We at SmartCAE are the founders of the Virtual Cold Chain. Our software products and services increase the efficiency of all players in temperature-controlled logistics, from packaging vendors to logistics providers and pharmaceutical companies.
Our digital approach has opened up a whole new perspective in the field. It is now possible to reliably quantify the lane risk for thermal excursions in a matter of a few hours. Compare this to the weeks and months of costly test shipments, with limited statistical relevance, in traditional lab and field tests. With it comes a new dimension of transparency: pharma companies can compare the total cost of ownership for packaging solutions of the various vendors, for their specific distribution lanes.
In this way, we assist companies to improve their processes, minimize time to market, limit unnecessary waste, and reduce the billions of dollars lost in the cold chain due to temperature excursions.
