On the third episode of Medically Necessary, reporter Matt Blois talks to Cold Chain Technologies CEO Ranjeet Banerjee.
Cold Chain Technologies provides logistics services for temperature sensitive materials in the life sciences industry and has been a big part of the effort to distribute COVID-19 vaccines.
The recent vaccine rollout has pushed the cold chain into the spotlight. But even before the pandemic, the growth of biologics and gene therapies — complex medicines that require sensitive temperature control — was driving demand for logistics services in the life sciences industry.
Banerjee explains the supply chain implications stemming from the growth of biologics and gene therapies. He also talks about how the pandemic affected the business of transporting sensitive drugs, as well as the industry’s future.
