The logistics of fresh produce is challenging and complex when much of the fresh produce is shipped by sea or air, which takes a long time to transport. Different fruits and vegetables have different transportation requirements, especially in terms of temperature and humidity. For example, oranges, grapes cherries garlic and onions need to be stored and transported at temperatures of 0 to 2 degrees Celsius and humidity levels of 80% to 90%. And other fresh fruits and vegetables such as bananas, avocados and mangoes can be damaged by cold, so they must be kept at 13 to 15 degrees Celsius and 80% to 90 % humidity range. Therefore, it is especially important to monitor the produce at the right temperature and humidity during transportation to maintain its freshness and safety.
Tzone Digital Technology Co., Ltd. (Tzone) is a professional manufacturer of temperature and humidity recording devices. The company recently launched the latest TempU08 Single use USB temperature humidity data logger to the market. CEO Frank Liao first introduced the main functions of the temperature and humidity data logger. “This data logger is an upgraded version of our previous TempU08 (Single use temperature data logger). The new TempU08B is specifically designed for fresh produces, food logistics and designed with LCD display, temperature and humidity functions. Customers can configure their own required time zone and temperature and humidity alarm range through the configuration software to meet the different fruit and vegetable temperature and humidity range. The logger is very easy to use: turn it on with start click, put it into the container or fruit and vegetable box, and after the trip is recorded, simply connect it to a computer to automatically generate PDF and CSV temperature and humidity reports. There is no need for specialized software and it is compatible with various computer operating systems, which greatly saves manual training time and costs." Frank Liao said. “It is especially worth mentioning that this recorder uses the Swiss SENSIRION temperature and humidity sensor, which provides higher accuracy of measurement results and faster response time, making it very suitable for all kinds of fresh products that are sensitive to temperature and humidity."
Currently Europe, North and South America are the main markets for Tzone. "Last year, we had a significant increase in sales compared to the previous year. The pandemic that has lasted for nearly two years has triggered consumers to pay attention to food safety and made the fruit industry more aware of the importance of establishing a perfect fruit and vegetable temperature traceability system. Temperature and humidity data loggers play a very important role in the fruit and vegetable cold chain system. We obviously feel the increasing demand from overseas," said Frank Liao.
When talking about the impact of the global capacity constraint and chip shortage environment and the company's response measures, Frank Liao said, "Facing the congestion at ports, we have deep cooperation with international express companies such as DHL, FedEx, etc. to ensure the timeliness and at the same time, reduce the transportation cost of customers as much as possible, and actively explore the pharmaceutical market under the declining trade volume of the fruit and vegetable industry. In the face of chip shortage, we promptly launched multiple programs to optimize the supply chain and increase inventory investment. For factory shutdown and power outage, we arranged emergency production plans, increased labor, and increased production and inventory during the non-shutdown and power outage period."
In addition to the TempU08 series, Tzone has a whole series of temperature and humidity products, including USB temperature and humidity logger, temperature data logger, Bluetooth temperature and humidity data logger, TT18 wireless temperature and humidity data logger, wireless lora temperature and humidity sensor and gateway and other different types of devices applied to different needs of customers.
When talking about the advantages of the company, Frank Liao said, "Our company has 16 years of experience in manufacturing temperature and humidity equipment, with its own factory, R&D department, production department, and quality control. The product delivery has a very good overall control and can provide perfect pre-sales and after-sales service."
