Modum works with the Institute for Supply Chain Management on a regular basis to contribute applied experience and gain insight from the school. Together we are currently developing a Commission for Technology and Innovation project.
We Are Modum
An agile & reliable partner
Modum was founded in 2016 by a group of entrepreneurs and experts in process innovation, digitalization and pharma logistics with the goal to digitalize supply chains of sensitive goods with the help of modern technology.
Modum focuses on the interoperability of systems and on governance of information exchange.
Read our history here:
The idea to combine IoT sensors and blockchain technology (DLT) to automate the monitoring of pharmaceuticals compliant with recently extended GDP regulations was born and validated together with UZH's Communications Systems Group. Shortly after modum.io AG was incorporated. Work started out of a tiny office in Zurich's Technopark on a couch salvaged from garbage.
Our Success Stories
With a drive to identify areas for further improving their supply chain operations, Zur Rose recognizes the simplicity and effectiveness of MODsense to deliver the data basis and insights needed to support optimizing their distribution operations at a reasonable cost, without comprising their high standards for quality.
"Modum's solution is remarkable because it integrates easily into our existing processes and makes reliable data collection flexible and highly user-friendly. MODsense helps us to optimize our distribution processes. In my opinion it is a very promising solution to comply with existing and future regulatory requirements."

Modum supports Chemgineering in developing a platform that simplifies and automates mapping studies required for the certification of warehouse rooms designed for sensitive goods storage. The solution reduces time to data, handling effort and thereby the overall cost of compliance, while at the same time providing additional insights through data analytics.
"In our collaboration with Modum to develop a new Room-Mapping-as-a-Service for our customers, we were deeply impressed by their commitment and speed. Thanks to Modum, we could launch an initial version of the product and showcase to customers in just six weeks!"
GLOBAL HEAD QUALIFICATION AND VALIDATION, CHEMGINEERING
In September 2019 the first live Cannabis sativa (Industrial Hemp) plants were legally imported to the United States from Switzerland and condition-monitored using Modum’s MODsense monitoring solution. Puregene relies on Modum for simple and digital monitoring solutions for shipping Cannabis seedlings and uses the gathered insights for improvement and optimization, for example in packaging.
"Digital simplicity - this is why I love Modum’s monitoring solution, which not only tracks the critical temperatures of our shipments but also how long they take to complete and whether the packages have been tampered with - all critical information if you are shipping live, valuable and regulated plant material."

To increase visibility and identify deviations without relying on their carriers, Schaer Pharma deploys MODsense over their wholesaler distribution network. With MODsense gateways installed at selected wholesalers, Schaer Pharma can further enhance automation with touch-less readout at lower costs than using real-time solutions.
"What I like about the MODsense solution is the ease-of-use when commissioning shipments as well as the simple and immediate access to measurement data – we have gained a new level of visibility regarding the conditions of our goods during transport. In addition, the Modum team is driven to get things done, putting an emphasis on finding solutions are pragmatic and simple to introduce into our existing process landscape."

Sarna Plastec AG
As part of their testing procedures in the development of thermal box solutions, Sarna Plastec benefits from MODsense’s accuracy and reliability coupled from the ability to easily read-out and process measurement data without having to physically attach the device to a computer. Measurement data of different loggers are digitally paired with test series ID, making manual testing lists a thing of the past.
"MODsense is a great tool to develop, test and validate new ThermoBoxes."

With MODsense fully integrated into their systems, Swiss Post can offer their customers a temperature monitoring solution for the secondary distribution and Last Mile at a low cost while providing their 15’000 postwomen and -men a simple means of acquiring measurement data without significant process changes.
"To stay ahead of the game, Swiss Post partners with start-ups – including Modum. Based on the principle that everyone does what they are good at, our Thermomonitoring solution was developed from this close cooperation. And this to the great benefit of our customers. Thank you Modum!"
HEAD OF PRODUCT AND MARKET DEVELOPMENT, SWISS POST
By integrating our MODsense into ORCA M thermal box of Intelsius, their customers benefit from an automated and simple multi-use temperature monitoring solution for the secondary and Last Mile distribution of sensitive goods. With increased visibility and reduced manual effort, quality control is enhanced at a lower Total Cost of Ownership, while increasing customer satisfaction.
We are an ambitious company, an outstanding team of brilliant talents with an open, transparent, and inclusive team culture. We are dedicated to providing an inspiring working environment and encourage everyone to voice their innovative ideas.
Each of us is working on stimulating, challenging, and diverse projects and tasks with lots of autonomy and the appropriate level of support.
Lastly, in order to stay productive and happy, we continually reevaluate our tools and processes and find solutions together as a team.
