Supply chain start-up in the spotlight: Logmore

Logmore, founded in Finland in 2017 and currently with offices in Helsinki and Jyväskylä, is on a mission to make the world smarter, one measurement at a time. Integrating big data and IoT, its clear, fast and secure data logging technology supports end-to-end logistics monitoring to help companies minimize costly and time-consuming rejected deliveries and returns due to spoiled or damaged goods.

Logmore’s solution comprises QR code tags connected to a cloud service. The dynamically generated QR codes can be scanned using any mobile device camera or QR scanner. Data about the condition of the goods during transport – such as temperature, humidity, ambient light, shocks and tilt – is automatically uploaded into the service’s cloud-based portal, which gives shippers and other stakeholders instant visibility throughout the supply chain. Since the tags can be easily integrated into packages, shipments can be monitored right up until they reach the end user, which is especially useful for home deliveries of items such as food and electronics. The tags can even be used in airborne supply chains.

Logmore Dry Ice Logger

The company’s latest product, the Logmore Dry Ice Logger, is a high-spec version of the original data recorder that has been adapted for cold and sub-zero conditions all the way down to -100°C. This makes it ideal for the transport of pharmaceutical items and in particular for the newly developed COVID-19 vaccines, which require deep-freeze storage of as low as -80ºC throughout their journey. Due to the fact that the information is logged to the internal memory and no Bluetooth or USB port connections are required to store and sync the data, the Logmore Dry Ice Logger is significantly more secure than other similar solutions. Moreover, no specialized hardware or software is required to scan or access the data.

Logmore has already been adopted by more than 150 enterprise quality management teams and demand continues to grow. The company recently received a fresh capital injection in a successful Series A funding round which it will mainly use to support its international expansion, particularly in North America, Asia and Europe. Logmore was named by Forbes as one of the Top 20 Start-ups to Watch in 2020.
