For many years, pharmaceutical companies shipping temperature-sensitive goods have relied on temperature loggers to monitor the condition of in-transit products. These logging devices have become cheap, reliable and ubiquitous. But if your organization relies solely on these devices to monitor your cold chain, you are living in the past.

In his recent Pharmaceutical Executive op ed, Tive CRO and Co-Founder Rob Stevens shares his perspective on the benefits and shortcomings of data loggers in a pharma supply chain. While acknowledging their usefulness as a low-cost temperature monitoring solution, Rob goes on to discuss how new IoT technologies are changing the game when it comes to cold chain management.
