The term general or universal logistics includes the processes of production, processing, finishing, maintenance, packaging, signing (marking), stacking, sorting, weighing, measuring, loading (unloading), unloading, transhipment , tramping (transfer), storage, filling and emptying of containers and means of transport, transport (transport), fumigation, rodent control, disinsection, forwarding, agency, customs clearance insurance, sale, distribution, marketing, management, calculation, financing, controlling of goods.
Plays a crucial role in most of this process of transport & logistics. The health of all clients and users is often reliant upon temperature in many ways as well. Maintaining proper temperature levels in storage areas is critical. Temperature-controlled transport is a complex topic, covering much more than merely getting goods from one place to another.
According to European Union, there are several regulations and recommendations for transport and logistics.
Hygiene regulations by EU practice
- Establish and implement „good hygiene practices“
- Establish and implement a self-inspection system on the basis of HACCP
- Annual temperature recorder inspections as per EN 13486
- Documentary evidence
Each distributor and transporter is required to adhere to the following protocols:
In every industry that involves food temperature of food and the premises where that food is produced, stored and transported, you should constantly control the temperature to minimize the risk of harmful levels of bacteria.
Products that are at high risk of developing harmful bacteria is meat products. Dried goods and vegetables and salad are also likely to contain bacteria if the food is on premises that have poor temperature control. Perishable food should always be controlled to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Taking down the temperature on the paper, at least twice a day, could be exhausting and time consuming. There is a modern solution for your problems in Hanna Instruments. Log on with our loggers and keep logging.
