Agreement focused on enhancing insights into the location and condition of temperature-sensitive drugs and vaccines, including ones for Covid-19
Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), a manufacturer of reusable and single-use thermal packaging for the life sciences industry, has struck a partnership with Cloudleaf, a provider of SaaS-based artificial intelligence, IoT (internet of things), digital twin and advanced analytics technology, to launch Cold Chain Technologies Smart Solutions. The offering is based on Cloudleaf's Digital Visibility Platform, and will provide a real-time look into the location and condition of temperature-sensitive drugs and biologics, including the Covid-19 vaccines being transported in CCT's thermal shipping containers—down to the last mile.
As the Covid-19 vaccine rollout continues to intensify, CCT will be able to provide its customers 24/7 visibility through Cold Chain Technologies Smart Solutions, including product location and condition, to ensure vaccines arrive on time with maintained temperature requirement adherence throughout the whole shipping process.
Other than vaccines, the solution will help track factors for drugs and biologics, such as location, temperature and vibration, along with data streams about weather, traffic, flight schedules and more. This can remove blind spots in the supply chain and flag potential issues, so that they can be rectified before a product is compromised.
