An In-Transit Humidity Sensor Benefits Your Business

Whether you are in the food industry or provide pharmaceuticals to your customers, your goal is most likely to supply high-quality products each day. If this requires the shipment of your temperature-sensitive goods to various locations, you may also be looking for the best ways to ensure your products arrive in-tact and safe to use.

While there are many options for data loggers available to food and pharmaceutical industries, one important addition to a shipment can often be a humidity sensor. In addition to tracking the temperature of each shipment, having a humidity sensor can provide some important details about how your shipments fare between Point A and Point B.

Some products have a specific temperature requirement to ensure the longevity of shelf life and to maintain stability. Other products are more susceptible to changes in outside moisture levels, especially when transit vehicles may have multiple stops or the products themselves release moisture as they thaw. With a humidity sensor, you can more easily track the products that travel well together, work on solutions for humidity management inside your trucks, and apply new insulative coverings that help manage humidity levels overall.

Combined with a temperature monitor, a humidity sensor can be a valuable addition to any food or pharmaceutical shipment with both short and long-term results. Not only can you begin tracking your data right away, but in a few weeks, you will also begin to see trends in temperature and humidity across your shipments.
