Temperature Profiles

With access to over 20.000 weather stations worldwide, our software SmartCAE Temperature Profiles lets you create temperature profiles of global shipping lanes with an arbitrary number of waypoints based on historical weather data.

The software makes it easy to generate global shipping lanes by connecting weather stations close to lane waypoints. At each waypoint the software provides the local historical temperature data from nearby weather stations. Solar irradiance can be accessed as well. Historical temperature data reach back about 10 years for most stations, and are typically sampled in one hour intervals, depending on the weather station. These data allow for a statistical evaluation of a shipping lane: the mean and 95-percentile temperature value on a daily or monthly basis, the probability for extremal temperature events – these statistical characteristics provide valuable insight into the expected thermal risk on a lane for temperature controlled logistics. It is also possible to export lane temperature profiles for further analysis.

Lane Risk

The software SmartCAE LaneRisk helps you answer one of the fundamental questions in temperature controlled logistics: what is the probability that a shipper system fails to keep the temperature-sensitive payload within a designated temperature range on a specific lane?

Performance Curves

The software SmartCAE Performance Curves allows you to determine a shipper’s performance curve, the characteristic thermal footprint of a passive shipper system. It represents the time a shipper can keep a payload within a specified temperature range as function of constant ambient temperature. This provides a well-defined reference that can be used to compare the thermal performance of different shipper systems.

Thermal Packaging

The software SmartCAE Thermal Packaging helps you determine the optimal design for your passive shippers. You are enabled to create a virtual prototype and instantly test it against arbitrary ambient temperature profiles. With our software you will find the best solution for your cold chain challenges faster and more cost-effectively.
