Automatic Control in the Cold Supply Chain keonn This document contains information that is confidential and proprietary to Keonn and is solely for the use of the intended recipient designated by Keonn.

  2. 2. Logistics of cold products faces the challenges of conventionallogistics, plus some additional ones Challenges of conventional logistics  Specific challenges in logistics of cold products  Space optimization  Continuity of the cold supply chain  Routes optimization  Management of different temperatures  Time optimization  Specific regulations  Error reduction  Error irreversibility  Higher automation  Claims management (burden of proof)  Increase in value added 2
  3. 3. A wide set of incidences are usual in the cold supply chain  If the breakdown takes place at night or in a week-end, it can only be detected Failure in a cold through alarms storage  The failure may have or may have not broken the cold chain  It is necessary to determine whether it has affected the product or not Incidence in a truck  If it is detected before the truck arrives at the customer’s premises, the  consequences may be avoided  Sea transport increases transit times and increases the risk Sea transport  On board, the cooling procedures change Irregular loading /  Responsibility can only be assigned with the exact data of time of delivery and unloading temperature history  Collecting the necessary data may require hours/days of work Inspections  Predefined automated reports would simplify the process enormously  Without detailed reports, it is impossible to assign responsibility Customer claims  Consequently, the supplier usually assumes the costs: “The customer is always  right” 3
  4. 4. Keonn Monitor helps in solving all these problems, bycontinuously monitoring the temperature of products Advantages  Captures the temperature data in cold chambers, trucks, chests, End-to-end pallets and boxes  Data capture does not require human intervention  There are no forgotten tasks, errors or excuses keonn Automatic  Temperature is captured always and everywhere  If any sensor fails, the system sends an alert  All data are harmonized and stored in a centralized repository  Such repository is accessible from anywhere, simply through a web Centralized browser, with different access levels  Reports and alarms are generated centrally  The installation is very simple, typically after a few hours at every site, including trucks and warehouses Simple  In warehouses, only power supply and a network connection are required  In trucks, no connections are needed 4
  5. 5. Each pallet incorporates a sensor that measures temperatureperiodically and stores it in an embedded memory Reusable sensors Single use sensors  Fed by a battery, their lifetime ranges from one to five  Fed by batteries (lifetime >1 year) years  Can store up to 2.000 registers (2K x 8), depending on  Can store up to 2MB of data the configuration  Resolution of 0,5ºC  Resolution of 0,5ºC  May have processing capacity or not, e.g. calculation of  Configurable sampling period shelf life  Two storage modes: periodic or activated by  Can include several sensors simultaneously thresholds (temperature, light, humidity, acceleration, gas, etc.)   Data retention up to 10 years  They unload the data automatically when entering a  Very robust, and can be reused zone under coverage of any reader  Operational frequency: 13.56 MHz  They are very robust and long-lasting  Protocol: ISO 15693 5
  6. 6. When reaching destination, the sensors communicate with thereader on-site and transmit all the stored data Sensor Readers  Connected directly to mains  Communicate with sensors, fixed or mobile through radiofrequency in UHF band, or at 2,4 GHz.  Communicate with the central management software via Ethernet or WiFi  Download the data stored in those sensors under their coverage area, and transmit them to the central repository  Can contain sensors 6
  7. 7. The data received by readers are stored in a central repository andare managed by a scalable software application  Manages multiple sites  Manages a fleet  Manages users with different access levels  Generates detailed reports, on screen, or exported to PDF and Excel  Cold chamber temperature report of all warehouses  Truck temperature report  Pallet or box temperature report  Configures the alarms, with thresholds dependant on day and time  Configurable alarms based on minimum and maximum temperature ranges and duration of active alarm, variable according to time of day  Configures a chain of alarm notifications, depending on time that the alarm has been active (hysteresis)  Sends the alarms through SMS or e-mail  Manages all the stored data  Calculates product temperature keonn  Shelf life for each product can be calculated, increasing it with respect to the “worst case” common practice Keonn Monitor is apt for CCQI Certification 7
  8. 8. Keonn monitor manages the difference between air and producttemperatures by means of phantoms and heat equation calculations keonn Temperature (ºC) 18 16 14 12 Air temperature 10 Product temperature 8 Product temperature calculated by Keonn Monitor 6 4 2 0 -2 13:04 14:44 16:24 18:04 19:44 21:24 23:04 0:44 2:24 4:04 Time Keonn Monitor monitors the temperature of products, not the temperature of the air. Alarms are sent only when there are real problems. 8
  9. 9. Keonn Monitor has a web-based interface. Each user mustintroduce its login and password to access Login through http:// 9
  10. 10. Users have a global vision of the cold supply chain throughout allwarehouses and premises, and detect alarms very quickly Alarm: maximum temperature surpassed 10
  11. 11. The system also detects and alerts about power supply failures Alarm of power supply failure 11
  12. 12. The current state of fixed sensors is viewed graphically 12
  13. 13. The evolution of products’ temperature is viewed in real-time bymeans of charts Real-time temperature charts 13
  14. 14. Users can generate a wide range of reports and export them toPDF or Excel Reportgeneration Temperature and doors openingExample of reports Sensor battery level 14
  15. 15. Alarms can be configured, assigned to specific users and sent bye-mail or SMS Management Suscription to of alarm types alarms 15
  16. 16. Keonn Monitor also allows creating and managing users, andassigning specific permission levels to each user 16
  17. 17. The deployment of Keonn Monitor in the cold supply chain of a large foodcompany has been a success, recovering the investment in less than 1 year Customer voice  “The system works perfectly”  “When there is an alarm, there is always a real problem.  There are no false alarms”  “We have completely replaced our old monitoring system by  Keonn Monitor”  “Thanks to Keonn Monitor, we have detected many failures in our cold chain that otherwise would have gone undetected”  “Keonn Monitor has allowed us avoiding failures that would have led to product losses”  “We are going to save lots of energy costs by better adjusting  the temperature of our cold stores”  “The ROI of Keonn Monitor is large. We have recovered our investment in less than one year” 17
  18. 18. In conclusion, Keonn Monitor controls and optimizes the coldsupply chain in a very efficient way keonn  Automatic capture of all temperature data Integral register of  Control of cold stores, trucks, chests, pallets and boxes temperature data  Harmonized and centralized data repository Fast and universal access to  Generation of personalized reports (PDF and/or Excel) stored data  Access to reports and data from any web browser Fast detection of failures or  Personalized alarms, through SMS or e-mail problems  Very fast and simple installation Easy and cheap installation  No operational costs (100% automatic) and operation  Large ROI and short payback  Useful to obtain the CCQI certification Useful to improve processes  Manages customer claims  Speeds up inspection processes 18
