Protective Packaging

Pharmaceutical companies and their logistics partners are enjoying more availability and scope of temperature-controlled distribution lanes within pharma supply chains than ever before.

This has led to the current trend of moving away from temperature-controlled packaging, particularly as well-controlled distribution lanes and effective thermal covers become the norm. Designed to provide a greater level of protection within uncontrolled distribution lanes and general cargo facilities, temperature-controlled packaging can be costly and offer low payload efficiency, particularly for controlled distribution lanes where they are often over-engineered and provide a higher level of protection than actually required.

As a result, thermal protection solutions are becoming increasingly popular. However, this is bringing its own set of challenges, including a lack of a consistent approach to product performance assessment.
