DESCRIPTION One of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies is extending deployment of the MaxTrace™ predictive cloud engine following the successful completion of an 8-week proof-of-value initiative in October 2021. This was phase 1 of a multi-phase collaboration...
Data-Driven Risk Mitigation
Assessing “lane risk” is critical in managing and mitigating temperature excursions.
Working with a top 5 biopharma company, the MaxTrace team identified high-risk global lanes and analyzed historical temperature data from passive temperature loggers to identify the root cause for temperature excursions. Detailed RCA revealed several contributing factors, including insufficient thermal packaging, user errors in pre-conditioning, and thermal shock during shipment initiation. Transport data analysis also revealed that delayed deliveries were one of the root causes of temperature excursions.
Implementing our recommended countermeasures, for example, a route change saving 6 hours and an upgraded thermal packaging more suitable for the lane characteristics, provided immediate value to the customer. Potentially saving millions of dollars worth of product, but most importantly, ensuring product and patient safety.
“MaxTrace allows us to leverage real-time data to understand and prevent temperature excursions for high-value pharmaceutical shipments. Integration with MaxTrace is seamless, and the data provided is highly actionable.”
Optimize your Temperature-Controlled Supply Chain
Managing a temperature-controlled supply chain is no small feat. With a wide assortment of data streams to monitor, finding the root cause of a temperature excursion or lane risk can be a trying task. We aim to simplify this process, helping biopharma and other cold chain companies work through these challenges and implement a data-driven mitigation plan.
We are dedicated to helping you find the root cause and develop countermeasures by equipping your operations with robust and actionable thermal intelligence.
Identify and Mitigate Cold Chain Complexities
By analyzing various data streams such as shipping containers, product requirements, stability budget, carrier milestones, temperature data, transport data, and more we will work with you to develop thermal intelligence to maximize the efficiency of your supply chain.
