Intelleflex CEO to Share Insight on Reducing Loss in the Produce Cold Chain at CSCMP Annual Global ConferencePeter Mehring, Innovator in RFID Temperature Monitoring, Joins Distinguished Food Industry Panel Addressing Challenges in Cold Chain Networks (September 27, 2011)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/27/11 -- Intelleflex, a leading provider of on-demand data visibility solutions, today announced that CEO Peter Mehring will join executives from FoodLink, GS1 US, Syspro, and ImpactFactor on a panel discussing the produce cold chain at the CSCMP Annual Global Conference. Mehring and his colleagues will address challenges and risks in the cold chain and will offer insights into finding practical solutions, including in-transit temperature monitoring at the pallet level to optimize shipments based on actual remaining shelf life to reduce waste. The panel, to be moderated by Ann Grackin, CEO of ChainLink Research, will also address how the effectiveness of cold chains can be improved by a segmented, end-to-end approach to cold chain management.
According to conference officials, "2011 has been a record year for cold chain challenges. Tainted products, recalls, and illicit activities have actually increased. This year also marks a turning point in global regulations, standards, and technology innovation to address these challenges. There is a road forward, yet many companies are reluctant to begin the journey. This session will offer fresh insights and pragmatic approaches to cold chain risks."
Intelleflex, a leader in cold chain temperature-monitoring solutions, offers RFID readers and tags that deliver actionable data at the pallet level, providing freshness and traceability solutions for cold chain providers while actively reducing produce shrink and improving delivered freshness.
