Controlant has announced its plan to host an informational webinar for its partners, customers, and concerned individuals regarding managing supply chain risks during COVID-19 global outbreak and regional quarantines. The webinar is titled: COVID-19: Strategies for Managing Supply Chain Risk and will take place on May 6, 2020, at 2 PM EDT / 11 AM PDT.

The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed the global temperature-controlled supply chain (or “cold chain”) in unimaginable ways. Stakeholders working at every step in the supply chain are scrambling to ensure continuity and maintain product integrity. Though the issues the supply chain faces are broad in scope, one thing most can attest to is that the risks to the cold supply chain—and its businesses—are growing exponentially by the hour.

Participants will take away a better understanding and actionable insights into:

  • How to manage risks in the supply chain during COVID-19
  • Using real-time technology to quickly identify and respond to risk in the current supply chain situation
  • Best practices for manufacturers dealing with a pandemic
