Imagine a time when your entire pharma supply chain is fully connected – providers and technologies at every step in the chain are able to communicate without dialing a number or sending an email. Full transparency into location and condition, with predictions on arrival times, free from human error, equipment malfunctions and disconnected systems. 


Carrier and its Sensitech business are working to deliver on that vision. A connected cold chain utilizes digital systems to enhance end-to-end visibility with intelligence and practical data to preserve, protect and reliably deliver medicines, reduce waste and care for our growing planet.


This presentation will explore how we are driving a healthier, safer and more sustainable cold chain – just when it matters most.
