Cold Chain Gateway

For our 2020 pilot, we are using highly secure, continuously connected 4G gateways.

These devices are placed on your shipment and stay with the load throughout its journey to the final customer.

Equipment is shipped with postage-paid return packaging, and a QR code guides customers on how to return the gear to your facility during the plan period.

ProofTag™ Sensor

Each gateway can have multiple sensor tags associated with it, allowing shippers to monitor at the pallet, crate or case level.

 Capture temperatures within loads, near container doors or under pallets.

Transparent Path's ProofTag sensors

Where we're headed: package-level monitoring

The Transparent Path roadmap includes printed electronic sensors called ProofTags™. The tag is a biodegradeable polymer label that can be affixed to any item.

The surface is covered by a printed QR code that, when scanned with a mobile phone, jumps to a web-based page showing the product origins and a set of logistics and freshness information, selectively displayed based on authorization level. 

The substrate is a biodegradeable printed sensor using graphene oxide conductive ink. Depending on the use case, the tag will be powered either through a coin cell, a printed battery, or via ambient electromagnetic energy.

Transparent Path has been designing a pilot ProofTag with Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). We anticipate build/test beginning in 2021.
