Cold Chain Integrity

Intelligent Cold Chain

From the factory to the consumer, end-to-end traceability enables safe distribution of products, such as food, pharmaceuticals and vaccines. Integrated data provides actionable guidance and transparency across supply chain processes with complete and up-to-date stakeholder insights. This shared information enables compliance with regulations; minimizes spoilage; efficient handling of recalls; and reduces defects, returns, or rework. It also helps companies become intelligent enterprises that are more resilient, profitable and sustainable.
