As cold chain losses continue to plague pharmaceutical companies, reliable transport has become paramount. Approximately 4% of pharmaceuticals do not arrive at their destination in usable condition due to temperature deviations. This costs companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted supplies and quality analyses. For this reason, it is critical for pharmaceutical shipping companies to invest in transport containers that can maintain the exact temperatures required for their contents.
The use of high-quality cold transport containers in the pharmaceutical transportation process is essential for ensuring that pharmaceutical companies can overcome the numerous shipping obstacles they face:
The most important and obvious benefit of refrigerated pharmaceutical shipping containers is their ability to maintain appropriate temperatures throughout the transportation cycle (or even for static storage steady temperature control at a production facility). A temperature variation of as little as two degrees can be enough to spoil the product, which could result in losses totaling hundreds or thousands of dollars for smaller orders and millions for larger shipments.
Today, pharmaceutical reefer units are available that will control the temperature of pharmaceutical products and allow the shipper to monitor it throughout the journey. These containers are equipped with sensors that can detect small temperature variations.
Klinge offers several pharmaceutical transport container options to meet the temperature requirements of pharma products from -65°C up to 20°C, including dual-redundant options with optional integral power packs and remote monitoring. This enables the shipper to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the journey regardless of the atmospheric conditions.
