Life Science Logistics
Pharmaceutical cold chain transport isn’t like any other logistics market.
The issue of temperature excursions is crucial to pharmaceutical companies since many of their products require temperature-controlled storage and distribution to maintain their efficacy and other properties. The importance of keeping temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals within their prescribed ranges throughout their journey (including storage at their final destination) cannot be overstated. ZEP Transports follows all regulations and requirements to ensure a safe and secure cold supply chain transport.
Maintaining Pharmaceutical Temperatures
Temperature-controlled shipping is the most crucial factor to consider when shipping pharmaceuticals. The process usually involves product transportation in refrigerated trucks, storage in a refrigerated warehouse, and marketing and distributing the drugs or vaccines at their final destination.
Packaging Is Critical For Pharmaceuticals
Another guideline for shipping pharmaceuticals is that packaging must be meticulous and error-free. In addition to climate-controlled trucks, pharma products should be shipped in insulated containers. These thermal containers protect products from temperature fluctuations, damaging sunlight, humidity, and more.
Risks Of Shipping Pharmaceuticals
In addition to risks associated with temperature fluctuations, many risks are involved when shipping pharma products. In particular, cargo theft can be a significant concern that results in pharma products ending up on the black market and promoting crime.
