FedEx Hosts “The Future of Global Healthcare” Roundtable
FedEx recently hosted two virtual roundtables on ‘The Future of Global Healthcare’, in which FedEx executives discussed one the most exciting healthcare trends affecting the transportation industry: cold chain logistics.
In the past several years, no other aspect of supply chain logistics has expanded the possibilities of what can be moved safely from one place to another than advances in cold chain logistics.
The ability to control the temperature of cargo, with much greater precision than ever before, is having a profound impact on the healthcare sector. It is opening up new economic opportunities, and by providing access to emerging markets, enhancing the lives of millions globally.
