Focuses on providing service based on H+T Three pillars: easy to use, economically accessible to any market and environmentally friendly (It is 100% recyclable, does not contain disposable components, is recharged and can be repaired if it breaks).
“The comprehensive solution includes smart devices developed and manufactured entirely by the company, which due to their size can be located in any industry and any shipment of any size. It can be a test tube to a laboratory , a box on a pallet, or even a container, to name a few examples,” said Cuello.
H+Trace uses a suite of sensors to generate data on shipping conditions, which are sent live to servers in the cloud and thus, information is available to all users in real time. Another feature of the product is that there is no need to physically touch the device to receive the information, as it is transmitted without a box or container with the items being transported. So far, it is the only existing product for organ transplantation that is fully hermetic, sterilizable, submersible in preservation solution and with wireless recharging.
