Havi Logistics Norway takes Supply Chain performance to the next level with sustainable asset tracking from Surfact
#After relying on the same temperature control solution for several years, we decided to explore alternative options available in the market. Our previous solution did not meet all the necessary requirements to ensure optimal food safety.
We easily settled on Surfact's solution when it was presented to us, given its advanced features and capabilities. With Surfact's temperature loggers, we are no longer dependent on the receivers to end temperature monitoring. It allows us full control throughout the entire transport phase through our proactive tracking system.
Surfact's temperature loggers require charging and calibration only once a year. The loggers are notably manufactured using recycled plastic from the sea, a feature we highly value considering our commitment to environmental sustainability.
We recommend Surfact for anyone seeking to ensure stringent temperature control during transport.#
