Un nuevo pedido que hacen los fabricantes de productos farmacéuticos
Los pedidos de los fabricantes están cambiando en la logística de especialidades. ¿Está preparado para cumplir las expectativas?
How are manufacturer requests changing in specialty logistics?
Mike Connolly: The biggest change in manufacturer expectations — is that they’re looking for transparency in the vendors that they’re selecting, and they’re looking for support in regulatory compliance issues. Largely, whereas I think, years ago, perhaps, the transportation element of pharmaceutical materials was an afterthought — now, GDP regulations have brought that to the forefront. One of the new requests that we’re getting from manufacturers is different keeping temperatures.
Whereas, a lot of shipments used to be transported simply on dry ice at less than minus 20 degrees Celsius — now, different packaging requirements for 2 to 8 Celsius, plus 15 to plus 25, controlled-room temperature and even deep freeze. So, there’s new packaging solutions that are available to our clients to maintain the integrity of that product at that temperature range in transit.
