Clinical trials are a complex undertaking and a huge investment for the sponsor, taking a significant amount of time to complete and to produce a marketable drug.

However, while logistics is a support function for the overall trial operation, it also needs planning to function efficiently.

In a drug trial, ensuring that the investigational medicinal products (IMPs) reach the site in good condition and that samples travel from collection points to laboratories in correct environments is paramount. With lab specialisation requiring long transportation distances and the parallel supply chains of international, regional, and local hubs often working without visibility to each other, guaranteeing the integrity of the supply is not always easy.
