Crucial Factors for Transporting Pharmaceutical Products

Throughout shipping, pharmaceuticals are the most vulnerable. Managing security risks in the supply chain during transportation is critical in minimizing potential revenue loss and credibility for producers, distributors, and logistics providers. Training is needed to identify and deter potential pharmaceutical product adulteration or diversion.

Shipping pharmaceutical products requires a high level of knowledge to ensure safe transportation of pharmaceutical products. From the manufacturer to the delivery point, the integrity and value of a pharmaceutical product must be protected. The pharmaceutical industry, like the shipping industry, is working under tight regulations. Know the pharmaceutical shipping rules and get it right every time.

Cargo Temperature Concerns

The cargo must remain at a certain temperature for the transport of pharmaceuticals in order to maintain their safety and efficacy. Food, particularly frozen foods, and beverages may need to be shipped at a lower temperature than pharmaceuticals, but it is still important to ensure that cargo temperatures are maintained. The exact temperature can range from -58 degrees Fahrenheit to 46 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the pharmaceuticals you are delivering. Such medications could become unsafe to use without proper temperature controls.
