From the moment they leave the manufacturing site until they reach the patient, these products need to be kept in controlled conditions typically between +2 to +8°C and +15 to +25°C.

Support operations in this cold chain are dedicated to upholding these parameters and are just as crucial as any element of the drug discovery process itself, but why, in recent times, has industry dialogue started to centre around the area of logistics?
