Unisys rolls out new cold chain tracking


Unisys Corporation has announced new enhancements to its Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS) to allow airlines to better track and monitor sensitive air cargo such as pharmaceutical and perishable products.

In the current situation key metrics such as temperature and dry ice levels are displayed on an LCD screen on the container and recorded manually in a paper-based system. The new Pharmaceutical Product Handling feature of the Unisys LMS will automatically capture and store this critical data so that a full audit trail is available on demand. Th e new feature is expected to be available later this year.

LMS will use web services to communicate with networked monitoring devices on the containers to automatically transmit the log details, removing the need for manual data entry and improving data accuracy.
