Adding Track and Trace for Cold Chain Compliance

What happens if a shipment of temperature-sensitive drugs or cell or gene therapies experiences a temperature excursion in transit? If you had no temperature monitoring, you would have to throw the expensive therapies away. If you did have a passive temperature logger in the shipment, you would have to download the data, analyze it and then determine if the therapy is usable. This quality check process can take hours to days, depending on location, all while the patient is waiting. In the meantime, you are also probably ordering another shipment of the product expedited. There is so much loss in time, resources, costs, and patient health in this type of supply chain.

CSafe Global believes in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud services; there has to be a better way to minimize losses and better meet patient needs. Working with ParkourSC, their specific design Air Cargo track and trace technology, as well as their Parcel and Cell & Gene packaging solutions, were integrated with ParkourSC’s supply chain operational platform to provide track and trace visibility to all their containers and cold chain packaging solutions.

Preventing and Alerting to Temperature Excursions

Before ParkourSC any temperature excursions would only be discovered after delivery, wasting valuable time for the patient. Now, their customers can be alerted to possible temperature excursions and reroute the shipment or immediately send a duplicate shipment. This in-transit temperature tracking data can immediately inform their customer if the product quality is intact and can be used. In addition, the temperature data and location data allow CSafe Global and its customers to optimize their carriers better and prevent these excursions in the future.

With ParkcourSC, CSafe Global can predict the thermal efficiency of their packages and recommend the best packaging, shipping containers, and shipping methods to maintain quality in-transit.
