Controlling the environment and end-to-end visibility are infinitely more difficult when the cargo is temperature-controlled medical specimens. Agility created a more responsive, visible supply chain in Abu Dhabi for its first-time healthcare customer. It implemented rapid pickups and specimen stability via vans and motorbikes outfitted with temperature-controlled compartments from 150 UAE locations for delivery to multiple labs. Staff members receive special training to process documentation and handle samples with alarms warning for corrective action en route if temperatures fluctuate out of range.
Transit time of fragile specimens is reduced with Agility’s customized software for handheld devices, a route optimization module, real-time dispatch and live updates. All these solutions provide detailed visibility for each step in this medical specimens’ supply chain.
