Live monitoring at Keppel Logistics warehouses

Published: 5-Jan-2018

Keppel Logistics operates world-class logistics facilities with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure, relying on the new Rotronic Monitoring System in its warehouses

In Keppel’s storage spaces, temperature monitoring is key. Keppel’s customers in the pharmaceuticals sector utilise both air conditioned and non air conditioned storage.

One of Keppel Logistics‘ main requirements is to be able to carry out real-time monitoring, allowing both management and its customers to have direct access to the warehouse conditions from anywhere in the world and at any time.

Furthermore, Keppel required a simple way to collect data, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the data.

The Rotronic Monitoring System was implemented, allowing real-time monitoring and data recording, meeting the requirements of FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

“We were convinced by the flexibility that RMS offers with regard to further expansion of the system, and by the ease of use,” said Vync Toh, Keppel Logistics.

Rotronic was able to offer Keppel two solutions: a cloud-based system hosted from Singapore or Switzerland, or a server-based system installed directly at Keppel Logistics.

All temperature points are automatically uploaded to the system. The data can be accessed by logging in or personalised reports can be received remotely on a regular basis.

Removing the need for manual data collection, saves time — the data are accessed via smartphone, tablet, or PC, from any location worldwide.

Presently, Keppel measures only the temperature. However, thanks to the flexibility of RMS, Keppel has the capability to monitor further parameters, such as relative humidity, dew point and differential pressure, door contacts and much more. Even third-party products can be integrated without any issues.
