CAPS Enhances Container-Tracking Software for Food Shippers

CAPS, a provider of container-management services, has developed a new version of CAPS-TRAC, its container-tracking software.

The tool enables users to capture, store and report on newly added data points. In addition to tracking individual container IDs and contents, users can monitor quality-related data throughout the supply chain, including product temperature, weight and safety seal numbers. Launch of the new tracking and data-recording features was timed to coincide with the introduction of more stringent government and industry food-safety regulations, such as the recently enacted Food Safety Modernization Act. In addition to its full-service, returnable shipping container rental programs, CAPS offers a standalone, reusable container-management application delivered in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) mode. CAPS-TRAC resides in a secure cloud environment and is available from any internet-accessible computer. Data can be captured via mobile scanning devices or radio frequency identification-enabled portals.
