  3. Protecting the Supply Chain from Temperature and Impact Damage

Summary: Packaging is the first line of defense against temperature and impact excursions. Data logging is the second. Monitoring packages’ actual temperatures and handling greatly increases visibility into the supply chain, providing insights into lanes, routes, carriers, and seasonal variations that can help protect future shipments, and excursion alerts that safeguard packages currently in transit.
