Session 8: Airfreight Pharma digital event

Icelandic start-up Controlant emerged as one of the key players in the race to distribute the Pfizer vaccine around the world. The firm utilises a unique real-time supply chain monitoring technology based on GSM networks that is specifically geared to areas like pharmaceuticals and life sciences.
We’re delighted to welcome co-founder Erlingur Brynjulfsson who gives an in-depth presentation for us titled ‘Covid-19 Vaccine Distribution and the Supply Chain Revolution’.

Also discussed:

– Collaboration with stakeholders throughout the distribution network.
– How they helped stakeholders overcome the ultra-cold supply chain challenges.
– How they scaled up operations as the complexity increased.
– Future applications of this technology beyond vaccine distribution.
