Foodborne illness is a serious cause for concern. Each year in the U.S., about 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases.
For the transportation and logistics industry, food safety is a cause for concern due to the high volume of product that is transported via trucks. In response, the Food Safety Modernization Act was created to enforce new regulations to monitor the supply chain.
There are many challenges that shippers and carriers face when it comes to handling food, but software solutions can help trucking companies overcome those challenges by providing real-time visibility and monitoring of food shipments in their respective supply chains.
In this eBook, we explore the landscape that shippers and carriers operate in when handling food and beverage loads, the challenges they face, and how to overcome those challenges. By using technology solutions, shippers and carriers can more easily follow the regulations set forth by the FSMA and prevent the transportation of food and beverages from being the cause of foodborne illness outbreaks.
