Groundbreaking Wireless Technology Paves the Way for Automation and AI Integration in Food and Pharma Logistics
GRIMSBY, ON (January 4, 2024) — Bluicity Inc., a Canadian SAAS and IoT company dedicated to enhancing food and pharma supply chains through continuous live monitoring of location, integrity, safety, and product quality shipments, proudly announces the publication of its patent (US Patent Number 11,847,519) on crucial wireless technology. This technology ensures live, robust monitoring of products at the scale, density, and mobility essential for effective food and pharma logistics.

“Millions of reusable bins, totes, and pallets are used by food and pharmaceutical companies for storing and shipping products within their facilities and to customers. Persistent visibility of the location and condition of goods in these containers as they traverse the logistics chain will bring about significant improvements in spoilage prevention, product safety, and the ability to prove product provenance. Simultaneously, it will automate processes, reduce labor, and ensure compliance,” according to Bob Burrows, CEO of Bluicity.
