DeltaTrak and Modality Solutions partner to address cold-chain technical issues

Risk assessment/mitigation is a key unmet need

DeltaTrak (Pleasonton, CA), manufacturers and service providers of environmental monitoring solutions, and Modality Solutions (Indianapolis), an engineering-consulting firm, have expanded a partnership whereby Modality can provide value-added services for cold-chain management processes at manufacturers and logistics providers. Specific services include gap analysis for GDP/GMP compliance, cargo security audits, risk and environmental assessments, among others.

Peter Norton, director of business development at DeltaTrak, notes that Modality is not a reseller for his company, but does serve to raise the awareness level of organizations involved in temperature-controlled distribution in ways that could be beneficial to DeltaTrak. “A key area is the requirements in new GDP regulations for performing risk assessments and risk mitigation,” he says. “To be fully compliant, companies need to look beyond their day-to-day processes.”

“Partnering with DeltaTrak allows us to offer cost-effective monitoring solutions and FlashTrak Telematics technology to help improve cold chain management from manufacturing to distribution,” said Modality president, Gary Hutchinson, in a statement.

DeltaTrak offers reusable and single-use dataloggers, temperature indicators, and software and online systems for shipment tracking. Most recently, a vaccine datalogger equipped with a glycol-encased temperature probe (in order to stabilize temperature readings) has been prequalified for use by the World Health Organisation.
