Reusable IoT Pallet Supplier Recognized for ELIoT™ Embedded Traceability Technology
Orlando, FL, December 16, 2020 – Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named RM2 to its 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list. The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers honors leading software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable global food and beverage supply chain.
RM2 launched the smart pallet revolution by embedding autonomous IoT sensor technology in its logistically optimized, hygienic BLOCKPal™ reusable pallets. This technology, called ELIoT (End-to-End Logistics Intelligence Optimization Technology) offers food supply chains unprecedented visibility and real-time monitoring of product location, temperature, shock events, and chain of custody. RM2’s pallets are made of a non-wood composite material that is lightweight yet stronger pound-for-pound than structural steel. This non-porous, hygienic material is also tolerant of extreme temperatures (from -40° F to 176° F) making it ideal for food supply chains and even ultra-low temperature pharmaceutical cold chains.
“We are honored to be recognized on the FL100 list for our BLOCKPal pallets and ELIoT technology,” commented Kevin Mazula, CEO of RM2, “As cold chains seek higher performance, cold-tolerant non-wood pallets and real-time temperature tracking, our IoT pallets stand ready to meet these demands.”
“From fleet management to warehouse management to simply just track and trace along the cold food chain, these software and technology providers have definitely stepped it up to ensure cold food and beverage products continue moving along the line without incident,” says Maina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This pandemic has thrown the food industry a curveball, but many of these providers fast-tracked the development and deployment of their solutions to ensure food safety, traceability, visibility and quality assurance. So, to these winners and others in the industry working to make a difference, thank you!”
Companies on this year’s 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list will be profiled in the November/December 2020 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
RM2 launched the smart reusable pallet revolution by embedding autonomous IoT sensor technology in its logistically optimized, hygienic BLOCKPal™ composite pallets. IoT sensor data are transmitted to the cloud via the LTE-M network, making visible the pallet’s location and condition both indoors and in transit without requiring any additional hardware or IT development or training. RM2’s End-to-end Logistics Intelligence Optimization and Tracking (ELIoT™) technology – the Company’s cloud-based supply chain intelligence platform – captures and contextualizes location, temperature, shock, and event data, giving customers end-to-end supply chain visibility and clear, actionable insights in real time. RM2 issues, retrieves, and sanitizes more than 1.5 million reusable IoT pallets annually through a nationwide network of over 30 service facilities in a cost-effective, scalable, and environmentally sustainable pallet pooling system.
