Where most employees are used to receiving a Christmas gift personally, this will be different this year. The corona measures ensure that many people work from home whenever possible. Employers who want to give their employees a Christmas gift will probably have to send it. But how do they ensure that the package arrives at the recipient without damage, while retaining quality?
Every day we are confronted with reports about the development of the corona vaccine. Who will develop the most influential vaccine, when is it available and for whom? Where will production take place, and what about worldwide distribution? But vaccine development is not the only challenge. Logistical issues arise; after all, the supply chains for vaccines are very complex. Many aspects must be taken into account, and the question is whether the (logistics) world is ready for this.
"Cosmetics, that's make-up, right?" Most people would probably say. However, cosmetics are much more than that. Everyone uses it from birth. Cosmetics is a collective name for all products that are used to guarantee or improve hygiene, physical cleanliness and appearance. And that includes not only make-up but also deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo and soap. The logistics process surrounding these products is of great importance for its quality. In this article, you can read why.
3.5 million tons of pharmaceuticals per year are transported by ship, 0.5 million tons per year by air. Although the majority of the drugs were produced in Europe, America and Japan 20 years ago, today, China and India are the leading suppliers. The main reason for this is that pharmaceutical companies were no longer able to make large profits because of too small margins. Producing in a country with low production and labour costs seemed the solution. Unfortunately, this method has been causing problems in recent years, with the current corona crisis as the lowest point.
It is an accomplished fact that safeguarding the prescribed temperature margins in the cold chain of vaccines and medicines is paramount. After all, patient safety is central. Deviations in temperature margins can lead to a shortened shelf life or reduced effect of the vaccine or drug. Therefore, these temperature margins must be continuously monitored. Temperature recorders, also known as data loggers, are usually used for this. However, registration often involves many administrative actions. LogTag Online has been developed to make this process easier and more user-friendly.
In today's 1,5 meter society, we pay more attention than ever to our health. Fruits and vegetables are essential for this. The onion, in particular, is an excellent addition to our daily menu. Not only because of the refined taste and because the onion can be used in almost any dish, but also because the onion has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, onions regulate cholesterol, are good for blood pressure and protect the heart and blood vessels.
Before a vaccine can be administered to a patient, it takes a long time. Like all products, vaccines run through a chain with several links. The conditions within that chain can affect the quality of the vaccines. Vaccines, for example, are very sensitive to temperature and light, even more so than ordinary medicines. Temperature and light have a direct influence on the effect and shelf life of vaccines and can lead to a loss.
A delicious cup of hot coffee to start the day. A daily recurring moment for many. As many as 900 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide every year, which equates to 2.5 billion cups per day or 29,000 cups per second. The top 3 coffee drinkers are Finland (1300 cups of coffee per person per year), Sweden (1070 cups per person per year) and the Netherlands (1004 cups per person per year). With the Netherlands as a major consumer of coffee, this is a good reason for Praxas to do some research into this.

The impact of the coronavirus is clear. It is a fact for many companies that will lead to a reduction in turnover due to the economic setback. The export of products is also lagging, partly due to the shortage of reefers. Logistics activities have long been halted in China, leaving reefers loaded on the harbour docks. As a result, there are far fewer empty reefers available for export from the Netherlands. Although production in China is now restarting, the shortage of reefers will continue to exist for the time being. It is estimated that currently, approximately 13% of the total number of reefers worldwide is moored in Chinese ports. Even cargo ships are full because there was no place to put the containers.
