Prevent waste
in the pharma supply chain


Patient safety is always paramount. The supply chain of medicines must comply with chain-wide protocols, including in the area of temperature conditions. Whether during transport from the manufacturer in India to the airport, during air transport itself, or at the site of storage and administration, such as a healthcare facility or pharmacy. When medicines are exposed to temperatures outside the specified ranges, this can lead to quality loss. By applying the most appropriate protection, this is prevented.  



Protecting medication on site

Before medication is administered to the patient, it is kept refrigerated at a fixed location. This can be a hospital, nursing home, pharmacy, general practice or other healthcare facility. The temperature of the environment in which the medication is stored should be monitored with temperature loggers specially designed for medications. This can be recorded manually or, in the case of multiple locations, centrally.  This will prevent loss of quality of the medication. 

Protecting medication during transport

The conditioned transport of medication must comply with specific GDP guidelines, and therefore requires accurate handling that ensures the quality of the medication. Temperature is of crucial importance here. To monitor this, temperature loggers are added to the thermobox, which can be read manually or centrally. The application of a track & trace system also offers the possibility to monitor the transport of medication in real time for both location and conditions.


Air transportation protection pharma

Air freight is often used to get medicines to their destination as quickly as possible. This too is done conditioned, where it is crucial that the cargo remains within the set temperature ranges. Are the medications getting too hot? Or too cold? Then there is a loss of quality and the medication can be discarded. To be able to control this properly, temperature monitoring is necessary. This is done with temperature loggers specially developed for pharmaceutical transports.




If you export steel or products made from steel or aluminium, you must consider the risks associated with maritime transport. After all, steel is a product that is very susceptible to damage. Imagine that your customer receives your goods and discovers rust damage for a moment. Of course, you want to avoid that at all costs. Your reputation and your relationship with the customer are at stake.

Sustainability is being dealt with more and more consciously in logistics supply chains. This also applies to transports that are equipped with desiccants. By applying desiccants during transport, cargo damage and therefore waste is reduced. Waste of goods, but think also of the waste as a result of moisture damage.

Remco has a lot of experience in the logistics sector. He has worked for companies such as DPD and DHL. At Praxas, Remco is responsible for the existing customer portfolio within the sectors Transport & Logistics and Fresh Produce. In addition, he is actively seeking partners to work with in order to achieve the goal of 0% waste in the logistics chain.
