News stories have a way of going from the front page to the scrap heap, and even the spotlight focused on the supply chain over the past few years couldn’t prevent it from happening altogether.
One specific element of supply chain - cold chain logistics - recently resurfaced in coverage of the costs and challenges surrounding transport of Ozempic and Wegovy, different brand names for the same prescription injection.

In this week’s episode of Dial P for Procurement, Kelly Barner takes this opportunity to shine a light back on cold chain logistics:
- How it was developed and how supply chains expanded from cold storage to cold chain
- The many applications and innovations that allow cold chain to enrich our lives, whether we are watching it with baited breath or not
- The next level considerations supply chain professionals need to consider when managing or contracting for cold chain storage and delivery
