Safely shipping milk

Researchers at the University of Kentucky have developed a Milk Transport and Traceability Security System aimed at improving food safety. It is designed to improve security and accountability within the milk delivery channel.

The demonstration system includes a small, user-friendly, hand-held computer device a hauler will use to enter typical milk ticket information. The hand-held device will provide the hauler with the most up-to-date information regarding pickup scheduling and logistics, among other data. The tanker is outfitted with a computer processor to store the milk data. And it is also equipped with a Global Positioning System unit, locks on the dome lid and rear door, a key pad to enter security codes when the hand-held device is not available and temperature sensors for the sample cooler and cargo.

The researchers plan to fine-tune the system in the coming year.
