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.

The software makes it easy to profile temperature conditions on global shipping lanes. First you specify your lane by entering waypoints, like cities or airports, and associated residence times at these waypoints. The software then connects to weather stations close to your specified waypoints and provides you access to temperature data.

The module “Historical Temperatures” collects historical temperature data from the selected weather stations along the lane. Historical temperature data reach back about 10 years for most stations, and are typically sampled in one hour intervals, depending on the station.

With the module “Forecast Temperatures” you can access a 7-day temperature forecast provided by the weather stations along your specified lane.

To complement the temperature profiling, the module “Solar Irradiance” gives you information on the solar irradiance along your shipping lane, as function of location and local time of the day.

The data in SmartCAE Temperature Profiles provide you the tools to statistically analyze the conditions on your shipping lanes. For example, you can determine the mean and 95-percentile historical temperatures on a daily or monthly basis, the probability for extremal temperature events. Such statistical characteristics fundamental to assess 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 Lane Risk 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 Curve

The software SmartCAE Performance Curve 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.
