Reefer Container Monitoring System
Cargo Monitoring, Real-Time Visibility and Control
Information is power, and with changing market dynamics and increased global pressures, the need for transparency throughout the shipping industry has reached a completely new level. Purfresh's cloud-based proprietary cargo monitoring software, Intellipur®, provides never before available real-time visibility into and control over the conditions of any and temperature-sensitive cargo shipped in refrigerated marine containers around the world.
Offering growers, manufacturers, importers/exporters, ocean carriers, and retailers the competitive advantage, Intellipur provides role-based real-time atmospheric conditions inside the reefer, location data, automatic alerts, and detailed trip reports. Available as a per-trip or contracted service, everyone – from the grower/manufacturer to the consumer – benefits from augmented transparency, fewer losses, and higher-quality arrivals.
Real-time Location and Status Overview
Real-time reporting on the location of your reefer container and status of the internal atmospheric conditions. Providing constant insight into the storage conditions and early warning of potentially damaging situations.
Real-time monitoring provides the ability to minimize cargo damage by taking corrective action while the reefer is at sea or in port. Throughout the trip, satellite and/or GSM signals are sent from the Purfresh panel to Purfresh's 24/7 data center, every 10 minutes. When unexpected conditions occur, users automatically receive an alert sent to their computer or smart phone. Real-time monitoring reduces damage and loss by allowing Purfresh to resolve damaging conditions such as incorrect vent settings, unplanned power-off events and/or incorrect temperature settings to prevent cargo integrity from being compromised.
Comprehensive Post-Voyage Data
At the end of the journey, download complete trip details for a detailed view of atmospheric values during the trip. This type of information can be incredibly valuable in explaining arrival condition and provides great insight into the freshness of transported loads.
Comprehensive post-voyage reports provide valuable information about the container's atmospheric conditions during the trip including temperature, humidity, ozone levels, and respiration. In addition, trip reports highlight exactly when and where power-off events occurred, offering additional insight into the voyage.
Reefer Status Monitor
Detailed atmospheric values give complete insight into the conditions inside the reefer and offers strong indications to freshness status.
Email and smart phone notifications are provided for the following events:
- Sensor above threshold; includes temperature, relative humidity (RH), oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and ozone (O3)
- Power-off events >1 hr
- Geofence entry/exit
Post-voyage reports on container settings allow shippers to verify the condition and quality of the shipment upon arrival, and offer insight into produce ripening through CO2 levels.
- Sensor values, in 10-minute increments, for temperature, relative humidity (RH), oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and ozone (O3)
- Power-off events >1 hour
- Travel path via GPS coordinates
- Port departure and arrival time stamps
- Number of defrost events and duration

In addition to protecting your investment while in transit, Purfresh:
- Extends shelf life – allowing more time to reach the buyer
- Reduces or eliminates chemical use
- Complies with USDA and FDA organic guidelines
- Maintains freshness – ensuring you receive the maximum value for your shipment
- Saves money by reducing waste, repack, and related claims processing
- Enables sensitive produce to be economically shipped longer distances – helping you reach and develop new markets
- Provides on-demand trip reports and claim defense
Purfresh Cold Chain Intelligence
Challenges of Cold Chain Management for temperature sensitive perishable cargo include long transit times and harsh environments. High value commodities are placed on intermodal transportation with indirect or no monitoring and rely on interdependent supply chains.
Purfresh Cold Chain Intelligence delivers real time, on trip visibility. Our real time monitoring delivers visibility of all atmospheric conditions within the reefer container. Detailed reports for post-trip documentation verifies that cargo has been kept at appropriate temperatures for the duration of the voyage.
Get increased protection for high value shipments with door breach and G-force notifications that will reduce risk of product tampering. The ability to correct problems in transit (temperature, atmosphere, shock) gives our customers control of remote logistics operations and gives them confidence that their valuable products will arrive in good condition.
In-Transit Cold Treatment:
Monitoring, Reporting, and Remote Temperature Change
In certain markets government agricultural authorities require imported fruit to be held at or below a specific temperature for a specific time to ensure that insect pest organisms are eliminated and the risk of local contamination by these organisms is mitigated. This process is collectively known as “Cold Treatment”, or “Cold Sterilization”. Temperature probes are inserted into fruit flesh to record pulp temperature and this data is then reported on and submitted to agricultural authorities to validate the requirements are met. This process can be performed in the country of origin, country of destination, or during the ocean transportation segment of the supply chain depending on the market requirements.
Purfresh provides hardware and software to manage intermodal container environments and the Intellipur software solution to provide near real time visibility and reporting of atmospheric conditions within the intermodal cold chain. Included in these capabilities is the ability to monitor temperature data from cold treatment probes remotely via GSM and satellite, as well as remotely download this data and electronically present the required formatted report for validation by import government agricultural authorities, in advance of vessel arrival at the destination port.
