The 2022 avian influenza outbreak in the U.S. highlighted the need for better biosecurity and traceability throughout the poultry supply chain.
Logistics planning technology integrates an organization’s already existing management software to plan and schedule loads and delivery. Producers, truck drivers, operational personnel, site managers and loading and catching teams can track the movement of products, feed and animals throughout the poultry supply chain with GPS and real-time communications.
For example, transport logistics planning allowed poultry producers divert shipments around potential and confirmed outbreaks to prevent the spread of avian flu, even if birds were already on a truck between farms or houses.
“A tool that can help us manage some of these things continually will help the integrators out there do a better job of saving birds and animals,” explained Mike Shindelar, CEO, DP Techlink.
Shindelar is one of the many experts scheduled to speak at the Poultry Tech Summit, scheduled for October 30 - November 1 in Atlanta, Georgia. This one-of-a-kind in-person event facilitates the transition of innovation technologies from researchers and entrepreneurs into commercial applications for the benefit of the poultry industry. Make plans to attend and take a look at the future of the industry.
Traceability in the blind spots of the food cycle
At a time when precision agriculture solutions are seeing rapid adoption across the industry, there is a major gap when it comes to the movement of agricultural cargo.
“We track poultry and other egg-based commodities through what we call the blind spots of the food cycle – when they’re on the trucks and moving from point to point,” Shindelar said.
“We try to fill that gap when they’re on trucks moving from point A to point B to keep a closed loop and a complete homogenous cycle of tracking where food is coming from.”
