Cold chain is a highly sensitive area of supply chain, which in itself is a complex system, widely used in the pharmaceutical, biological, and medical industries. Due to the nature of the products being carried, a sound cold chain is essential to ensure that crucial and critical supplies reach hospitals, production plants, and consumers on time and in full.
Real-time visibility and tracking are critical in order to ensure the accuracy of orders, delivery reliability, management of inventory, and that companies in these high-value, highly regulated industries remain compliant.
Cold chain management solutions focused on pharma and biologicals are now available
Tive, the global leader in supply chain and logistics visibility technology, has announced a portfolio of real-time cold chain management logistics solutions for pharmaceutical, biologicals, and cell gene therapy companies.
Tive’s multi-sensor Solo 5G trackers capture and transmit hyper-accurate location and temperature data of shipments in real-time—enabling customers to actively monitor in-transit shipments, take action when deviations occur, and identify areas for supply chain improvements.
With this announcement about cold chain solutions for pharma and biologicals, Tive now covers the full range of temperatures required to protect all critical cold chain shipments—including dry ice and cryogenic shipments. In addition to lithium and non-lithium Solo 5G trackers (TT-7000/TT-7100) already covering the temperature range of -30°C to +60°C, Tive is adding new trackers with probes that will reach -200°C to monitor dry ice and cryogenic shipments.
“Tive dedicated a tremendous amount of energy to create hardware and software offerings that give biotech, pharmaceutical, and cell gene therapy companies a complete cold chain solution—as well as a tremendous competitive advantage,” says Krenar Komoni, Tive CEO & Founder. “As the demand for low and ultra-low temperature shipments increases, it becomes even more critical for companies across the globe to have complete in-transit visibility—so they can deliver high-quality products that assure patient safety.”
“Biocair wants the best of the best, and that’s why we use Tive: they offer a full cold chain solution that enables us to be proactive rather than reactive—at every point in the supply chain,” says Robert Pagan, Packaging Solutions Engineer at Biocair. “We are an extremely customer-centric company, and by using Tive we demonstrate to our clients that we are on the cutting edge of technology and medicine—to better serve them, and to set ourselves apart from the competition.”
Approved for use on more than 130 air carriers, Tive’s solutions are GxP compliant and all the components (hardware and software) are developed and tested following the Good Automated Manufacturing Practice 5 (GAMP 5) model.
A 3-Point NIST®-traceable Certificate of Calibration is included with every Tive Solo 5G tracker, and both trackers and probes are fully calibrated by an ISO® 17025 accredited laboratory. In addition, the Tive cloud-based application complies with both FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 requirements. Tive is SOC® 2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 compliant.
