Challenges with
Pharma Cold Chain

Today, the most common method of tracking the pharma cold chain is using passive or active data loggers, leading to:

Challenge #1

Manual touchpoints in passive data logging making data capture delayed and unusable for preventive action.

Challenge #2

Visibility is limited to basic location and condition, even if the data captured is in real-time.

Challenge #3

Inability to identify the root cause of excursions nor foresee the impact on quality control (QC) or stock planning.

How Roambee's Solution Works for Pharma Cold Chains

Step 1: Visibility

Better visibility by combining order information with real-time location and condition data from NIST-certified IoT sensors and data streams from port/airport operations, vessel/airline traffic, freight forwarders, and carrier data aggregation platforms.

Step 2: Alerts & Signals

Built on verifiable visibility, alerts, & signals on a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant platform for better decisions and automation. For example, a business signal about quality compliance (QC) is derived by sensing temperature and handling to mitigate supply risk.

Step 3: Intelligence

Use AI-powered network insights & foresights for better supply chain planning & execution. For example, score quality compliance (QC) performance by lane, carrier, port, and airport and forecast this key performance indicator (KPI).

  • Increase revenue by delivering a flawless order fulfillment experience and transparency.
  • Increase revenue by maintaining quality stock at every distribution center to serve patients on time.
  • Reduce inventory holding costs with predictable deliveries and increase sustainability with lesser wastage owing to rejected goods.

Empowering You With Our Intelligence


  • OTIF performance scoring by lanes, carriers, and nodes.
  • Quality compliance (QC) performance across lanes, carriers, and nodes for cold chain and handling.
  • Dwell-time/Turnaround-time (TAT) insights into airports, ports, and transshipment operations.


  • Supply risk prediction at any given node on any given day.
  • OTIF and cold chain compliance SLA (service level agreements) predictions by lanes and carriers.
  • Handling and security risk predictions at airports, ports, transshipment locations, and during the first/last mile.


One of the world's largest pharma companies headquartered in the US automated its quality control. They were able to predict quality acceptance of their in-transit vaccine shipments days before they arrive at a distribution center or customer location using Roambee's business signals. Roambee further narrowed in on the top 20 lanes that generated 6X stoppage times (24 days as against an average of 4 to 5 days) out of their 500+ lanes and also demonstrated quality compliance by airline, carrier, and transporter on these lanes to better plan temperature excursion and security risk mitigations. It helped the firm reduce costs, mitigate supply risks, and become more sustainable through lesser wastage.
