The Virtual Cold Chain – Computer Aided Engineering
A Simple and Effective platform that looks at the total cost of ownership – cost/risk Ratio

• Where did the idea of a virtual cold chain come from?
• Sharing of data and confidence to be open is the challenge – if accepted, there will be huge benefits and cost savings
• How digital cold chains help to understand your real risk of temperature excursion?
• What is meant by over engineering in the cold chain?
• Why is there still so much wastage in Pharma and PER?

Great support products:
1. Thermal Packing
2. Temperature profiles
3. Lane profiles

And of course, Mr.Shippy – a great idea for a cartoon character telling the story – keeping it simple, keeping it smart!

Nice session with a leader who shows how much he cares and is engaged.
