Australia's climate is generally favourable throughout the entire year, but in the summer months the thermometer can really start to creep up to some extreme temperatures. The warming climate isn't making the situation any easier – the Climate Council notes that 2015 was the hottest year on record, while the UN expects that record to be exceeded again in 2016, according to The Guardian.
For those in the transport and logistics industry, this presents some unique challenges in terms of storing and moving perishable stock. To ensure your valuable produce gets to its destination intact, the testo Saveris 2 wireless temperature monitoring system could be a lifesaver.
Preventing wastage in storage
A report from VicHealth suggests that spoiled food makes up around 15 per cent of the 20 million tonnes of waste sent to Australian landfills each year. That's a staggering amount of produce, and while much of it is household scraps, supermarkets and restaurants make a significant contribution.
How much of that spoiled produce could have been saved had effective monitoring solutions been in place? The testo Saveris 2 data logger system protects the integrity and quality of perishable goods by tracking temperature and humidity fluctuations, and alerting users if preset levels are exceeded.

With a number of data loggers installed at key locations – both in your cold storage facility or onboard transport vehicles – the Saveris 2 system sends real-time climatic conditions to our secure cloud server. Users can then monitor levels from their desktop computer, smartphone or tablet, and identify issues should they arise.
Stay informed through notifications
Given how busy those in the transport and storage industries can be, it's not always possible to stay vigilant when it comes to temperature monitoring. Thankfully, the Saveris 2 system is designed to recognise when temperature or humidity variance goes beyond acceptable limits, and automatically notifies users via email or push notifications through the accompanying mobile app.
Over the summer period, temperatures are high and businesses often take a break. Having an automated system capable of real-time climate monitoring can prevent returning from the holiday break to a business facility full of spoiled goods.
