Which solution for the domestic transport of temperature-sensitive medicinal products?

14 November 2013

The “domestic” logistic circuit concerns the transport of temperature-sensitive medicinal products within the country, from the pharmaceutical companies and distribution centres to pharmacists, clinics and hospitals. What is the best solution to guarantee the domestic transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products?

Refrigerated vehicle or refrigerated packaging?

Which solution for the domestic transport of temperature-sensitive medicinal products?Refrigerated vehicles are often used for grouped transport or the transport of batches. Nevertheless, this solution requires specific equipment within establishments, such as platforms refrigerated to between +2 and +8 °C, and to -25 °C for sorting.

On the other hand, insulated packaging refrigerated through the use of gel packs allows various quantities of pharmaceutical products to be sent and stored over 24 or 48 hours.

The choice will depend on the logistic circuit (destination), volume, climatic conditions and the qualification of the solution. The two approaches can be combined in certain cases to avoid breaking the cold chain in transfer or delivery zones, or to protect products from temporary over-refrigeration below +2 °C.
