The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed the global temperature-controlled supply chain (or “cold chain”) in unimaginable ways. Stakeholders working at every step in the supply chain are scrambling to ensure continuity and maintain product integrity.

Though the issues we face are broad in scope, one thing everyone along the chain can attest to is that the risks to the cold supply chain – and its businesses – are growing exponentially by the hour. 

You’ll take away a better understanding and actionable insights into:

  • How to manage risks in the supply chain during COVID-19
  • Using real-time technology to quickly identify and respond to risk in the current supply chain situation
  • Best practices for manufacturers dealing with a pandemic
