Logistics is considered a mission-critical component of the pharmaceutical industry since its activities are extremely sensitive to time and quality assurance.
Despite the pharmaceutical industry facing unprecedented challenges related to globalisation and government controls over pricing, major challenges still lie in ensuring optimal shipping.
This is because, fundamentally, pharma products require temperature-controlled storage and distribution, with strict regulatory control.
The industry is striving to deliver life-saving products to the end customers, at the right time and place, in a secure manner and at a competitive operational cost. This is why we thought it prudent to uncover some of the elements that underpin the shipping of pharmaceuticals.
How are pharmaceutical products transported?
Pharma products are typically transported in refrigerated containers called offshore reefers.
These reefers usually undergo routine inspections to ensure they are in satisfactory condition to maintain medicinal inventory at correct temperatures.
Generally, pharma logistics demand strict adherence to regulation codes to ensure drugs and vaccines are safely delivered, without spoilage or losing their potency.
However, pharma supply chain tasks are very challenging as most shippers are required to uphold cold chain procedures whilst preventing theft in transit, and implementing special precautions to move specialised pharma products.
This is because pharma shipping procedures are arguably a matter of life and death as mismanaged shipments put the health of many at risk.
