Encounters in Transportation

Supply chain logistics experts understand that the transportation of any type of goods comes with their own set of challenges. When cold chain logistics are taken into account, a new set of unique obstacles are introduced.

To start, the cold chain market is growing. According to Qy Research Groups’ Global Cold Chain Logistics Market Size, Status and Forecast 2022 report, the global cold chain market is expected to reach US $426.2 billion by 2022. Pharmaceutical Commerce reported that cold chain logistics spending is forecast to grow to more than US $16 billion by 2020. Data points back to the rising demand for pharmaceuticals as one of the main factors driving demand for the temperature-controlled supply chain. This demand also stems from an aging population, which, in turn, is starting to require more medication, which must stay at specified temperatures.

By 2050, 16% of the world’s population will be 65 or older. Baby Boomers started turning 65 in 2011, and the American Hospital Association projects that by 2030, more than 60% of this generation will be managing more than one chronic condition. Additionally, Milliman reports that increased life expectancies will trigger greater consumption patterns in the population for medical services and pharmaceuticals.

Mauritius Island – An Emerging Centre for R&D in Biotechnology and the Life Sciences

CIDP (Centre International de Développement Pharmaceutique)

Mauritius, the tropical island situated in the Indian Ocean and known worldwide for its beautiful beaches, is also internationally recognised for its rule of law, and political and social stability. Over the past few years, the economy has been successfully transitioned from a monocrop to a diversified innovation-driven and knowledge-based economy, resting on agribusiness, export-oriented manufacturing, tourism, financial services, property development and real estate, ICT-BPO, the seafood industry, a free port, logistics and a nascent ocean economy. Emerging sectors such as healthcare and life sciences are presenting some niche areas for the taking, and the enabling environment is being put in place to make it happen - especially in the light of sustained growth within pharmaceutical, medical device, and clinical research. Important international players are already in operation locally as the country has established the appropriate legal and regulatory frameworks based on international norms, for the development of a strong biomedical research sector.
