“The cold chain is in greater demand now more than ever,” said David Appel, president, refrigeration, Carrier.

“Carrier technology plays a leading role in the safe transport of medicine and the global effort to reduce food loss and waste, and greenhouse gas emissions.”

Appel was the keynote presenter for the Cold Chain 4 Life conference, held in conjunction with World Refrigeration Day 2020.

“Covid-19 shines an even brighter spotlight on the cold chain and getting food and medicine to those most in need,” Appel said at the virtual conference.

“Cold chain system resiliency has proven to be an essential element to supply availability. We see that in the life sciences segment, monitoring strict temperature compliance is mission-critical to the delivery of diagnostic test kits, clinical-trial materials and vaccines.”

“Greater connectivity is an essential piece of the future for the entire cold chain,” Appel said. “We envision and are working to build an end-to-end cold chain that will reduce cost and waste in today’s cold chain network.”
