A cold chain is a supply chain that is temperature-controlled. Cold chain technology is employed for the preservation and extension of the shelf life of products like pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals, photographic film, frozen food, seafood, and fresh agricultural produce. Cold chain logistics include all the means that are used to ensure the constant temperature maintenance for products that are not heat-stable, from the time of manufacturing up to when the product is used.

The technology to measure temperature variation of products through the Supply Chain is now really amazing.
