According to the article Sensor-based Logistics: Monitoring Shipment Vital Signs in Real Time by Chris Swearingen, June 2013,, healthcare and pharmaceutical are some of the industries that can benefit from SBL. When shipping perishable items there is the need to carefully maintain the environmental variables of these packages while in transit. An SBL solution can save products from being damaged by monitoring factors such as light exposure, temperature, and humidity.

Also, because companies receive continuous data during the shipments they can intervene instead of reacting, i.e. they can re-ice cold chain shipments in cases of temperature changes, inspect and repack damaged products or involve authorities in case of stolen goods.

Against this backdrop SMi Group is proud to announce FedEx will be sponsoring and presenting at the 8th Cold Chain Distribution. Mr Chris Swearingen, Global Marketing Manager at FedEx will be speaking about Sensor-Based Logistics (SBL): A new and innovative technology enhancing Supply Chain Visibility and Control.
