Hello! Which thermometer do your delivery drivers use? We're moving on from the clumsy thermometers we're using now, but it's been more challenging finding a new pocket digital thermometer than anticipated. Anyone have recommendations? It would need to be small, very durable, easy to use, and possibly waterproof. And this might be pushing it, but a good cost :) Thanks, Erik

Hi Erik,

 

What do your drivers use the thermometers for?
Do you need one with infrared or one with a feeler? Or do you need a data logger?

A cheap option for a thermometer with feeler is the Ebro TLC 700. We switch them out every year since it is cheaper than kalibration.
Or you can go for the Ebro TLC 730 which has feelers and infrared.

We use them to check product temperatures, so we need one with a probe. No data logger.

Good morning Erik. When I managed FSP in a cold chain required grocery distribution, we used the internal trailer temperature records (with an alarm) to verify we maintained the cold chain.

 

I understand you are probably looking to fix an issue without making too many waves right now, but once you get situated it might really help streamline things if you can figure out a way to maintain verification of your cold chain without having drivers temp stuff.

 

Is driver temping on delivery a requirement of your customers?

Hello Tim,

 

Thank you for your response. Yes, unfortunately driver temping of product is a requirement of our customers. You are right though, I really want us to move away from drivers checking and recording trailer temperatures.

Well the good news is, once you get time to look into temp monitoring, it should be pretty easy to convince your customers. It's more reliable for a few reasons, and it is typically what my more demanding (Kroger!!) customers were looking for.
