IT vendors go for the cold

Following the lead of freight carriers and logistics providers, IT vendors are targeting the growing need for cold storage and transport. In at least one case, vendors are delivering a one-two punch in the form of cold chain management coupled with track-and-trace systems for establishing drug pedigree.

For vaccine and biologics manufacturers, end-to-end visibility may well be the holy grail of their regulatory affairs officers and supply chain managers. Aggregated data to provide such visibility would allow for making in-transit adjustments that could protect shipments.
