and deal with it, effectively reducing the risk of cold chain transportation. This will greatly improve transportation efficiency and significantly reduce the cost of monitoring.

The temperature monitoring locator developed and produced by UniGuard Technology Limited is the most direct embodiment of the application of GPS positioning technology in cold chain transportation. This locator is small and light, with a large built-in battery, and is waterproof. It can be located and tracked in real time. Monitor the temperature and detect the opening and closing conditions of logistics vehicles in real time. Cold chain transportation managers can check the real-time location, driving track, real-time temperature, historical temperature and other information of vehicles and goods at any time through computers and mobile apps 24 hours a day. The low power of the locator and the abnormal temperature of the cabin are reminded in time. It is simple and practical, and the cost is low. The logistics company can achieve the goal of stable delivery with high efficiency, and the cargo owner can rest assured to entrust again. So what are the applications of GPS positioning technology in the field of cold chain transportation? Let's sort it out:

(1) Currently, the GPS locator terminal product developed by UniGuard has gradually improved its functions. It can not only be used to detect the temperature in the car, but also can be used for vehicle tracking. By installing related terminals, real-time tracking and display of selected vehicles can be realized. Through related APP, we can directly reflect the location of the vehicle, road conditions, distance to the nearest cold storage, and distance of the vehicle running line. We can also unify the number of vehicle history. Management, historical data playback of the trajectory of the vehicle, so as to continuously optimize the problems encountered in the transportation process.

(2) Operation monitoring. Multi-windows, multi-screens can monitor the operation of multiple vehicles at the same time, can accurately report vehicle location (including location, time) and operating conditions (including engine, temperature, speed), and can analyze vehicle mileage, speeding and other operating information within a specified time Statistics, understand whether the goods are safe on the way, whether they can arrive quickly and efficiently, and record the historical trajectory of the vehicle for operation evaluation and command and dispatch. When a vehicle is involved in an accident, the location and condition of the accident vehicle can be reported to the monitoring center in a timely and accurate manner, and decisions can be made quickly to minimize the loss of the accident.

(3) Unified command and dispatch company vehicles. The monitoring center can dynamically dispatch and manage all vehicles in the system based on the operating conditions of the vehicles. By implementing vehicle dispatch, the actual load rate of the vehicles can be increased, the empty driving rate of the vehicles can be effectively reduced, the transportation cost, and the transportation efficiency can be improved.

(4) Information query. Real-time information such as the geographic location of the transport vehicle, arrival time, mileage and other information can be intuitively understood from the relevant software APP. Customers can also customize related functions according to their needs. For example, they can set up an emergency situation and give an alarm to avoid situations that endanger the safety of people, vehicles, and goods, and make the best assistance plan. Cold chain logistics GPS technology, GPS real-time, all-weather, continuous, fast, and high-precision characteristics can bring a substantial change to the logistics and transportation industry, and will play an increasingly important role in the development of the logistics industry.
