Carrier’s Lynx takes Edison Award for innovation

Palm Beach, California, USA: Carrier’s Lynx digital platform, a finalist in the Edison Awards, has won a silver ranking for excellence in the supply chain innovation category.

The Edison Awards are a globally respected leader in honoring the highest levels of new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation.

The Lynx system, co-developed with Amazon Web Services, is an integrated suite of tools aimed at dramatically reducing food waste, increasing food security and helping better protect and preserve perishables.

“The Lynx digital platform can help deliver temperature-controlled cargo more efficiently, in turn decreasing the cost of cold chain operations by optimizing resource utilization and reducing cargo loss and spoilage,” Carrier says.

“Our Lynx ecosystem provides customers with capabilities for end-to-end tracking of cargo and real-time alerts about cargo and equipment conditions, which can greatly benefit the transport, food and pharmaceutical industries,” said Alice DeBiasio, vice president and general manager, Sensitech and Carrier Refrigeration Digital Solutions.

“Lynx can positively impact people every day – helping to ensure food reaches tables worldwide in optimal condition, and medications can be safely moved for patient use and clinical trials, all while helping to alleviate global hunger and reduce the environmental and societal impacts of food waste.”
