Due to its special requirements, pharmaceutical transportation involves a few challenges. One of the biggest challenges is temperature control and monitoring during transportation.
Temperature control and monitoring:
It is extremely important to control and monitor temperatures during the transportation of temperature-sensitive products. The use of special cooling devices, thermometers and data loggers makes it possible to ensure temperature stability during transportation. It is also important that the transport vehicle has the necessary cooling or heating systems to maintain a constant temperature. Temperature monitoring should be continuous in order to detect and correct possible deviations before they can lead to quality problems.
Packaging and labeling of medicines:
Packaging must ensure that medicines are protected from external influences during transportation. Special packaging materials such as temperature-controlled containers or insulated packaging can help to maintain the stability of the medication.The labeling of the medication must be clear and correct to enable clear identification and traceability. This includes information such as the manufacturer's name, batch number, expiry date and storage requirements. Accurate labeling also makes it easier to check the medication efficiently on arrival.
