What is the Cold Chain Management?
A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of refrigerated production, storage and distribution activities, along with associated equipment and logistics, which maintain the desired low-temperature range.
Cold chain logistics includes all of the means used to ensure a constant temperature for a product that is not heat stable, from the time it is manufactured until the time it is used. Moreover, the cold chain is considered a science, a technology, and a process. It is a science as it requires the understanding of the chemical and biological processes associated with product perishability. It is technology as it relies on physical means to ensure desirable temperature conditions along the supply chain. It is a process as a series of tasks must be performed to manufacture, store, transport and monitor temperature sensitive products.
What is PIMM™ Cold Chain Management (CCM)?
PIMM™ Cold Chain Management (CCM) provides “end to end visibility” for your cold chain. The system MONITORS, ANALYZES and MANAGES the entire distribution process:
- From supplier plants
- 3rd party carriers
- 3rd party cold storage/distribution centers outbound delivery fleet
- in-store cold storage
PIMM™ Cold Chain Management (CCM) collects and analyzes valuable cold storage information and shares any/all relevant corrective actions with the appropriate supply chain partners. Real-time process management allows for a more effective cold chain process which extends “shelf life”, reduces rejections/returns, improves quality and enhances customer satisfaction at all levels.
