Standardization & Risk Management in Cold Chain

Working within the ever-changing cold chain requires extremely detailed planning, extensive preparation, and precise execution. While these techniques vary immensely across the globe, risk management is necessary and standardization is the key goal for everyone. This complimentary whitepaper dives deeper into this idea, with specific focuses on supply chain security, validation & lane qualification, data monitoring in shipping lanes, and stability budgets.

Temperature Controlled Logistics: Optimising Strategies and Cost-Balancing

In the mission to further refine a pharmaceutical’s path to market: Risk conduct, compliance and cost balancing are three key pillars to be optimised in any temperature controlled logistics strategy.

Decision Making Agility: Temperature Controlled Logistics Reactions

Damage from disruptions in the supply chain can’t be completely eradicated, however they can be mitigated. Disruptions could occur in the form of natural disasters, equipment/vehicle failure or unforeseen transport delays. Companies which apply –what if – scenarios are noted to be much better equipped and agile towards facing unforeseen occurrences in the supply chain. A wrong decision made within the temperature controlled transit of a pharmaceutical, may not only be costly in a financial sense but it also in terms of physical harm caused to patients in extreme cases.
