Key Takeaways: Vaccinating the Supply Chain
Vaccine Supply Chain and Logistics Challenges
- There are many supply chain, transportation, and logistical challenges facing the healthcare community tasked with developing and rolling out the vaccines. Some of the top concerns are:
- Distribution capacity to move the vaccine from production facilities to clinics, hospitals, and doctors’ offices.
- Maintaining ultra-low temperature to ensure the integrity of the vaccine.
- Safe, secure transfer of the vaccine.
- Visibility of the vaccine from production to consumer.
Driving Visibility, Security, and Accurate Audit Logs
- Many medical and pharma supply chain managers use BoxLock’s access control and inventory management solution to make supply chains more accountable, more reliable, and more efficient, wherever assets are transferred.
- BoxLock has developed a unique padlock with a scanner that enables supply chain visibility and security at the point of asset transfer.
- The smart padlock works with a broad range of hasped storage containers, refrigerators, cabinets, and doors, for maximum compatibility and security. Note: a hasp is the metal hinge mechanism that enables a container or door to be locked.
- BoxLock is easy for delivery drivers to recognize and use for unattended deliveries. For secure unattended deliveries, the package barcode is scanned by the padlock scanner, the container opens, and the package can be put in the secure container and locked.
- The BoxLock scanner can also be used to facilitate secure vaccine transfer within biotechs, manufacturers, labs, hospitals, and clinics.
- In medical facilities, personnel badges can be scanned by the BoxLock scanner. The scan feature enables real-time visibility and a more accurate audit log.
