1:00 PM Cold Chain Management: The Last Mile is the First Mile to Improve

The demand for reliable cold chain solutions is on the rise as manufacturers move into new markets and launch new clinical research programs, including the development of cell, gene, and tissue therapies. Ensuring the integrity of the cold chain has become more important, and more challenging, than ever. Our workshop will highlight current innovations in last mile logistics and present some insider tips for maintaining quality from point of origin to final destination

What you will learn:
  • What is the history of the cold chain and what are the future trends?
  • What the airlines and freight forwarders don’t tell you and that you need to know
  • What are the right questions to ask when shipping temperature-controlled cargo?
  • Pros and cons of active vs passive containers, cross-docking, and more
