Smart ColdChain

To help preserve the quality of healthcare products such as vaccines and perishable food and flowers, Better Sense has been innovating on Cold Chain logistics solutions. What’s important is an industry-wide collaboration, including producers, retailers, distributors, cargo companies, and QA specialists. Better Sense’s contribution is on sensor device design, cloud tracking, and system integration.
