Deliver the Goods

Todays pharmaceutical companies, contract research organisations (CROs) and drug distributors face everincreasing challenges in maintaining the stability and validity of their products in transit. With clinical trials being conducted in new markets and a wide range of countries, the logistics involved in delivering time-critical and temperature controlled investigational medicinal products (IMP) within stability becomes even more challenging. The specialist biopharmaceutical courier companies have risen to this challenge and developed a range of solutions to meet these challenges.

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED VEHICLE

Temperature controlled vehicles (TCVs) are capable of maintaining a range of temperatures during transit from -25C up to +20C through the use of on-board refrigeration and air conditioning units which heat or chill the air in the insulated cargo compartment of the vehicle to the temperature set. Clinical trial medicines that need to be kept between +2 and +8C can be collected from the shipper, loaded into a pre-conditioned TCV and then driven directly to the consignee anywhere within the UK, Western Europe, Eastern Europe and as far afield as Russia.
