Today, the world is experiencing the biggest vaccination effort in its history. As of August 16, more than 35.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were being administered daily. While equitable distribution of vaccines and vaccine technology are rightly in the spotlight, another significant issue needs to be addressed: vaccine wastage. Dr. Ümit Kartoğlu, a consultant on vaccine-quality related issues for Sensitech Inc., has written this article explaining what manufacturers can do to reduce the amount of COVID-19 vaccine wastage.
Connecticut has been leading the nation in vaccinating its citizens against COVID-19, and was the first state to reach the key milestone of half its adult population vaccinated. Contributing to the success of the state’s effort is a partnership between Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Health (YNHH). Learn how Yale is using Sensitech's TempTale® technology to constantly monitor the temperature of the drugs from arrival to vaccination, which the CDC has noted as a best practice.
Carrier is providing Atrium Health with Sensitech® real-time cargo monitoring devices that can provide data, which its Lynx™ digital solution can analyze to reduce the risk of vaccine temperature excursions or loss.
As COVID-19 vaccine distribution efforts continue to expand to reach all populations, Sensitech is proud to collaborate with Aon as they launch this innovative industry collaboration targeted to protect global vaccine shipments. The solution provides transparent cargo insurance coverage for COVID-19 vaccines by combining real-time sensor data and analytics. Aon will donate 100 percent of all revenues earned from this new solution in 2021 to a charity dedicated to eradicating the global human and economic toll of the pandemic.
The Sensitech Supply Chain Intelligence Center is mentioned in this article from Indicador Automotriz about the costs of cargo theft in Mexico, one of the four highest risk countries for cargo theft in the world. Cargo theft in Mexico costs almost 300 million dollars annually, and this article also explains some steps companies can take to mitigate this risk.
Leading supply chain visibility provider Sensitech has expanded its suite of IoT devices to include air-carrier approved and non-lithium battery models for real-time tracking of shipments when cargo is traveling by plane. The enhanced family of TempTale®GEO and VizComm™ View products support shipments including vaccines, pharmaceuticals and test kits with validated data, enabling critical accept/reject decision-making, regardless of how cargo is moving − by air, land or sea.
Sensitech's Scott Martino, Director of Global Intelligence, is quoted in this article from Transport Topics about the substantial increase of cargo theft in recent years, and some of the solutions that logistics carriers are using to mitigate the risk.
In this article from Italy's La Repubblica, AirSea talks about how they've been meeting the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic for the pharmaceutical supply chain. For thirty years, AirSea has responded to these challenges, as the exclusive distributor of Sensitech products to the life sciences market in Italy.
Drugmakers, the U.S. military, and shipping giants UPS and FedEx are working together to move millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines into healthcare facilities across the country, and behind the scenes another set of companies is hard at work keeping those vaccines safe in transit. Firms that specialize in Internet of Things (IoT) sensor and software technology could have a crucial role to play in the cold chain storage required to keep the vaccines intact.
