We put the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to work to optimize your cold chain and protect your fragile or temperature-sensitive therapeutics in transit. Using a proprietary process and advanced modeling capabilities, Modality Solutions helps you arrive at the optimal decision when it comes to choosing shipping lanes and thermal packaging.
First, we feed your weather data variables—based on your shipping origin, destination, and date—into a machine learning algorithm that predicts the shipping lane temperature and displays it in an easy-to-use graphical format.
The result: An accurate calculation of the predicted temperature your thermal packaging will experience inside the truck (not the ambient temperature), which enables us to gauge how heat will transfer into your packaging.
Next, we use our advanced container model to optimize all shipping lanes, packaging options, service levels, and shipping days for your drug product. The model uses your shipping date and time, lane temperature data, and container temperature data to calculate the expected heat transfer to your packaging—solving many equations simultaneously, much faster than industry-standard models.
The result: A decision matrix that displays the cost/risk ratio for various containers, enabling you to make the best choice.
Modality offers an unrivaled combination of technical capabilities and solutions that drive and leverage our AI platform, helping to guide advanced therapies through regulatory filing to the commercial market.

We help prepare you for a successful regulatory filing every step of the way—assessing your cold chain, drug stability, packaging, and third-party logistics qualifications; developing a validation master plan; conducting transport simulation testing; and preparing your team for the CTD submission and pre-approval inspection.
Whether you need turnkey support or you want to augment your in-house resources, our customizable Transport Simulation Solutions can deliver the robust data regulators expect during your drug’s review and approval. We assess transport risks, develop validation master plans, and rigorously test drug formulations and packaging for the five hazards that can occur in transport—concurrently and at the edges of the supply chain’s operating space—through our ISO-certified Advantage Transport Simulation Laboratory™.
Modality Solutions can conduct rigorous, comprehensive testing of your therapeutic against a wide range of ASTM and ISTA standards at our independent Advantage Transport Simulation Laboratory™ or a third-party lab—ranging from plunger movement studies to confirm sterility and efficacy, to drug-device functionality testing, and many other applications.
When you’re preparing for a new filing, responding to an Information Request, or looking to improve the supply chain for a commercial product, our Engineering Consulting Solutions are invaluable. Our cold chain subject matter experts draw on their extensive experience to help you overcome complex supply chain challenges, reduce risk, and meet regulatory requirements at every phase.
We help enhance your cold chain’s performance for therapeutics that have already reached the commercial market—reducing shipping and packaging costs while ensuring your drug product remains protected in transit. From package design engineering and evaluation, to packaging selection support, to logistics network design, our Cold Chain Optimization Solutions ensure your supply chain is up to the challenge of transporting fragile or controlled-temperature therapies.
